Middle Years students identify their interests and talents through a range of subjects and disciplines in preparation for Senior School. We recognise the importance of deep and applied knowledge, as well as providing opportunities for students to develop the softer skills such as personal and time management, goal setting, critical thinking and collaboration.

Homeroom teachers mentor students spiritually with daily devotions, encouraging them to seek God and know Him personally.

Year 9 Amplify

The Year 9 Amplify program enables each student to consolidate the skills learned in previous years whilst allowing them to specialise in areas of interest through Electives. This is a time where they can explore the various subjects that will be available to them in Senior Secondary. It’s a time for students to spread their wings.

Year 9 students participate in The Rite Journey. For over 20 years The Rite Journey has been providing unique educational programs in schools and organisations designed to support the development of self-aware, responsible, respectful, resilient and resourceful adults.
