Years 7-9

The transition from Upper Primary into the Secondary Years is an exciting time in the life of a young person. Independence is important and we aim to support this as our Junior High students learn to navigate a timetable that moves them from one classroom to another, working with different teachers throughout the day. We believe it is imperative to foster the developing intellectual, social, emotional and physical skills of our Years 7-9 students and  we do this with a philosophy and pedagogy appropriate for this stage of their lives.

Care, Dignity & Respect

Junior High is designed specifically to care for, support and guide our young adolescents in Years 7–9. Dedicated Pastoral Care teachers and a Junior High Key Pastoral Care teacher ensure that students have people who will nurture and advise them as they negotiate the early years of the Secondary Years. Academic study in Junior High is based on the concept that all students should study an essential common curriculum for an introduction to the major fields of human knowledge. Therefore, subject specialisation is delayed until Year 10.

Students in Junior High study the Australian Curriculum in English, Mathematics, Science, the Humanities, French, Health and Physical Education, Digital and Design Technology, and the Arts (Music, Drama and Visual Art). They undertake Christian Studies, which provides them with opportunities to develop their knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith, and are encouraged to challenge and extend themselves through a variety of opportunities. These include the Year 7 Camp, Year 8 Production and Year 9 Ironbark Outdoor Education Experience.
