Middle School (Years 7 – 9)
The middle school aims to provide a unique experience for students in a rewarding and understanding learning environment that recognises the needs of young adolescents. Middle school sees the introduction of year-level based home groups that allow for a productive and efficient routine to be established. Students are progressively exposed to a wider range of specialist teachers in middle school, in preparation for senior school.
Middle school aims to meet the educational, developmental, and social needs that emerge in this transitional period. The middle school program provides a supportive and flexible environment so students will have opportunities to develop skills and explore a variety of learning experiences.
Each home group teacher works very closely with the students in his/her home group and, through the development of positive relationships, is able to ensure that the social and emotional needs of each student are met. Regular communication between parents and the home group teacher is encouraged to keep staff and parents informed.
