Quality teaching and learning
We offer our students learning experiences in a wide range of subject areas. As well as offering the core subjects such as Mathematics, English, Science, History and Geography, we have an extensive elective program that caters to the individual talents of our students in the Social Sciences, the Arts, Home Economics, Hospitality, Sport and Industrial Arts.
We challenge our academically gifted students by streaming in Mathematics, English and Science while teaching to all levels of achievement for the School Certificate and Higher School Certificate.
Our staff are fully accredited and experienced experts in their subject areas with many possessing Higher University qualifications and are supported by a well funded Professional Development program.
We are a welcoming and friendly school with strong and valued links. Our students enjoy intensive work experience programs in year 10 and well into their senior years as well as the benefits of vocational courses at Moss Vale TAFE.
Our pastoral care and mentoring programs ensure our students feel cared for and valued throughout their school lives. We have a vibrant Student Representative Council who organise fundraising and foster links to various groups in the local community.
The school has a focus on shared decision making and relies upon an enthusiastic and committed group of student leaders to work alongside staff and parents to develop and implement shared school goals.
Our support unit is operated by expertly and fully trained staff supported by a strong Regional and Statewide network.
