Senior School Extension & Support

EXTENSION PROGRAMS

Senior School offers an array of opportunities for students to extend themselves in their particular areas of giftedness. These are designed to cater for the current group of students and are adapted as new areas of talent are identified.

 

Our HSC results continue to demonstrate the value of small class sizes and the extra attention that our student enjoy as well as the benefits of dedicated and experienced teachers, many of whom are HSC markers. For the details of our 2016 HSC see our ‘Academic Results’ page. 

 

Each year our students in Years 10 and 11 have the opportunity to be a part of a mission trip to Vanuatu. This event gives staff and students an opportunity to come into contact with a completely different culture and exposes them to the very real hardships experienced by people less fortunate than ourselves. However most importantly it allows them to serve and minister to others. It sounds clichéd but this is a truly life changing experience. For more information see the Beyond Ourselves pages.

 

In Sport we continue to have amazing success at local and representative levels.

 

In the Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) Department students have opportunities to exhibit artworks, while our Music and Drama students have a variety of performance opportunities. See the CAPA webpage for further details.

 

 

LEARNING SUPPORT

St George Christian School offers strong intentional support services to students across every educational stage. Through a collaborative approach between student, parents, teachers and ancillary staff we address the needs of the whole child. We are committed to nurturing every student to ensure that they reach their God-given potential.

 

Senior School Learning Support provides educational assistance and oversees students who have a disability or learning difficulty in Years 9-12. Most of these students shine in some area of skill or learning and they learn to build on these strengths while focusing on improving areas of weakness. Senior School Learning Support is more about ability than inability, or disability. Through Learning Support the students work towards their potential in a happy and welcoming learning environment.
