Sporting facilities include a gymnasium, synthetic surfaced athletics track, soccer fields, basketball and tennis courts. The college operates as a Victorian School of Languages Centre each Saturday.
Curriculum: The curriculum is designed to be accessible to all students and, for Years 7 to 10, is organised around the eight Key Learning Areas or Domains. The college has a strong emphasis and history of achievement in Mathematics and Science. Music and languages are also strengths of the college, particularly with Japanese and Italian language offered from Years 7 to 12. At VCE level there is a full range of subject choices and trained careers counsellors are available to assist with subject selections and student pathways. The college offers VCAL and VET courses and Work Experience at Year 10 to help with students career planning. The college’s curriculum emphasises a strong homework policy, which aims to enhance and consolidate each student’s learning and develop independent study skills. The college has a strong curriculum support and extension program in operation.
Sport: The sport program offers most traditional sports and college teams participate in hockey, football, soccer, badminton, tennis, table tennis, volleyball, softball, netball, cricket, athletics and swimming, with great success.
Extra-curricular activities: Students are encouraged to participate in musical groups, drama productions, debating, public speaking and a range of sports. An annual exchange program is conducted with sister schools in the Shiroi district in Japan.
Student welfare programs: Students are allocated to a home group, led by a home group teacher. Students stay with their home group and their teacher until the completion of Year 12. The college is divided into four house teams. The house structure and home groups provide each student with a strong sense of connection and belonging to school. Houses are managed by a team of experienced coordinators and are supported in their role by student welfare staff and a school nurse. The college operates a Positive School-wide Behaviours program based on fair learning and fair treatment, with an emphasis on a safe and secure environment.
