The school engages students in the learning process, challenges them to take responsibility for their own learning and encourages them to strive for personal excellence. The Biretta class (introduced in 2010) is composed of very able students and features appropriate levels of differentiation, extension and enhancement. The program emphasises higher order skills in thinking, ICT, research and evaluation. Various subjects will be compacted so that time is preserved in the curriculum for enrichment and extension. Salesian’s innovative Year 9 Program conducted on the completely separate Mannix Campus encourages growing independence, offers hands-on learning experiences and adopts an enquiry learning approach. Learning support programs and wellbeing programs are essential elements of the curriculum.
