subjects on the basis of need, talent and interest. The school accommodates a
wide range of student backgrounds, and a pastoral care system encourages
personal development and individual responsibility.

centre, which is a student-led learning environment where students can follow
specific themes in their choice of subjects. There is also ESL and a Gifted and
Talented Program. At the heart of the College are its traditional Benedictine
values: compassion, justice, wisdom, learning, harmony, balance, hospitality
and stewardship. The College has a strong Justice Peace and Ecology Program.
