Caulfield Grammar School


Caulfield Grammar School is a Kindergarten to Year 12 co-educational day and boarding school well known for its innovative approaches to teaching and learning. It has three Melbourne campuses — Wheelers Hill, Malvern and Caulfield — as well as two remote campuses — the Nanjing Campus in China and the Yarra Junction Campus in rural Victoria. Specialist teachers are better able to address the needs of individual students with teachers supported by an extensive professional development program. Caulfield Grammar School is associated with the Anglican Church.

Melbourne Campuses: The Malvern Campus offers learning to children from Kindergarten to Year 6 level, the Wheelers Hill Campus from Pre-Prep to Year 12, and the Caulfield Campus offers day and boarding schooling for Years 7 to 12. Each metropolitan campus has a library, modern classrooms, specialist computer, arts, music, theatre and science centres, gymnasium, swimming pool, indoor and outdoor playing courts and oval.

Nanjing Campus, China: Opened in 1998, Caulfield Grammar School’s purpose-built Nanjing Campus is the first of its kind for any Australian school and hosts the school’s Internationalism Program. The Internationalism Program recognises that Caulfield’s students are members not only of the school, local and Australian communities but also of the global community. Caulfield Grammar’s belief is that the most effective means of preparing students to meet this challenge is through the intensive study of another language and culture, including a period of immersion in that culture. As part of Year 9 internationalism studies, each student has the opportunity to live and learn in Nanjing for five weeks. They come to know Chinese students and their families and learn about the patterns of their daily lives. The program promotes personal independence and the development of skills associated with living, learning and operating in an unfamiliar cultural environment, with students encouraged to take responsibility for designing and activating their own learning.

Yarra Junction Campus: The Yarra Junction Campus is 100km from Melbourne and is the school’s location for much of the outdoors education, environmental studies and farm studies programs presented to students, beginning with their first visit in the Junior years. The unique features of the Yarra Junction Campus include a 13.5-hectare commercial dairy farm and a completely self-sufficient Earth Studies Centre. This inspiring classroom gathers all its electricity and hot water needs through the use of solar and wind power. The environmentally sound principles of the Earth Studies Centre are carried through to the students’ eco-cabins, which are an additional learning space for students. While staying at Yarra Junction Campus, students live within eco-cabins and monitor and study their usage of resources.

Facilities: At Caulfield Grammar School all teachers participate in an extensive professional development program that enables them to meet the particular needs of individual children throughout the different stages of their learning. Some teachers specialise in a particular learning discipline, such as science, music, or drama. Others specialise in teaching particular year levels or in providing pastoral care. The staffing structure supports the school’s commitment to delivering the best possible teaching and learning practices and fostering a learning culture. For instance, classroom teachers are supported by year-level team leaders (at Primary) or subject-based learning area leaders (at Secondary), who are in turn co-ordinated by heads of teaching and learning for specific year levels. The sports program is delivered by specialist coaches highly qualified in training students in their chosen sport.

Curriculum: A wide range of academic areas is offered up to VCE level. Students with the ability and desire are encouraged to undertake university subjects. Please contact the school for a complete listing of the academic areas.

Sport: Caulfield Grammar offers a wide range of sporting activities including rowing, football, hockey, tennis, softball, netball, cross-country, swimming, athletics, badminton, table tennis, volleyball and basketball. As a member of the Victorian Associated Public Schools, the school participates in weekly competitions.

Extra-curricular activities: A variety of activities including private tuition in singing and musical instruments, bands, orchestras and choirs, productions ranging from class drama to public performances of plays and full-scale musicals. Music and performing arts activities include concerts and overseas tours. There is also an artist-in-residence program and visual arts exhibitions. Other activities include St John Ambulance, chess, debating, publishing, Christian Fellowship groups and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, as well as regular house activities.

Boarding facilities: Caulfield Grammar School has been a boarding school since it was founded in 1881 and has a strong commitment to providing the best possible environment for girls and boys living away from home. Caulfield Grammar is the only Associated Public School in metropolitan Melbourne to offer boarding to both boys and girls. Purpose-built accommodation is provided separately for boys and girls, with recreation and dining facilities being shared. The Head of Boarding is assisted by a committed and experienced team of residential boarding supervisors, tutors and academic staff who provide quality care and support to individual students, monitoring each boarder’s progress and addressing individual needs. Boarding students have access to personal tutors and to the school’s resources, such as the library, indoor heated swimming pool, tennis courts, playing fields and fully equipped gymnasium. Every room has computer network facilities enabling students to bring in their own computer, with computers also provided in the boarding house study areas. A variety of bedroom configurations are offered, with no more than four students to a room. Senior students are provided with their own bedroom. Weekend activities include school sport and games, excursions, socials with other boarding schools and approved visits to family and friends.

The Geelong College


The Geelong College is a Uniting Church coeducational day and boarding school, with 1,300 students aged 3 to 18. We are an open and inclusive community of learners, serving the needs of young people and their families. Our college has great and proud traditions. It is well known as one of Victoria’s finest schools and is highly respected both interstate and overseas, both for its student academic achievements, and its broad and innovative learning opportunities.

We pride ourselves on helping every student to achieve their best. We provide an extremely diverse range of learning opportunities so that our students can explore a wide variety of pathways as they prepare for a rapidly changing future. We also believe passionately in coeducation in boys and girls learning and leading together. We want our students to develop their curiosity, their imagination and their confidence in themselves. We want them to be compassionate and caring, thoughtful of others. We want them to think and problem-solve, as well as to develop independence, and personal and social responsibility. We want them to aspire to be the best they can be.

The world ahead needs clever and confident citizens eager to lead into the future and we are committed to helping our students do just that.

Curriculum: Our Vision for Learning expresses how our young people become independent global citizens who understand that the most important aspect of a modern education is learning to how to learn. Our key learning dimensions are: identity, creativity, thinking, communicating, contributing, creating and enterprising. They are the capabilities that young people need for growing, working, and participating in their communities in a changing and global society. They are integrated within subject disciplines, in projects and in extra-curricular opportunities. The Geelong College offers an extensive range of learning experiences and opportunities for students from Early Learning to Year 12. In Years 10, 11 and 12 an extensive range of VCE and VET programs are offered and learning is extended through conferences, excursions, camps, community service projects and other experiences. Across the Junior and Middle Schools the core skills of Literacy and Numeracy are developed and consolidated through enquiry and visible learning, student-led projects and a broad range of subjects such as art, science, languages and the performing arts taught by specialist teachers.

Sport: The College is a member of the Associated Public Schools (APS) network. From Year 7 students choose summer, winter and spring sports and compete for the College each weekend. Training is held regularly and students of all abilities develop skills, teamwork and fitness as well as mixing with a broad range of students. Classroom Physical Education is taught by specialists at all levels, and house sports and regional competitions add to the thriving sport, health and fitness program.

Co-curricular activities: Drama, dance, vocal and instrumental music, visual arts, debating, expeditions, international experiences, community service activities and an array of sporting activities are offered and are designed to foster self-confidence, responsibility, teamwork, friendship, and a respect for others. Global and local community connections help to broaden students’ perspective and to develop tolerance, understanding and commitment to making a positive difference to their world.

Wellbeing programs: At Geelong College we see social and emotional learning as a key part of educating the whole child. The link between wellbeing and effective learning is well documented so we work with students of all ages to develop tools they need to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others and establish and maintain positive relationships. We do this through our TripleR program, where we focus on the three R’s — Resilience, Relationships and Reflection and aim to develop a common language and open conversation between staff, parents and students. The TripleR program is the cornerstone of our wellbeing network and is reflected in our classes, within the house system and through community service, sport and co-curricular activities. Students are actively supported in their development by the Director of Student Wellbeing, Classroom teachers, Learning Mentors, Heads of House and the School Psychologist.

Facilities: Senior School is home to both history and innovation, with state-of-the-art facilities including the resource-rich George Morrison Library, the Recreation Centre with its diving area, heated indoor pool, gymnasium and weights room, the Austin Gray Centre for Visual and Creative Arts and the Keith Humble Centre for Music and the Performing Arts, nestled within the historic grounds. The Middle School is the learning centre for students in Years 4 to 8. Housing our beautiful and fruitful kitchen garden and enviro centre, ovals, sports facilities and play areas, in addition to specialist science laboratories, a drama studio and multi-media centre. The newly refurbished Middle School features open-plan learning spaces that are designed to be flexible, contemporary and to encourage shared learning and broad perspectives. Our Junior School is a dynamic community for our Early Learners to Year 3 students, where they are encouraged to grow and explore learning in a Reggio Emilia inspired program featuring energetic and colourful classrooms and a warm village-like space.

Boarding: With approximately 100 boarders, the College offers a family-style boarding experience that encourages friendship, independence and academic excellence. Boarding life is rich and fulfilling, combining homework, sport and other co-curricular activities, with time to relax. Each weeknight, boarders have two hours of study time with specialist academic tutors available to assist them. The College has two separate boarding houses, adjacent to the school. Mossgiel, the girls’ house, has units where girls from different year levels live together in single or double rooms with shared bathrooms, lounges and kitchenettes. Mackie, the boys’ house, has single rooms with shared bathrooms and looks out over the oval. Both boarding houses have informal areas where boarders can watch television or play games, and entertain friends after school. Flexible and short stay boarding options are also available.

The Kilmore International School


The Kilmore International School (TKIS) was established in 1989 as an independent, non–denominational and co-educational boarding and day school for academically motivated students.  Classes are offered from Years 3 to 12 with boarding available from Year 7.

The School is conveniently located in a healthy, rural setting in the town of Kilmore, 58 kilometres North of Melbourne’s CBD, linked via freeway to both the city and Melbourne’s International Airport.  Kilmore is particularly suitable as an educational centre as it does not suffer the social problems that plague larger cities.

The motto of the School – “Excellentia Academica Persequenda” – literally means ‘the pursuit of academic excellence’.  Our mission is to encourage each and every student to reach their full academic potential.  The School is unique in Australia in providing to all students in Years 11 and 12 the academically rigorous International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. This program has an internationally recognised track record of facilitating entrance to university courses around the world and of preparing students for completion of those university courses with high levels of achievement.

Facilities: Recreational facilities on campus or adjacent to the school include soccer fields, basketball court, tennis courts, gymnasium, indoor heated swimming pool and golf course.

Boarding facilities: Boarding for boys and girls is in separate dormitory-style accommodation on the campus or in twin- share motel-style accommodation adjacent to or near the school. Experienced boarding staff provide care and comfort for students 24 hours a day. Nutritious meals are chosen from an international menu. Recreational areas in each boarding house provide for music, TV and indoor games. Day trips are organised on some weekends throughout the year and a school camp is organised as part of the normal educational program. The camp usually include activities such as mountaineering, bush walking, canoeing, rock climbing, sight-seeing etc.

Curriculum: Years 3-9 are designed to challenge capable students and to provide special assistance for students in problem areas. Year 10 is designed as a bridging program to specifically prepare students for entry to the IB Diploma Programme in Years 11 and 12. In Years 11 and 12, students choose six subjects and study the same subjects over two years.

All students at the school learn a second language. Languages are taught at first and second language level and include English, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Indonesian, Thai, Vietnamese and German.

International Baccalaureate: All IB Diploma candidates are required to engage in the study of Languages, Sciences, Mathematics, Humanities and Fine Arts. Prestigious universities worldwide keenly seek students holding the IB Diploma. Most institutions grant direct entry, often according ‘advanced placement recognition’ to IB graduates without them being required to sit local examinations or pass other assessment tests.

Each year TKIS students achieve outstanding results with the majority of graduates attaining an ATAR of above 90. For a list of recent graduate IB scores and university offers please visit the TKIS website.

The Kilmore International School is extremely proud of its graduate outcomes.  Having sent students to top universities throughout the world including Australia, UK, USA, Canada, Switzerland, Japan, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Korea and New Zealand for many years, and seen them go on to gain highly paid employment in prestigious and demanding professions all over the world, we have ample reason to believe in the strength of the IB program and the opportunities it provides for motivated students.

Welfare and personal development: Individual attention is given to the general well-being of each student including both academic and personal development. Every student has an academic adviser who reports on the progress of the students and each student’s progress is strictly monitored to ensure that their full potential is reached.

Home » Schools » ASHWOOD COLLEGE

ASHWOOD COLLEGE


Ashwood College is a medium-sized school; large enough to operate an extensive program yet small enough to give each student a special place in the community. Uniform is compulsory for all of the college’s students.

Facilities: The spacious landscaped grounds include a unique wetland nature reserve and many sports fields. Computer laboratories, extensive library facilities, a music and new performing arts complex and modern technology workshops support a relevant and innovative learning environment. A state-of-the-art Science Centre was opened in December 2011 and the college has been prioritised for further modernisation under the State funding.

Curriculum: The college provides a comprehensive Year 7 to 10 vertical curriculum based on the Victorian Essential Learning Standards and includes a broad range of units of study. Students are able to select subjects at the appropriate level of challenge and in a context and area of interest. The college promotes an integrated, inquiry, evidence-based approach to curriculum which effectively meets the learning needs of all students. The 21st-century curriculum provides rich, real-world tasks to embed skills and knowledge while at the same time developing the student as a whole in order for them to embark upon their post-school future capably and confidently. French or Chinese cultural studies are compulsory in Years 7 and 8 and Year 7 students undergo a six-month transition program to ensure a successful transition to secondary school. Year 9 students undertake an Inquiry unit which aims at improving student engagement while the Work Experience, Vocational Education and Community programs at Year 10 have been extended to provide students with local and global understandings. VCAL provides for an alternative pathway for VCE for students in Years 11 and 12. Students in Year 10 are able to access VCE subjects
as part of their study and career plan.
All students at the college have access to 1:1 learning devices, iPads and Netbooks and teaching practice incorporates these learning tools. The college has a strong International Students program. All students are encouraged to excel. Catering
for individual differences is the school’s first priority.

Extra-curricular activities
: Instrumental and vocal music, annual musical and dramatic productions, inter- and intra-school sport, debating, international student exchange visits and a strong camps
program are part of an extensive extra-curricular program.

Student welfare programs
: A strong cross-age pastoral care and a supervised homework program runs after school hours. Students are actively encouraged to take up leadership positions through the House system, the Student Leadership Team
and by undertaking peer support. Parents are closely involved with their child’s progress and college activities.
