Boronia K-12 College is committed to the development of students into well-educated, confident young adults, prepared to lead fulfilling and successful lives. Boronia K-12 College has the curriculum breadth and resources necessary to meet a diverse range of individual needs. The new school, when complete, will be located on one site in Albert Avenue, Boronia. The school’s unique K-12 Learning Neighbourhood structure facilitates a more personal approach to each student’s education and fosters the development of positive relationships between students, teachers and families. Enrolments are accepted at all levels. Students enrolling for Year 7 2013 at Boronia K-12 College will begin at the Rangeview Campus and can expect seamless transition through the stages of learning, in brand-new state-of-the-art purpose-built Learning Neighbourhoods. Students at the college move through Early Learning, P–4, Junior and Middle stages until they reach Year 10. They then move on to the young adult learning environment of Senior School, which provides the experienced staff and specialist facilities appropriate to the academic rigour of senior programs. Boronia K-12 College provides VCE and VCAL pathways from Year 10, enabling students to begin their chosen pathway early or spend additional time building skills and knowledge.
Facilities: The brand-new Stage 1 facilities include a new Early Learning Centre, Learning Neighbourhoods, a magnificent Performing Arts Centre, Music/Drama Centre, Science Centre, student cafe, Food Technology and associated student facilities. Stage 2 will consist of the refurbishment of several existing buildings at the Rangeview Campus as well the inclusion of newly built Learning Neighbourhoods, outdoor amphitheatres and recreation areas, an administration building, staff facilities, a Senior Programs Centre, a library and an ICT Centre. These new buildings will be linked by extensive landscaping and walkways.
Curriculum: The college offers a comprehensive and challenging curriculum based on the National Curriculum and AUSVELS. There is an extensive elective program in Middle School, offering enrichment and expansion of knowledge in traditional and non-traditional areas. Senior students have access to VCE and VCAL pathways as well as a wide range of VET subjects.
Sport: The college offers a wide range of sports throughout the year and is involved in inter-school and state sporting competitions.
Extra-curricular activities: Students have access to an extensive range of extra-curricular activities to develop leadership qualities, character and personal growth. Activities include musical and dance performances, English and mathematics competitions, environment action, student leadership forums, camps, overseas study tours and an extensive range of sporting competitions. After-hours care is also available.
Student welfare programs: Students experience the personal care of a home group teacher as their first level of support. A small group of teachers take core subjects in each Learning Neighbourhood and develop strong relationships with the students. This quickly creates a sense of belonging and camaraderie within a secure and welcoming environment. Further support is available from the Student Welfare Co-ordinator, chaplain, Adolescent Health Nurse and educational psychologist.
