KOLBE CATHOLIC COLLEGE GREENVALE LAKES


As a Catholic school, Kolbe Catholic College seeks to educate the whole person, and integrate Faith with the culture and life of a developing young person in Australian society. Priority is given to fostering each person’s best expression of self. Particular attention is given to the holistic view of a contemporary curriculum, with an emphasis on teaching vital skills, such as literacy, numeracy and social  co-operation, whilst integrating knowledge, skills and values across all learning areas.

The college community is inspired by the legacy of St Maximilian Kolbe — a story of heroism, courage and self-sacrifice; a beacon of hope for the future. As a college community, we are committed to building strength of character within our students; encouraging them to become resilient, compassionate, principled, responsible, caring members of the community.

Facilities: College resources currently serve the delivery of curriculum in all VELS domains. VCE and VCAL include 32 generalpurpose learning areas; Science building with four laboratories; two Art/Graphics rooms; Industrial Arts Building for Woodwork and Metalwork; Food Technology room; and a Library Resource Centre. All students are given a MacBook laptop computer. Other facilities include the indoor stadium which has two basketball courts and a stage; the outdoor tigerturf basketball courts (four); main oval and the new Administration and Library Resource Centre.

Curriculum: The curriculum aims to promote excellence in learning. Catering for the diversity of ways in which people learn is emphasised with focus on technological and inquiry-based approaches. Personalised learning programs and provision of engaging integrated units at Year 7 (Stepping Stones), Year 8 (Inquiring Minds Program) and Year 9 (Leadership Enhancement Activity Day) meet these objectives. The curriculum also aims to: give students access to the traditions of the Catholic community through an understanding of, and opportunities to celebrate, its beliefs and practices; create a school environment which responds creatively to the cultural and linguistic diversity within the Australian society and which includes appropriate English language support; affirm students as persons of dignity and worth through an acknowledgment of their gifts and talents.
