Boarding facilities: The boarding house, renovated in 2009, offers a relaxed, friendly atmosphere in which students can grow in self-esteem and reach their full potential in all areas of school life. The younger boarders are accommodated in rooms of four which encourages them to live co-operatively with one another. Year 11 students are allocated double rooms. To further strengthen the bonds between boarders, the grouping of students in each room is changed periodically. In their final year of school, the Year 12 boarders are assigned their own rooms. Within the house there are several laundries, kitchens for casual snacks and common rooms where students are able to share experiences and relax. For senior students, prep is undertaken in their own rooms and at the younger year levels, students study in the library with a tutor, thus developing sound, disciplined study habits for the senior years.
Curriculum: A broad, rich, liberal curriculum is available from ELC to VCE. University enhancement subjects and Mandarin Chinese, Italian, French and Latin are part of the curriculum. The use of notebook computers is an integral part of the curriculum from Year 3 onwards. Extension and enrichment opportunities exist across all curriculum domains. Opportunities are available for students to study in France, Italy, China and England. Excellent academic results, high levels of artistic and cultural achievements and a supportive pastoral care program are all features of this vibrant inner-city school.
Sport: The comprehensive program, with inter-school and inter-house competition, includes swimming, athletics, netball, softball, hockey, volleyball, gymnastics, tennis, rowing, snow sports, badminton and cross-country. Broad participation and elite sports performance are encouraged.
Co-curricular activities: Music activities include a variety of choral and orchestral groups and an inter-house music competition. Annually, the school presents several drama and music productions. Wider activities include debating, public speaking and social service.
Student welfare programs: Personal dimensions mentors, year-level co-ordinators, directors of students and the deputy principal work together with teaching staff to promote student wellbeing.
