OVERNEWTON ANGLICAN COMMUNITY COLLEGE


Overnewton Anglican Community College was founded in 1987. On two campuses at Keilor and Taylors Lakes — both an easy 20-minute drive from the Melbourne CBD — the college is organised into six student communities. At each campus there is a Junior School (Prep to Year 4) and a Middle School (Years 5 to 8). All Year 9 students attend a separate centre, Canowindra, located at the Taylors Lakes Campus and the Senior School (Years 10 to 12) is at the Keilor Campus. Junior School gently develops the child’s basic intellectual and social skills, while Middle School challenges and excites the adolescent.

The Year 9 centre has a unique program which encourages independent, enthusiastic, applied learning. The Senior School gives a head start to VCE and produces the excellent results for which the college is known. Overnewton College is known for the commitment it makes and expects the same of its families. All families are actively involved at the college through a compulsory commitment to 18 hours’ service per term, enabling a true sense of community to develop within. 

Curriculum: A broad, engaging and  innovative curriculum is delivered with a strong emphasis on pastoral care. Each school presents programs specifically designed to meet the developmental needs of its students and to keep them engaged in their learning. Transition between the schools is monitored very carefully to ensure a smooth journey from preparatory to senior years. Students acquire a love of learning that is reflected in high entry levels to tertiary and further education institutions. Christian education is a core subject at all levels and promotes the development of individual moral and Christian values in the context of family and community living. A diverse range of academic, physical and cultural experiences helps students grow into confident, self-reliant and capable young adults. Skilled vocational preparation and guidance is provided.

Co-curricular activities: Overnewton College offers a strong co-curricular program in music and the performing arts, debating and sport. The college is a member of the Association of Co-educational Schools which provides a strong sporting program amongst schools of a similar size.

Student welfare programs: Overnewton College’s school-based structure allows each student to develop as a valued individual, both within a year level grouping and (in Middle and Senior School) as part of a vertical House system that encourages cross age interaction. An emphasis is placed on family commitment and parental involvement — the teaming of parents, students and teachers in a strong home-school partnership creates a caring community that upholds family values.
