Within the Middle School we aim to nurture in our students a passion for learning and an uncompromising desire to live according to God's Word.
The Middle School CORE structure allows for students to have consistency with teachers. Students will have the same teacher for AM and PM homeroom, as well for Mathematics, English, Humanities, Social Science and Bible.
This allows teachers to help understand the overall development of each child, in partnership with parents.
For specialists and elective subjects, students will have alternative teachers.
Our program is made up of the key learning areas and incorporates Electives, Specialist subjects and Bible classes.
This includes unit courses such as:
Some of our programs include:
This is a four day whole Middle School event where students form teams to solve challenges and work on Critical, Creative, Collaborative and Christlike ‘thinking’.
This is an opportunity for parents to join students and teachers in celebrating the work that has been done at school throughout the year.
All Middle School classrooms are opened, where parents can walk around and explore the work that has been done in all Year levels.
Middle School students are involved in annual camps, excursions, theme days, sports events, an instrumental music program, Maths and English extension opportunities and many other activities along the way; all designed to provide a fun, challenging and engaging atmosphere for our students to grow and thrive throughout their Middle School experience.
