Year 9

Where learning is an experience

A life-changing year

Year 9 is a tight-knit club where strong friendships are forged. Students feel comfortable, accepted, supported and connected. Our dedicated Year 9 centres at each campus are the base from which our students explore the world around them, develop self-confidence and a deeper understanding of their place in a changing world.

Teachers are highly-skilled educators who help guide our students to achieve independence, resilience, responsibility and true empathy for others.

Values can’t be taught in the classroom, they have to be experienced.

Year 9 will help students:

Develop an independent mind and attitude

Deal with controlled risks, learn to overcome adversity and tackle challenges

Participate in social awareness programs which contribute to community, foster empathy and a service attitude

Learn teamwork and collaboration

Develop responsibility, accountability, time-management and autonomy through self-managed projects

Learn outside the classroom – ‘real world’ learning

Undertake personal development and self-discovery

Enhance communication skills
