Our broad curriculum involves each student in a wide range of learning experiences. Each learning area is designed to engage maximum student interest and curiosity by providing learning opportunities that are flexible and develop an awareness of the world we live in.

The College has established a proud reputation in the performing arts. The quality of our school performances often rivals professional productions. Our music groups perform exceptionally well in regional music competitions.
The sense of teamwork as well as personal excellence is evidenced in the extensive sporting opportunities that we offer our students. These include all major sporting codes but also minor ones such as lawn bowls,underwater hockey, and equestrian.
Student leadership is encouraged and nurtured through such opportunities as House leaders and committees, Peer Support, arts and sports council and Year 13 committee. The senior leaders have many opportunities to lead by example and manage events and activities.
