CURRICULUM

We believe that, as a Catholic secondary school for girls in the Brigidine tradition, curriculum is developed within a framewrok of values and pratices that are consistent with the gospel teachings of Jesus.

The College is committed to following the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians December 2008.

We are committed to engendering a love of learning that promotes students’ sense of belonging, self esteem and resilience. Students learn in a collaborative and cooperative environment which caters for the many learning styles of experiences of the girls. The curriculum continues to evolve to the needs, interests and talents of all students.
