Twenty-first century education must prepare students for an unknown world. Many of our students will enter careers in their working lives that don't currently exist.

As part of Careers in Year 10 all students are required to participate in a one week Work Experience placement in an occupation or industry of their choice.  Work Experience exposes students to the world of work.  This is an opportunity to develop skills and networks and to experience possible future careers.

It is a reality that no school is able to offer all the possible subject options for Stage 5 and 6.  In order to facilitate the needs of students who would like to complete subjects not offered by the College, we provide our students with the option of accessing subjects through a number of other providers through distance education.  The New South Wales Education Standards Authority (formerly Board of Studies) have regulations governing this option, and these can be discussed with our Director of Studies and Principal.
