Our values are encapsulated in our College motto which aims to support excellence in learning and student development:

Safe: valuing diversity and each individual for their own qualities and abilities
Secure: being treated consistently and with respect
Known: the growth and development of self esteem and self confidence
Noticed: acknowledging effort and celebrating successes

Our learning program is student centered, with a key focus of the College being the building and maintenance of positive relationships to ensure that individual student learning is the best it can be.

This is achieved through the provision of an extensive pastoral care program, structuring of the program in large blocks of time, where the number of teachers students meet on a weekly basis is minimized and therefore strong and meaningful relationships are established between teachers and their students.

The learning aims to be authentic, task based and engaging for students of all abilities.

A new school with a current multi million dollar building program provides the College with excellent physical resources. These support and enhance our excellent learning programs. Our programs include the provision of a broad range of opportunities for enrichment and extension of all students and involvement in a wide range of sporting challenges.

Our extra curricula programs include debating, a social justice group supporting communities in developing countries, a sister school relationship with schools in Indonesia and Japan, opportunities for overseas trips, debating, Rock Eisteddfod, Arts festival, music program and much more.

Our CONNECTIONS program designed specifically to engage year 9 students has been recognized through DEECD excellence awards and the building of a new $6 million dollar Middle Years wing will enable a new and innovative approach to the teaching of students in Years 7 and 8 based on world best practice.
