The Middle Years Phase of Learning incorporates Years 7 to 9. A dynamic curriculum has been created to engage and challenge student perceptions, perspectives and opinions. To achieve this we utilise the ACARA National Curriculum, along with the Brisbane Catholic Education religious education program and Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) directives.
In Year 9 students and respective staff embark on a journey of discovery - The Damascus Program. The Damascus Program aims to assist students to 'Seek the Light', incorporating a week-long experience centred on rural immersion and in-school programs which address issues such as spirituality, environmental stewardship, urban awareness, team building, body image and fitness. Students in Year 9 need to be challenged to discover their place in the world. Therefore, they are involved in a learning program which involves a series of on-campus and off-campus activities as part of the Damascus Program. The Damascus Program has the potential to be life changing by challenging the physical, emotional, spiritual, cognitive and social limits of each student. The Damascus Program develops the skills and attributes cultivated throughout the Middle Years Phase of Learning, including responsibility; communication; planning and organisation; flexibility; decision-making; problem solving and creative thinking; working with others and in teams and active participation.
The emphasis throughout the Middle Years is to impart lifelong independent learning skills that will prepare students for the Senior Phase of Learning. The mission of staff and students of the Middle Years Phase of Learning is to 'Seek the Light' through Excellence and Success.
