Middle Years - Excellence and Success

The emphasis throughout the Middle Years Phase of Learning is to impart lifelong independent learning skills that will prepare students for the Senior Phase of Learning and life thereafter. Student's perceptions, perspectives and opinions are challenged while their social, emotional, spiritual, cultural and intellectual needs are nurtured and developed.

The award-winning Damascus program in Year 9 takes students and staff on a journey of discovery where students are challenged to find their place in the world through a learning program which involves a series of on-campus and off-campus activities focusing on spirituality, environmental stewardship, urban awareness, team building, body image and fitness. The program culminates with a one week rural immersion to Western Queensland which has the potential to be life changing.

Senior Years - Lifelong Independent Learning

Leadership is the focus for Year 10, 11 and 12 where students are provided with a myriad of opportunities to involve themselves with younger students by means of sporting interaction and development, pastoral care and cultural activities such as College musicals, Patron's Day celebrations, Mass and liturgies. Students are encouraged to contribute positively to local communities and friendships are sealed for life.

Academically, students are encouraged to study subjects which most suit their interests, capabilities, talents and career aspirations. At the end of the Senior Years Phase of Learning SCCC students would have been provided the very best opportunities to mature academically, emotionally, socially, spiritually and vocationally.

A broad range of subjects to choose from...

SCCC secondary students are able to study a selection of subjects from a broad range of learning areas, which are described below. The availability of elective subjects will vary from year to year, however a comprehensive guide to subjects from Year 7 to 12 can be found at the bottom of this page.
