The Junior Years (Prep to Year 6)

The Junior Campus is set in lush green surroundings with ample space for play and sport. Each year level has three classes and each class has an air-conditioned classroom equipped with an Interactive White board and a range of IT facilities. Every child at our College is valued as an individual and we focus on the specific needs of each one. Our teaching staff aims to instil a joy of learning and equip our students to become lifelong learners. During the Prep year foundations are laid for the development of literacy and numeracy skills. Our three class teachers and their permanent aids ensure a smooth transition into Year 1 while at the same time providing a fun and stimulating Prep experience. As the students’ progress through the years they move from learning to read tor reading to learn. In addition to core subjects of Math english christian Studies and Integrated Studies which are led by the class teachers specialist teachers conduct lessons in HPE music library and LOTE (Years 4-6)Outside of the class room the students enjoy a wide range of excursions and camps. Additionally co-curricular opportunities are available for students to be involved in sports and an extensive music program.

The Middle Years (Years 7 to 9)

The Middle Years Program for students in Years 7 to 9 guides students through the transition from Primary School to be both academically and socially ready for the demands of the Senior Years. The excellent and expanding Middle School facilities at our Senior Campus enable staff to lead the students through a curriculum that is both challenging and engaging. In addition to furthering students’ academic skills the Middle Years program offers a wide range of opportunities to students for social emotional and spiritual development. A key part of this is the combined Christian Studies and HPE program undertaken by Year 9 students called Ubuntu. Throughout the year students tackle a range of challenges and the project culminates in a two week outdoor education experience at Mt Binga. Additionally alongside the traditional curriculum students participate in a Thinking Skills program which aims to equip the students with a range of skills enabling them to think creatively and critically. Students are then encouraged to use these skills in other areas of the curriculum deepening and enriching their learning experience. Middle School students all participate in our leadership program through membership of a multi age group TEAM of their interest including; Environment community Health and Worship. In addition Middle School and Sports Captains are elected in Year 9. Outside of the classroom there is a wide range of both sporting and musical opportunities for students to participate in.

The Senior Years (Years 10 to 12)

At Prince of Peace Senior School we pride ourselves in providing a flexible curriculum structure that offers students as many course options as possible in a small class environment with committed and caring teaching staff. Students are able to following the traditional route towards and OP or follow a range of more vocational options depending on their personal interests and skills. Year 10 studies further develop the students’ core skills and form a strong foundation for a successful Year 11 and 12. Students choose six elective subjects which they study alongside Maths and English. At the end of the year they develop their Senior Education and Training Plan (SET) which aims to structure their learning for their final two years at school around their abilities interests’ aims and ambitions. Students commence year 11 with a clear view of the direction that their studies will take them. Those that have chosen the OP route with study English and five other elective subjects from a choice of over 20 options. Aside from OP students can choose to follow a variety of paths. We work in close partnership with external education providers to ensure that the needs of our students are met. For example in 2012 we had students participating in a number of programs at Southbank TAFE alongside their studies on the campus. Leadership opportunities are varied and plentiful for Senior Students. Along with our College and House Captains which are elected during the middle of Year 11 students join a Senior Action Team of their choice.
