Learning

Our dynamic Greenways Campus is a successful model of diverse and interactive engagement. In keeping with the School’s Together-Apart-Together model, we provide separate gender classrooms, with the exception of some selected co-curricular activities.

Independence and creativity are key skills to support their transition both through and beyond school. Our strong academic program includes a broad offering of academic subjects along with a Personal Project imperative; a long-term multimedia project that allows each student to research, develop and present a body of work on a chosen passion. Students select one Focus Area, which includes Entrepreneurship, Health and Social Education, Community and Service or Environments, to develop greater global awareness, international understanding and an appreciation of cultural diversity.

The academic program is supported by exciting Learning Journeys that develop personal growth and resilience. These, often profound, journeys are designed to challenge our students and take them out of their comfort zone to keep all of our Year 9s developing and learning to their full potential.

“Our Campus model is to provide each student with an abundance of opportunities to succeed and thrive to prepare them all for a fast-paced, changing world. ”

This process is well supported by the RULER program, which underpins the social success of the students’ time away. They are encouraged to inspire each other by sharing their stories, their goals and their passions. The program is an inspiring example of teamwork and camaraderie.

Whilst being involved in Arts and Sports programs and the life of the School, by the end of Year 9 our students are well prepared to move into their VCE years in Frogmore.

Guided by specialist outdoor education staff, each Learning Journey is designed to both complement and extend the learning that occurs within the Campus. Each class spends a four-week block away from the classroom immersed in a range of inspiring urban, rural and coastal environments, each designed to challenge them physically and emotionally. 

Each experience allows the students to look at the world through the eyes of another. Greenways students are encouraged to keep an open mind about issues such as the environment, sustainability, homelessness, disadvantage and youth mental health.

Learning about decision making, individual values and how they best learn all support the program’s personal, social and academic objectives.

Greenways students also spend time learning how to manage their student-run café. They learn valuable skills in hospitality, financial literacy, marketing and business management and all complete an accredited barista certificate and food handling qualification.
