Welcome to Middle School – Years 7 to 9
Middle School aims to create a supportive environment that promotes a sense of belonging and connectedness by engaging students in stimulating, challenging learning experiences that develop skills and understandings, enabling them to contribute in significant ways to an increasingly interdependent world.
Today’s young people are living in an exciting time, with an increasingly diverse society, new technologies and expanding opportunities. During early adolescents they face unique and diverse challenges, personally and developmentally. It is a time when young people begin their quest for independence and seek their own sense of individuality.
The supportive environment of the Middle School promotes involvement, empowerment, discovery and independence. One of the greatest gifts we can give our girls is the freedom to explore their interests and develop their strengths. The Middle School curriculum, inside and outside the classroom, is rich and diverse and is designed to give each girl the opportunity to discover and nurture her individual skills and talents. Involvement in co-curricular activities encourages participation and accommodates students’ interests that can augment academic success, enhance self-confidence, as well as enriching and building the community life of the school.
The Middle School is an exciting, engaging and relevant experience where girls are encouraged to become independent thinkers, taking responsibility for their actions and for their learning. A strong culture of engagement in learning helps to promote new connections and creativity. Leadership, team building, social and cultural awareness, and a strong sense of personal self-worth are key elements to the Middle School experience.
