The New Campus: you are part of the process
Next Thursday, March 5 from 6:30pm we are having a meeting here at the College to discuss developments essential for the New Senior Campus. We will be discussing the interplay between academic courses for students aiming at University Entrance, Vocational Education programs which give students TAFE recognised certificates and Trade Training.
Mundaring Christian College is actually a signatory partner in the Trade Training Centre which our students will be able to utilise from 2016. Mr Peter Bolt, the director of the Trade Training Centre will be at the meeting to provide information.
We will also provide information with regard to career and course choice advice that we will be offering students as they head into the senior years of education.
The process of developing courses for the new campus will be consultative and cater for student and parent input. It is very important that you play a part in the process and are fully informed. Dr Perso will be further clarifying elements of the Australian Curriculum.
The exciting aspect of moving to provide courses for students through to Year 11 in 2016 and then Year 12 in 2017 is the capacity to cater for students as individuals which will give them great advantage and opportunity academically. Our senior staff members have a wealth of experience with Years 11 and 12. I have enjoyed teaching History and Mathematics at this level.
The building is progressing according to generous timelines. The plans and dreams of staff, parents and students are quickly forming into near reality.
From 2016 all of our students from Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 will be moving to our new campus which is a profoundly innovative design in terms of creative architecture and advanced academic and vocational opportunity.
The design of the College has been around three pillars that will lay foundations for future student success:
- Lifelong independent learning
- Creativity as a life skill
- The development of strong character
