In common with most Secondary Colleges we anticipate that the great majority of young people will stay on to finish the required course of study for their VCE. In fact it is most important that young people do this if they are to maximize their career opportunities in later life. With this in mind, the College provides courses which raise possibilities for students to proceed directly to the workforce, to training courses with TAFE or to a tertiary institution.
However, for their VCE years to be worthwhile and fulfilling, students need to think of these years as more than just subjects to be studied. They are, in fact, part of a pathway to their future life and, if this is to be the case, then it is important that students stop and set goals for their immediate future. Some students may have goals in mind but these may need examination in the light of past performance, the abilities that have come to light over the previous years and the interests that have developed.
The VCE years offer more than a routine of study. We have a common vision which we share with other Christian colleges, aiming to uphold and promote a Christian philosophy which values a faith-centred approach to life, and upholds the uniqueness, integrity and dignity of all those who are involved in the life of the College community. The Religious Education program is a way of working together to educate students in their faith and therefore classroom units of Religion and Retreats are a compulsory part of the V.C.E. years. These final two years of school offer a young person a most valuable opportunity to develop his or her special mental abilities and manual skills, as well as the opportunity to mature emotionally, socially and spiritually within a caring Christian environment.
