As a school that prides itself on its small personised size, we at the North-West Christian School, value the personalisation of all learning. The division of our school into three distinct learning phases of Primary, Middle and High School further personalises the uniqueness of our educational delivery to each and every one of our students.
Our High School delivers a curriculum that is formulated to combine the learning of the past into a final preparation for each child’s post Year 10 challenges. We want the very best for each child’s future which includes their physical, spiritual and academic achievement. We believe that any child can realise their potential and that collectively as a team ‘their dream’ can be achieved. Our High School program will provide a sound foundation for whatever career path your child will choose. Our curriculum will provide the smooth transition from our Year 10 to Tasmanian senior secondary schools, TAS TAFE or other educational destination.
Our students in High School are taught the key eight learning areas of the Australian Curriculum:
English, Mathematics, Science, Health and Physical Education, Humanities and Social Sciences, The Arts, Technologies and Languages.
Throughout the Senior years, students grow a greater sense of self-identity and an increased responsibility for their own learning. NWCS seeks to cater for all types of learners and offer a suite of opportunities for students to enhance their learning.
Alongside academic success, students are encouraged to have a growing awareness of their character and to seek to involve themselves in both serving and leadership experiences. Senior students show initiative in their learning, seek to extend themselves in their academic pursuits, and cultivate positive relationships with both peers and staff members.
NWCS offers ample extra curricular activities which enrich our students College experience, including local and overseas trips, serving at the canteen, peer mentoring of younger students and formal leadership positions.
Students have access to a range of technology options which enhance their learning. All students have access to the school's state of the art interactive TVs, as well as the school iPads and MacBook sets.
Staff recognise using technology is a highly valued skill that students need to acquire in preparing them for life beyond schooling.
