The College is extremely proud of our Senior School students. Whether they began their journey in Kindergarten or joined us along the way, the contribution they make to our College is significant. We look for our Senior students to be role models, to help set a tone and culture of care, respect and putting others first, excited about their futures.

We believe that it is this environment and culture that leads to the development of strong academic and personal characters of integrity, growing each individual into the person that God has gifted them to be.
 

Senior School is a time when academic outcomes form a major part of our students’ lives and that of their families. We are committed to supporting each individual child in a balance of academic strength, emotional care and nurturing and a preparation for their continued journey into life.

 

MEET THE HEAD OF SENIOR SCHOOL

As Head of Senior School Catherine Clarke works with a team to care for all students from Years 9 to 12 - academically, socially, physically, and spiritually. The staff’s willingness to build strong engagement with students encourages effective learning and growth that is a defining part of our Senior School culture.

Our staff consider it a privilege to be part of these young adults’ lives. We recognise the inspiration that staff can and should be to students. We also recognise what an inspiration our students are to our staff.

"It is our desire that when a student leaves Wagga Wagga Christian College they are confident in who they are, knowing their strengths and weaknesses, with a the wisdom to approach the workforce, prepared to make right decisions in all the different parts of life ahead in service to the Lord."

Ms Catherine Clarke, Head of Senior School

Our Senior School

curriculum

Across the four years of Senior School students have the opportunity to select a range of subjects which support and grow their gifts and areas of interest. Subject choices are not limited to onsite learning and often include Vocational Education and Training Courses, Distance Education courses and Life Skills courses.

 
 

"With all the different messages that a world throws at our children, the message of hope, and a life of service will be at the heart of what the College seeks for all our students."

Mr Phillip Wilson, Principal

 

Our Senior School

actively supports and mentors students

Student mentoring is a strategic program designed to help students work through some of the challenges of the last part of their school journey. Students highly value this opt-in student-driven process where, together with teachers they can set goals, make plans and work through potential stress points.

GROWS LEADERSHIP

The Student Leadership program engages students across the College community. The College is committed to raising a generation of young people who are willing to make the sacrifices needed to take on responsibility and leadership roles. We want to see leadership grown and developed in students so it becomes an instinctive opportunity to serve.

"We have had a confidence in the teaching staff, that they had genuine care for our child, they had a deep understanding of his abilities, strengths and weaknesses and were willing to put themselves out in time, energy and emotion to enable him to reach his goals."

College Parent, Year 11 Student

Opportunities to Excel

At the College students benefit from shared resources, facilities and speciality teachers from Preschool to Year 12. The consistency this provides in teaching and learning across speciality subject areas helps nurture a child's natural ability in areas that interest them.

agriculture

Within agriculture, students gain exposure to a wide variety of experiences including horticulture and working with poultry, sheep and cattle. Students learn to work collaboratively, problem- solve and take part in practical competitions and events which grow their understanding and skills of the agricultural industry.

"I seek for each student to know how highly God values them, whilst also keeping them accountable to the goals they aspire to achieve. We all need someone to listen to us, and I am blessed to be able to share the wisdom of many years of teaching, and living, with our Senior students."

Mrs Belinda Everingham, Senior Teacher

EASE OF Transition

As students leave WWCC, whether pursuing a practical vocation or undertaking further study, they are confident in who they are, knowing their strengths and weaknesses, with the wisdom to approach the workforce, prepared to make right decisions in all the different parts of life ahead in service to the Lord. From Year 9 to 12, students participate in fortnightly meetings as a year group and discuss pathways post their secondary schooling, find support in the practical development of resumes and basic work skills, a growth in their understanding of work place safety and the rights and responsibility of an employee. Students are exposed to many tertiary study pathways resulting from attendance at University and TAFE open days and expos. Work experience is encouraged and post school, the majority of College students successfully find work or study opportunities in the field of their choice.
