SACE (South Australian Certificate of Education)

Students in Year 10, 11 and 12 complete their SACE by choosing stage 1 or 2 subjects or Vocational Education training (VET) options.

Subjects and training certificates can be delivered face-to-face, by the Open Access College or by another school via local delivery.

Many of our students complete their SACE by doing an Australian School Based Apprenticeship (ASBA) or Vocational Education and Training certificate (VET). Students complete an industry standard certificate training course credited towards their SACE completion, while also gaining valuable work experience with an employer as a paid apprentice.

Subject counselling ensures as far as possible, choices are individualised for student’s pathways.

Visit the SACE Board website for more information.

Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum

The Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum (KS:CPC) is required for all children and young people in our school. It’s taught each year by teachers who have completed a full-day KS:CPC training course.  

It teaches children to: 

  • recognise abuse and tell a trusted adult about it 
  • understand what touching is appropriate and inappropriate  
  • understand ways of keeping themselves safe. 

Visit Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum information for parents and carers for more information. 

Extracurricular and experiential learning

Wherever possible, we engage in activities that allow our students to connect with their local environment and better understand their place in the world. Incursions, excursions, collaboration with other schools and our community all contribute to the enrichment of our education program.
