Girls make the transition to Middle School when they move into Year 7. By the time they have entered Year 8, they will have laid down strong foundations for future learning and begun to make some subject choices of their own. The years of middle schooling, Years 7 to 9, are especially important since they are years of fundamental change during which attitudes to self and others are further established. These attitudes will form part of a girl's world view.
Our aim is to develop confident, independent, resilient young women able to respect others and work collaboratively with them. To achieve this aim it is vital that girls see themselves as having overcome challenges to be successful in a variety of endeavours. Girls in the Middle School demonstrate several stages and degrees of personal and social development. Our task is to extend their skills and abilities and to challenge them to examine their own attitudes and values.
Co-curricular activities provide girls with opportunities to increase their confidence, broaden their friendships and develop leadership skills. These activities include the Student Representative Council, music ensembles, committees, clubs and sports.
The Thinking and Learning Curriculum, which is part of every girl's program, assists in the development of higher order thinking skills and the ability to interrogate and evaluate information. Girls work collaboratively and cooperatively and are encouraged to strive for their personal best in their study and in the many other activities available to them.
