Preparation for life beyond secondary school is a key focus in the Senior School, starting in 2022 at Carmichael College.

This preparation incorporates two aspects: the pastoral pathway encouraging resilience, independence and social awareness, and the individual academic pathway promoting excellence in education. Our aim is for our students to leave Carmichael College feeling confident to face the future with hope and optimism. To this end, we challenge and support every individual student and develop their skills and abilities, helping them to achieve their maximum potential. We recognise the uniqueness of our Senior School learners and provide opportunities for them to learn and develop as valued individuals.

This is achieved through meaningful relationships, relevant curriculum and learning opportunities, and a sense of purpose in a supportive Christian School community.

We strive to develop in students a deep understanding and appreciation for the world around them to enable them to graduate as educated, independent, creative, and resilient problem solvers, ready for life in the world and eternity.

Excellent Education

We believe excellent education occurs when the environment the students are learning in is supportive but challenging, relational and respectful, visible and explicit and where students can exceed their own expectations.

Our pedagogical approach, based on a “Reading to Learn” framework, ensures that learning is made explicit for all students, and learning intentions are clear. There are opportunities for practice and re-learning and feedback is welcomed. A classroom that is successful is a classroom where mistakes can be made as a process of learning and where students can feel safe to do so.

Intentional Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care encompasses emotional support, behaviour management and structured curriculum time for social and spiritual development and service.

Pastoral Care is central to the ethos of Carmichael College. Based on the Gospel of God’s unconditional love in Christ, it permeates all aspects of school life and builds genuine community. Pastoral Programs at Carmichael College include, but are not limited to the College Devotional Program (Prep – 6), Behaviour Management Plan, Restorative Justice Process, Bullying Management, Critical Incident Management, and our “My Life Rulz” Program.
