The Secondary years are an important transition from the formative years and maximize student ambitions and academic choice as they progress through to independence and adulthood. Students are encouraged to set realistic goals and to aspire to personal excellence in their studies. Implementing the Australian Curriculum helps to create confident communicators, imaginative thinkers and informed citizens.
GBC endeavours to provide a Christ-centred, Biblical perspective on education which is relevant and applicable to daily life. Our students are learning to see the world around us from a Christian perspective through interactive and vibrant learning opportunities.
Students study a prescribed program, which will generally include English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Social Sciences, Health, Physical Education and Christian Education.
Complementing this prescribed program are the College’s range of Arts, Technologies and Physical Education subjects. Students in Year 7 and 8 enjoy learning from two of each of the semester long Arts and Technologies courses, whilst students in Year 9 and 10 take on a year long major elective and either a year long or two semester based minor electives. The Year 10 students also have the choice of completing two units of Work Place Learning throughout the year in lieu of the minor elective.
