Learning and teaching

The educational activities of the College are designed to provide opportunities for all student to achieve their maximum development intellectually, spiritually, socially and physically. Henderson College is committed to creating a culture of learning for the 21st Century that inspires and equips students to be young people known for their confidence, capability, creativity, critical thinking, compassion, courage, collaboration, and commitment. We consider that these qualities and abilities can only be fully realised as they have Jesus Christ transform their lives, becoming increasingly Christlike.

Growing and nurtured throughout their school years

In the early years, we focus on self-discovery. In the middle years, our learning program gives students practical and engaging experiences to explore and apply their new-found knowledge. As children grow physically, emotionally, socially, spiritually and academically, they develop confidence and are prepared for the transition into secondary school. In the secondary years, students develop a sense of identity, their faith and a sense of personal responsibility towards others. They do this while striving for excellence in their academic studies.

Curriculum

The Australian Curriculum, the Encounter Bible Curriculum, and the Keeping Safe Wellbeing Curriculum are used by our College for all subject areas, from Foundation through to Year 10.
