Senior School (Years 10 – 12)
We recognise that by the time students reach Senior School they are approaching young adulthood and have changing needs. By this time they are ready to take more responsibility for their own learning, to use initiative and to work independently. Senior School students are stretched, in order to build on their potential, and are challenged by endless learning possibilities.
At Cornerstone, we offer an extensive range of subjects in the Senior School, allowing students to achieve their goals and reach their desired career pathway. The wide variety of subjects provide the required background for entrance to university and TAFE study, pathways into apprenticeships and traineeships, as well as directly into employment. Our students are encouraged to reach for their dreams and to take on challenges in their study and life.
We outwork the sentiment of United States author and physician Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809 – 1894) – “Man’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions”. We understand that by encouraging our students to embrace challenges, be intrigued by mistakes and relish effort, they develop into lifelong learners. As our senior students move to greater independence and responsibility for their learning, they foster with their teachers a relationship built on trust, respect and collaboration.
