Junior secondary

Our Junior Secondary philosophy​ is based on the six guiding principles:


  • Distinct Identity
  • Parents and Community
  • Student Well-being
  • Local Decision Making
  • Leadership
  • Quality Teaching



Our goal is to prepare our young learners in a caring, positive atmosphere where they develop the academic and social skills needed to successfully transition to the Senior College. With teachers who understand what the adolescent learners need to be successful, our Junior Secondary students are able to thrive and reach their potential.

We have a Deputy Principal, Mrs Adams-Thompson, dedicated to Junior Secondary Schooling. Mrs Adams-Thompson previously worked as a "Flying Start" transition officer who assisted all North Queensland schools prepare for Year 7s entering high school. Ms Mindi Mewing is Head of Department for Junior Secondary and the Arts and is passionate about encouraging young learners to succeed.

Our Junior Secondary curriculum is designed to allow students to experience a range of subjects before making the defining subject selections into Year 10.
