It is an exciting time at St Paul’s College, as it explores the next generation learning opportunities for students.  

“We have a strong leadership team who work collaboratively with teachers, students and the wider community to blend research and practice with the possibilities of what could be for our students," Jessica Hannon, director of junior curriculum, said.

“We acknowledge that our students will be young adults of tomorrow in a world that will look very different and will require different skills, different capacities to contribute as an able citizen both locally and globally."

The broad curriculum on offer at St Paul’s is focused on skills-based learning, with particular attention to flexible learning environments, critical thinking, creativity and collaboration.

During the week, opportunities exist for residents to be involved in the out of school hours sporting and leisure activities. 

“Agriculture is another high-profile area of specialisation at the college,” principal Don Walkley said. 

“The Agricultural Studies curriculum at St Paul’s provides pathways for students who wish to equip themselves for a wide range of careers within the rural sector – whether working or managing a farm, accessing post-secondary training such as marketing, agronomy, veterinary science and agriculture research."
