In a world of technological and moral turbulence, it is a challenge to keep abreast with the changes. It is our vision at Sirius College to guide and support students not only to cope with these changes but to harness them. At Sirius College we welcome students from all ethnic and religious backgrounds. We are committed to the formation of a non-denominational school where we believe that the most important aspect of a school is its humanity. We educate our students in a thriving environment of serenity and care and encourage appreciation and respect towards all living things.
Our focus at Sirius College is our students. We endeavour to provide a balanced education that encompasses ‘academic excellence’ on the one hand, and ‘moral and ethical values’ on the other. As such, our students can soar through this challenging journey of Life with the benefit of two wings. Our balanced education is achieved by our staff who are not only dedicated to our students academic excellence but who also present themselves as role models.
Our primary school students learn in an environment that provides a strong foundation for their middle and senior years. Students are encouraged to think independently and to acquire critical thinking abilities. The students’ creativity and individuality are recognised as important factors which help children reach their potential.
Sirius College fosters learning via the eight learning areas of the Australian National Curriculum:
English, Mathematics, Science, Health and Physical Education, Humanities and Social Sciences, The Arts, Technologies and Languages.
Sirius College strives to nurture the well-being of students. We have adopted some special programs to develop positive social and emotional individuals who are engaged in their own learning.
The programs also promote social skills and values such as confidence, persistence, harmonious relationships with others, organisation and resilience.
In some of our primary school campuses, Arts, Languages, Religion and Values, Health and PE are taught by specialised subject teachers.
Students’ academic progress is closely monitored and communicated to parents via online platforms to make sure that everyone is on the same page to maximise the potential of the students while keeping the balance to “let the kids be kids”.
Foundation students are partnered with an upper primary student at the beginning of the year to help develop a sense of community.
The Better Buddies program encourages younger children to feel safe on the school grounds while also giving a sense of responsibility to older children.
In keeping with our learning principles, we are committed to providing a diverse and inclusive program so that all students within the college have opportunities to experiment and shine in areas of their choice. Our extra-curricular activities have the capacity to engage, challenge and enhance the student’s learning experiences.
