Mindarie Senior College (4171)

School Overview

Mindarie Senior College is a purpose built senior college designed to meet the educational needs of young adults completing Years 11 and 12.

At Mindarie Senior College, your child will learn in a safe, inclusive environment that is supported by a mentoring program, and academic support strategies and monitoring, to ensure they achieve their personal best.

We provide a comprehensive education with pathways leading to attainment of an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR), Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications or future employment. Our broad curriculum ensures your child can pursue their passions, which will engage and motivate them to be productive, independent learners.

We operate on extended hours so your child will have free time to experience learning through structured work placement, training providers and other community organisations. It also allows them to attend tuition sessions with staff and guest presenters, practice performances and consolidate work.

Our culture is based on mutual respect and trust. The relationship between teachers, support staff and students reflects a more mature approach where we focus on the whole individual - developing them academically while also nurturing their wellbeing.

Our college is characterised by our Young Adult Ethos which fosters independence in learning and wellbeing:

1. Pursuing Personal Excellence by:
setting high expectations and meaningful goals
persevering when faced with challenges and building resilience
accessing help and support.
2. Building Positive Relationships by:
promoting mutual respect and trust
engaging in teamwork and cooperative learning
contributing to a productive learning environment.
3. Demonstrating Social Responsibility by:
behaving ethically
recognising and supporting the needs of others
contributing to a sustainable community.

Our goal is to ensure your child becomes an independent member of society - personally, academically and socially - as they prepare for the next stage of their lives. As a mature young adult, your child will have the opportunity to establish and maintain complex and supportive relationships with their peers and members of the school community. They will begin to appreciate and accept responsibility for the choices they make.

We welcome parent and community contributions to college life - both on a formal and informal basis. Our College Board has notable representations from community members, with specific backgrounds and roles that provide support to our teachers and staff, our students and parents.
