Manea Senior College (4179)

School Overview

Manea Senior College is the only school in the South West region dedicated to educating young people in Years 11 and 12. At Manea Senior College, your child will receive quality learning opportunities and life experiences to help them transition into the adult world.

Located in Bunbury (between Edith Cowan University and South Regional TAFE), your child will have access to facilities and resources across the precinct. They can combine their college programs with certificate level qualifications.

We operate under a young adult, work related environment, where relationships are built using a first name basis. Our college is one based upon a professional workplace culture, where positive and productive behaviours are acknowledged, valued and celebrated. Our purpose built facility has the feel of a university campus rather than a school which contributes to our vision of creating independent, respectful and motivated young adults.

We have an extensive range of courses and training qualifications for your child to select from - to complete in a mature, university-style, disruption-free, learning environment. We also offer an Approved Specialist Program in Health and Medical studies - a program that gives our students interested in this field a head start.

At Manea Senior College, we are helping your child create opportunities for their future. Year 11 in particular is a year of opportunity - a chance to explore what we have to offer and to determine pathways into Year 12 and beyond. This opportunity is extended to financial support for VET focused students to access nationally recognised training qualifications.

Our staff are important role models. This means:
- knowing everyone who attends our school
- using their extensive qualifications to create engaging learning programs
- providing opportunities for your child to grow and learn - academically, socially and emotionally.

Our staff have a flexible approach to their working hours, and continually participate in surveys and self-reflective practices to ensure they are providing the best learning opportunities for your child.
We recognise that your child's education is a partnership that requires input from you, the community and your child. Our staff are provided with the resources, support, environment and training to enable this to occur.

We adopt this same approach with your child. They are treated more like employees in that they have access to all parts of the college, its facilities, staff, tutors and equipment - everything they need to do the 'job' well. This means:
- completing ATAR and VET courses to the best of their ability
- actively participating in learning
- completing and submitting all work and tasks on time
- adhering to workplace expectations in terms of attendance, dress and workplace conduct
- seeking support and assistance when required.

Your child will also have to take part in performance review meetings, goal setting meetings and surveys to help them reach their goals. We coach, encourage and support your child to make pro-active adult choices, take ownership and responsibility for decision making and its affects their future.

Manea Senior College serves a special role in the South West, catering for students across the entire region, making us a truly regional College.
