Starting school is the first little step into your child’s big future. If you are thinking of enrolling your child into primary school next year, principal Rosa Marchionda says Laverton P-12 College is the perfect setting.
“Our college is unique in that it offers your child a seamless journey from the start of their schooling experience, through to the completion of their secondary education,” Ms Marchionda says.
The college’s primary curriculum focuses on developing the knowledge and skills children will need for life-long learning. Teaching and learning programs have a strong focus on the essential understandings within literacy and numeracy, but also provide inquiry investigations into the humanities, science, art, music and physical education. This supports children to learn, engage and explore the world around them as they progress through their primary years of schooling.
“We encourage student voice in regards to pathways and we allow all our students to be active participants in their learning. Our curriculum is structured to offer just the right amount of challenge, where students are encouraged to take risks, step out of their comfort zones and to work toward enhancing their learning skills and knowledge.
“Within your child’s senior academic years, we are fortunate to have the facilities at Laverton P-12 College to provide access to a range of pathways from VET, school-based apprenticeship programs, VCAL and VCE learning.
“We work collaboratively in teams to meet the specific needs of your child … Our Wellbeing team is comprehensive and we have a proud tradition of providing students with opportunities to meet their academic needs as well as their wellbeing and cultural needs.
“Approximately, one quarter of our students are from our Karen community, or other refugee backgrounds and our multicultural education system is supported by our specialist classroom Multicultural Education Aides.
“Our values of Succeeding, Belonging and Learning underpin all that we do.”
