Middle School - Navigate

Years 5 - 8 Lighthouse Christian College aims to provide an engaging and joyful experience of schooling which is specifically suited to the developmental needs of students in Years Five, Six, Seven and Eight. This experience of schooling encompasses not only the formal curriculum structured around the key learning areas of Christian Studies, English, Mathematics, Science, Studies of Society and the Environment, Technology, the Arts, and Health and Physical Education, but also addresses the social, emotional, physical and spiritual development of students through activities and programs within and outside the classroom. A range of co curricular activities are arranged throughout the year in the form of camps, excursions, sporting activities, concerts and many others. Since 2010 a special Year 9 program has included a City Experience. Based on sound academic research in both education, psychology and pedagogical practices, our approaches in the Middle School aim to meet the needs of young adolescent students. Our approach in Pastoral Care and Discipline is to encourage students’ personal development and the development of self-discipline through building strong, supportive relationships between students, and between students and their teachers. Students are taught in a caring Christian environment that encourages students to develop a relationship with God and to place their faith and trust in Him. Lighthouse’s Christian College Middle School has a number of aspects that make it unique from other colleges. • Small classes • Strong Pastoral emphasis • Christian curriculum woven throughout each subject • Emphasis on the whole student • A sense of belonging • Strong relationships between teachers and students. • Students are involved in making decisions about the curriculum content. • Learning and teaching practices that are active, challenging and thought    provoking • An enthusiasm for learning is fostered • Each student is encouraged to realise their academic potential.
