Students examine a wide range of topics from areas such as drug education, sexual education, nutrition, personal values, bullying, goals and aspirations, driver education, harm minimisation and resilience training.

Students also have the option of studying St John Ambulance First Aid units which are used as a valuable resource at many different events in the community.

Outdoor Education

Students have the option of studying Outdoor Education as a subject at the senior levels. Comprising a theoretical and practical component, the course at Year 10 provides a detailed analysis of our recreation, impact and the implications on the local and broader environment. This unit leads into VCE Outdoor Education as a subject which has proven to be a very popular option with students.
