SENIOR SCHOOL

Calvin’s Senior School provides students with opportunities to develop their individual gifts and talents in the context of an educational community striving to be faithful to God in all areas of life.

SENIOR SCHOOL

Year 10, 11 & 12

As students move into the senior years at Calvin Christian School and prepare for tertiary education, they are given an increasing choice in subject selection and are encouraged to take a more independent approach to organisation and learning.

Calvin endeavours to provide opportunities for students to develop their individual gifts, in the context of an educational community striving to be faithful to God in all areas of life.  Given the emphasis on formal qualifications in our society, Calvin recognises the importance of providing students with the opportunity, according to their abilities and vocational aspirations, to successful prepare for entry into Tertiary Institutions.

In past years Calvin senior students’ results in the Tasmanian Certificate of Education have been excellent. A high percentage of students each year are successful in gaining entry to University. Graduates of the school regularly appear on the University of Tasmania Dean’s Roll of Honour and can be found studying in a range of faculties including Medicine, Law, Arts, Engineering and Sciences. Top graduates have also gained entry to the Australian Defence Forces Academy in Canberra. Other students have been awarded various University Scholarships, only available to those who gain the very highest results.

Calvin senior students play an important role in the life of the whole school providing leadership and support for younger students. Senior students are encouraged to set and maintain an excellent example for younger students to emulate. Their involvement in the Peer Mentoring programme, ‘Building Bridges’ provides invaluable support for students in their first years in secondary school.

All Year 11 and 12 students participate in a study camp at the beginning of each year. This camp is designed to provide senior students with the opportunity to reflect deeply on aspects of Christian faith and how these are expressed in life.
