Our Children’s Centre provides a learning environment where the natural curiosity and wonder of young children is encouraged and enhanced by skilful guidance from our professional team. Learning opportunities and experiences are designed to support the delivery of quality programs at all levels including developing children’s confidence in their abilities, resourcefulness and resilience.
A strong culture for success in the Junior School is reflected by the attitude encouraged by our staff to challenge our students to do their personal best with every opportunity. The core academic priorities of Literacy and Numeracy are presented in a manner that celebrates understanding, exploration and skill development and fosters areas of personal interest and growth. A variety of strategies are used to ensure that all student learning needs are catered for, from additional learning support through to intellectual stretch. Students engage with the Australian Curriculum and access specialist subjects including Music, PE, Art, Drama, Japanese and Technology, and have access to many additional facilities at the College.
The Middle School is a unique period of student growth and development. Ocean View College delivers a rich and diverse middle school program designed to extend students’ academic skills, ability to collaborate, innovate and solve problems, promote personal development, and encourage attitudes of responsible citizenship. Year 8 students begin to negotiate aspects of their individual study program through “electives” to complement their study in the core curriculum.
As students enter Senior Schooling at Ocean View College they begin to focus their generalist subjects into specialist pathways. This is an extremely important stage in schooling as it is a time when students need to prepare for life after college; whether that is full time employment, tertiary education or vocational pathways. The college offers courses in SACE Stage 1 and 2 with increasing opportunities to specialise and individualise their programs with ongoing developments in Vocational Education (VET) and online learning options. Our Senior Study Centre offers outstanding opportunities of choice in study facilities and fosters independent learning and personal organisation skills.
