The senior school is where NAC students grow into fine young men and women. Our teachers encourage our students to become critical thinkers, explore problems, express and argue their viewpoints, be creative and share their ideas. Our supportive and encouraging learning environment helps our students achieve their best and this is demonstrated through consistently strong performance in the HSC.
Students in Years 7-10 are encouraged to develop their skills through inquiry and are taught the study and research skills that are necessary for success in senior years. Our senior students can choose from a number of different pathways that are highly flexible. Several of our subjects are offered via e-Learning as well as traditional face-to-face classes. We also offer a varied selection of VET courses for those students wanting to gain Certificate II qualifications whilst still at school.
As a Christian school in the Anglican tradition, the development of character is central to our ethos and daily work. Through our Pastoral Care program, focus is given to positive peer relations, positive behaviours, resilience and restoration.
In our Senior School students have many opportunities to build skills in leadership and collaboration. This could be through the Student Leaders Forum, House activities, fund raising for charities, involvement in Chapel, or outdoor education. Our camps program seek to foster strong supportive relationships, providing our students with challenges in a safe and secure environment.
Students also have the opportunity to participate in many co-curricular and sporting activities. A wide range of clubs and activities take place throughout the week and students have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of sports. Representative sport is also available with several pathways to regional, state and national levels. Sporting tours have taken our teams to international destinations such as New Zealand, Singapore and Malaysia.
Those students with an interest in music and drama are encouraged to participate in one of our ensembles or bands. Our school is well known for producing Musicals of a very high standard. These have included Fiddler on the Roof, My Fair Lady, Annie and Oklahoma!
Service is a big part of student life at Nowra Anglican College. Students have the opportunity to contribute and organise events that support local, national and international charities. Students in Year 11 also have the opportunity to travel to Cambodia and Vietnam where they take part in community building activities that support the poorest members of those societies.
Gospel-shaped, confident, life-long learners who improve the world. This is our aim for the students in our care. I encourage you to talk to one of our staff today about partnering with us in your child’s education.
