Senior School students are encouraged to develop their skills through inquiry and are taught the study and research skills that are necessary for success in senior years.
“Gospel-shaped, confident, life-long learners who improve the world.”
This is our aim for the students in our care. We would love to partner with you in your child's education.
The senior school is where NAC students grow into fine young men and women. Our teachers encourage our students to become critical thinkers, exploring problems, expressing and arguing their viewpoints. As well, they encourage them to be creative and share their ideas. Our supportive and encouraging learning environment helps our students achieve their best results that are demonstrated through consistently strong performances in the HSC.
As a Christian school in the Anglican tradition, the development of character is central to our ethos and daily work. Through our Wellbeing and Building Learning Power 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 our Leadership opportunities, House activities, fundraising for charities, involvement in Chapel, or outdoor education. Our camp program seeks to foster strong supportive relationships and provide 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, Oklahoma!, Hairspray, Beauty and the Beast and Les Misérables.
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 10 and Year 11 also have the opportunity to participate in National and International mission trips where they take part in community-building activities that support the poorest members of those societies.
