Welcome to Senior School

These Senior Years of College are important, vibrant years where our students from Year 10 become young adults by the end of Year 12. We are beginning to ask and expect of our students greater responsibility for themselves and for their College. We seek for our students to develop the maturity needed to become independent learners and thoughtful, caring young people who will share their lives with those around them.

These two years should be enjoyable. We offer a large range of activities, sports, clubs, performances, music groups, production and other opportunities to ensure that there is something for everyone. The key to enjoying one's time at St Brendan-Shaw College is involvement.

During these two years you will be preparing for tertiary study or the world of work. The teachers are here to help you by providing a secure, friendly learning environment that will encourage you to become a confident and self-directed learner. You will be supported and nurtured to help you achieve the best results of which you are capable. You will be expected to be responsible for your actions and your study habits. Remember that your education is a collaborative team effort between students, parents and staff at the College.

With all these things in place I know that your time at St Brendan-Shaw College will be both productive and enjoyable.

I wish each of you success. We strive to do our best, welcome diversity and be safe in all of your undertakings.

Counsellors

Year 11 and 12 can be a difficult time and sometimes you might notice either you or one of your friends are struggling. Sometimes the struggles can be school-based (e.g. finding you are behind in work) or based outside of school (e.g. a break-up in your family or other relationships), or sometimes the struggles are because of feelings of depression or anxiety. Don't leave things too late. Speak to people sooner rather than later. Our experienced College Counsellors are here to help you work through any difficulties you or your friends might be having. To see them, just make an appointment through the Caritas Office.

Our Counsellors can also give you information on what supports are available from other agencies such as Centrelink.
