At Padua College, our curriculum reflects our core values. To welcome and affirm, the syllabus aligns with the House system to build positive relationships as a basis for the students’ six-year journey through the College.
All Year 7 and 8 students undertake a common, integrated curriculum that provides a strong foundation, a love of learning and a sample of the array of subjects offered in the subsequent years of schooling.
In addition, to scaffold the higher-order and critical thinking skills built through the primary school model, all students participate in the STEAM Cup (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths).
