New College Structure, Educational Plan and Buildings Master Plan
Padua College is undergoing a significant re-structure to better meet the future educational challenges and needs of its students according to the current College Educational Strategic Plan.
With student engagement the key priority, the College is increasing its curriculum offerings by re-structuring its campuses and constructing a Year 10-12 contemporary learning centre with collaborative learning spaces.
Stage One of the Buildings Master Plan commenced in 2017 with preparations for the construction of the Senior Learning Centre. This is due to be completed in 2018 and will accommodate the Year 10-12 Senior Program from 2019. Our Year 10 students will have the opportunity to complete a three-year VCE or three-year VCAL Program, with far more options to accelerate learning in their area of interest.
The College is working towards delivering Year 7 and 8 Integrated Learning Program in 2017 with a focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, English, Arts and Maths) to encourage independent and engaged learning through problem solving and enquiry-based learning. These skills will be further developed with the new Aspire9 Program, which is to be launched in 2018 and aims to build on the self-efficacy of our Year 9 students with greater opportunities for leadership.
These developments are designed to ensure that Padua College provides a comprehensive and inclusive curriculum, characterised by excellent teaching that encourages every student to fulfil their potential.
