New College Structure, Educational Plan and Buildings Master Plan
Padua College is undergoing significant changes to better meet the future educational challenges and needs of its students.
With student engagement the key priority, the College has increased 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 and the new Whyte Senior Learning Centre has been built to accommodate the Year 10-12 Senior Program. Our Year 10 students now 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 introduction of a Year 7 and 8 Integrated Learning Program with a focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) is designed to encourage independent and engaged learning through problem solving and enquiry-based learning. These skills are further developed by our new Aspire9 Program, launched in 2018, which delivers a diverse range of learning experiences that build on the self-efficacy of our Year 9 students.
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.
