Learning

Our caring team of dedicated educators work with each student to foster personal excellence and resilience, preparing each individual for the next step in their educational journey.


Our Approach

We believe the way to educate students for their future cannot be based on the way we were dictated to in our past. Our approach to teaching and learning in the Middle School, aims to challenge and develop students who…

  • have the right to be individuals and to choose their own learning paths
  • are passionate, creative and inquisitive individuals who are ‘masters of their own learning’
  • are excited about coming to school. Every. Single. Day.
  • are compassionate people who work with local and global communities to solve problems and make a difference which helps them to develop empathy and understand their place in the world.

Using the Australian Curriculum, our inquiry based approach encourages students to look at the world from a different perspective, explore a range of opportunities and subject areas, freedom in choice… and in doing so ‘find their spark’.

For further information about the diverse range of subjects on offer at our Middle & Senior Campus, please download the Curriculum Handbook.

Introduction of the International Baccalaureate Methodology

At the beginning of 2020 Faith commenced delivering curricula to our Year 7s following  the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IBOMYP). We are a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) and are pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

The IB philosophy, which we share is —a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.

The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. The MYP program encourages students to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

As a Candidate School we will work through the Middle Years Program with the aim to deliver the MYP from Year 7 – Year 9 by 2022. We are excited to deliver learning in a way that develops international minded, generous, principled individuals.

In 2020, Year 8 and Year 9 students are receiving the ACARA Curricula. All our Middle School students also complete Math Pathways, an innovative and individualised program linked to the Australian Curriculum.
