ST LEONARD?S COLLEGE
Independent Uniting Church coeducational Early Learning to Year 12.
St Leonard?s College offers all students ?a chance to be? ? a chance to be the best they can be and a chance to be themselves.
While our focus is on the fundamentals, the personal development of students is equally important and our state-of-the-art facilities cater to a wide range of interests. Our coeducational environment is the result of a deep understanding of the subtle balance between genders, individuals and groups. Students learn and interact in a way that truly reflects the wider community. St Leonard?s College students finish school confident and socially able to take on the challenges of university, life and work.
Our state-of-the-art facilities include well-resourced libraries, music and art centres, multi-purpose halls and sporting facilities such as the Hawkes Sports Centre with pool, aerobics room and weights room. We also have a new Upper School building with leading technologies and resources to help students achieve in their senior years and a dedicated outdoor environmental centre, Camp Ibis, located on the Gippsland Lakes.
A broad academic curriculum is offered across all age groups. At senior level, students can choose to complete the VCE or International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Subjects available include mathematics, science, LOTE (French, Japanese, Indonesian, German and Spanish), English, music, information and communications technology, and a wide range of humanities, social science and commerce subjects. The College is also accredited to offer the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme.
The majority of traditional sports and outdoor activities are available at St Leonard?s College along with skiing, snowboarding, surfing, equestrian, sailing, golf and surf lifesaving. The College takes part in mid-week, inter-school sports competitions through the Association of Coeducational Schools, leaving weekends free for family activities, other events and local community sports teams.
St Leonard?s College offers a diverse range of extra-curricular activities including debating, drama, choir, orchestra, photography, video production and bushwalking. Visual and performing arts activities are always highlights of the College calendar.
