Welcome to Southern River College.
Southern River College is embarking on a new educational journey that focuses on improving outcomes and pathways for our students. Our education plan has been mapped to the needs of our students. Our focus is on making real opportunities for our students to excel as they find their way from primary to secondary and into their career aspirations. The focal point for re-profiling is on:
- improving curriculum and pathways
- literacy and numeracy
- teaching and learning in the 21st Century
- school profile
Southern River College is working towards offering focus programs in Academic studies, Music, Netball, Soccer, and Water Sports. Associated to this will be our curriculum pathway model that engages the student in pathways and careers programs leading the way to Southern River College being the first Minerals and Energy Academy in WA.
The staff, students and parent body support vision of the college and directions we are heading in. Flexibility of delivery is the key to Southern River College’s ability to aid students in achieving their post school destination. Southern River College is rich in how we can make a difference through a dynamic curriculum that is flexible, innovative and creative.
Through greater flexibility Southern River College will be able to achieve our vision and empower the college community to be far more responsive to the diverse requirements of our students. The ability to find local solutions is seen as one of the most exciting possibilities for our school plan.
The targeted school plan 2011 - 2014 was developed in collaboration with staff, students and parents and the wider industry community and endorsed by the school council, P&C. This was done in conjunction with examination of data to highlight areas of need for future directions of the college. The leadership of the school is strong and shared. The long term vision and targets for improvement are clearly communicated to the whole community through our school planning strategies. We have recognised our issues and the needs of our college and are embracing them as an opportunity for improved outcomes. This is aligned to the learning area plans, performance management and targets set by the college’s priority teams, ensure that everyone is aware and focused on the college’s long and short term directions.
At Southern River College our focus is on every child and their success through quality educational programs and pathways.
