With our Franciscan values overarching all that we do, our Learning and Teaching Framework will provide the professional platform for our learning approach and how it will be implemented within the college. Religion, literacy and numeracy are the foundations of each study pathway. We are presently developing a curriculum with a rich diversity of subject offerings, innovative use of technology and learning experiences that will cater for all pathways. Subjects will be delivered from exceptional physical spaces ensuring our students are given every opportunity for enriched learning while being challenged to thrive.
Sophia College has an eco-sciences precinct footprinted to complement the college's learning spaces. Specialist areas have been designed for sciences, technology and design, the arts, languages (Japanese), music and mathematics. We will aim to challenge and equip our students with science, technology, engineering, art and mathematical (STEAM) skills to solve authentic problems for the complex world around them – a world which requires a workforce of the future with high levels of skills and responsible and creative thinkers.
With flexible teaching modes, combining digital technology, design and art, our students will be able to work on projects individually or in groups researching, designing, planning, creating and implementing solutions. The integration of learnings through interdisciplinary projects and units is achievable through the best use of the overall site whose dams, for example, could be used for mathematical and scientific testing, whose food production could be used for analysis, sale and business modelling.
