Schooling at Brighton Secondary College begins with students who are eager to learn, and staff who are passionate about facilitating their quest.
We offer innovative educational pathways that are designed to embrace academic progress, and build resilient, confident young adults, who will enter society equipped with a broad range of skills.
Programs in Years 7-9 are aimed to teach our students self assurance and self esteem whilst developing emerging leadership skills.
Transition to Secondary Schooling
We start the year with a Year 7 Orientation camp to Anglesea. It gives students the chance to adjust to a new environment and form friendships with their new companions. Year 7 teachers get to know their students in a more relaxed and less structured environment.
Our School, Transition And Resilience Training (START) program, held in semester 1, provides students with strategies to build belonging and promote wellbeing and resilience.
For parents our Insider Parent Participation Program provides “inside information” and knowledge to best support your child educationally at home. Three sessions, held on Saturday mornings in term one, cover Homework, Research Skills, Literacy, Numeracy, Computer Technology and Cyber bullying.
These activities are conducted during the first three weeks of term one so that our Year 7 students are settled quickly into their new environment.
In Year 8, students have the opportunity to train as Peer Helpers to work with some of the Year 7 students who would benefit from additional support from caring peers.
Our Year 10/11 Peer Support Leaders actively support the Year 7 students by attending the Orientation camp and working with staff members on the START program.
