Learning & Teaching



An extensive range of co-curricular subjects, programs and activities is provided to support and expand the central academic curriculum, to enhance learning and to allow students to experience diversity, creating interest and motivation.

We value all students equally. We work towards providing learning experiences and deliberations relevant to their age, gender, interests, stages of personal development and in response to the challenges students may encounter in adolescent life.

Our programs affirm students, acknowledge their gifts and talents and cater for the diversity of ways in which they learn.

Overnight activities include camps in Years 7 & 9 and the R.E Retreat in Year 11. Spirituality Days and Student Wellbeing Days are held for every year level. The LOTE trip to Italy is scheduled every two years with the sister school in Italy visiting Kolbe in the alternative year.

Examples of other opportunities include:
– thematic subject weeks (e.g. LOTE, Forensic Science, Health)
– subject based and year level excursions
– visiting speakers
– lunchtime activities
– clubs for drama, sports, arts, homework
– choir
– academic competitions
– displays, exhibitions.

Participation in community service is scheduled in Years 10 & 11.
