In great news for parents of boys, De La Salle Catholic College Caringbah is now taking enrolments for Year 11 and 12.
Previously catering to Year 7-10 boys only, the distinguished Catholic college will remain a specialist school for boys but will now accept students sitting their HSC, ensuring a smooth transition through their senior years of schooling. To prepare for this, the college will be refurbished and students will have access to HSC specialist teachers.
In addition, De La Salle Catholic College will introduce the HSC Enrichment Program, a highly unique and individualised Year 11 and 12 student experience.
Under the HSC Enrichment Program, boys will learn how to achieve academically, manage their wellbeing and grow their support network, arming them with the tools necessary to take advantage of a post-secondary world of choices and opportunities. Designed to offer dedicated and bespoke support, the highly personalised program includes three streams; Focused Wellbeing, Academic Mentoring and Supportive Connection.
The program is designed to filter out distractions and create a supportive, stress-managed environment to make the final two years of secondary school not only personally rewarding but a memorable and enriching experience.
The shake-up has been provided in response to growing demand from local families and is part of a wider Sydney Catholic Schools expansion program underway in the Sutherland Shire.
Girls will receive the same opportunity to extend their learning at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic College Burraneer which is also now taking enrolments for Year 11 and 12. Meanwhile, co-ed college De La Salle Cronulla (soon to be called St Aloysius College) will be transformed into a Year 7-12 secondary school, fully operational by 2027.
Together, the three schools will create a new educational precinct in the heart of the Sutherland Shire benefitting from state-of-the-art facilities, new subject offerings and second-to-none teaching expertise.
De La Salle Catholic College Caringbah aims to develop strong minds and gentle hearts, guided by the school motto to ‘Strive. Serve. Succeed.’ Relationships between teachers and students are fair, supportive and collaborative, allowing students to have a sense of ownership over their learning and school environment.
