- Student Life
Year 12 presents the opportunity for students to select subjects that align with their passions, strengths and preferred post-school pathway.
While all students are encouraged to work hard, the College supports students to learn how to have a balanced approach to school and life. We want young people ready to successfully take their place in the world, whether they are headed for university, further education, training, an apprenticeship or joining the workforce.
Throughout their Woodcroft College journey, students will learn the value of positive relationships with their peers and teachers. This comes to the fore in Year 12 and each year we see our students form a cohesive group who encourage and support each other.
Students are also supported by the same Head of Year throughout Year 11 and Year 12 as we understand the importance of strong and stable relationships with key academic and support staff over this period.
With their own exclusive space known as The Croft, students have easy access to their Head of Year, quiet study areas, their own kitchen and a place to take some time out.
We want our students to share positive experiences that will support them through their study. Events such as launch day, reflection day, formal and graduation celebrations are highlights on the Year 12 calendar. Every year the group of Year 12 students come up with an individual motto and mural to inspire and encourage each other.
Year 12 students will complete their Stage 2 SACE and the subjects selected should reflect individual interests while providing variety and appropriate level of challenge to prepare for a chosen post school pathway.
Students have multiple subject choices across a range of key learning areas:
Further learning and growth opportunities occur outside the classroom through leadership responsibilities, a broad range of extra-curricular clubs and activities, an extensive sports program and performing art opportunities.
Year 11 and Year 12 students are offered study support through Focused Study lessons each week and have access to teachers outside the classroom to improve understanding of course work.
Student wellbeing is a key focus at Woodcroft College along with development of strong character and values based behaviour. Along with dedicated pastoral care lessons, personal counselling is available.
Students will have three lessons each week allocated to the Pastoral Care Program.
Students will participate in Worship and Year Level assemblies along with continuing a structured Personal Development Program.
The Head of Year 12, Tutors and guest presenters will deliver a program to support ongoing personal development and provide strategies to support students through their final year.
The program covers topics such as:
