Mindarie Senior College caters to the needs of our young adult learners so that they can take the next important steps in their life. Our primary goal is to move students to increasing independence where they understand, appreciate and accept responsibility for the choices they make and in doing so, make the most of their opportunities. As mature young adults, our students will be able to develop the ability to establish and maintain complex and supportive relationships within a network of friends and supporters.
Our culture is mutual respect and trust. The relationship between staff and students reflects a more mature approach as would be expected in a college catering for young adults. Staff are committed to helping students develop their self-esteem and to supporting individuals to strive for their personal best.
The College operates on extended hours, up to 4.15pm on two days per week. This allows the College to timetable the normal classes over four days with Wednesday being timetable free. This allows a number of students, as part of their studies, to experience learning through structured-work-placement, Training Providers and other community organisations.
Students have the opportunity to learn in a modern and exciting facility that enhances the establishment of a young adult environment.
