Faith | Excellence | Community | Compassion


Christian Brothers College, as a college which specialises in the education of boys, provides a rich and diverse curriculum catering for the varied interests of our students. CBC’s inner-city location provides a contemporary learning environment with access to a multitude of learning opportunities in the community. Our commitment to student and teacher access to technology has seen information and communication technologies incorporated across all learning areas and classrooms.

SACSA currently provides the framework for subjects in the Junior School (Reception to Year 6), Middle School (Year 7 to Year 9), and Year 10 (Senior School), with the exception of the SACE Stage 1 Personal Learning Plan subject which is undertaken by students in Year 10. Implementation of the Australian Curriculum has begun, with the first four subjects (English, History, Mathematics and Science) to be fully implemented for Reception to Year 9 by Semester 2 of 2013.

The main objectives of the Junior and Middle School curriculums are:

  • To develop high standards of literacy, comprehension and numeracy
  • To develop organisational skills
  • To develop critical and creative higher-order thinking skills
  • To provide opportunities for student-centred and enquiry-orientated learning
  • To develop cooperative learning skills
  • To incorporate technology into the curriculum as an important learning tool
  • To provide for integrated learning across the curriculum
  • To meet the specific needs of individual students by providing specific learning programmes and catering for student’s different learning styles
  • To provide learning experiences across all areas of the curriculum in preparation for selection of study pathways in the Senior School

Subjects at Year 11 and 12 (Stage 1 and 2) are developed in accordance with the requirements of the SACE Board. The Senior School focuses on students ‘building on their strengths’ by choosing a path of study which is linked to their own interests and provides the best opportunity for individual success and SACE completion. Students can also take advantage of Vocation Education and Training (VET) offerings to earn SACE credits and possible TAFE competencies whilst participating in real life workplace learning.

The following documents provide further information regarding the overview of the CBC Curriculum and specific information regarding subject offerings in the Senior School.
