Geelong College’s commitment to innovation in learning in a caring environment is seeing the co-educational day and boarding school from early learning to Year 12 go from strength to strength.
With wait lists at Prep, Years 6, 7 and 8 for 2018, principal Peter Miller is encouraging families to plan ahead.
“The Geelong area is seeing unprecedented growth and the demand for places across the college will be greater than what we are able to offer next year and into the future.
“We have added an extra class to Year 7 for 2018 and that’s now full.
“People will need to plan further ahead. We suggest coming to an open day a number of years before you want to start and getting your enrolments in early,” Peter said.
He also encouraged families to consider Geelong College from the earliest years.
“We run an outstanding early leaning program with two classes for four and five-year-olds and two classes for three and four-year-olds – the second beginning in term two and enabling children to begin as soon as they turn three.
“The fees are comparable to most early learning centres and our program, which is part of the Junior School, inspires curiosity and confidence.
“Our early learners have priority entry to Prep, but for outside families we encourage enrolment at two or three years old.
“Our Junior School is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach and the small classes facilitate high levels of inquiry and engagement.
“From Year 4 our students move to the Middle School where they spend their first year immersed in an environmental education program.
“This is followed by a focus on Designing the Future in Year 5, and the Year 6 media immersion.
“These programs develop hands-on problem solving and presentation skills, and are developed specifically to engage all types of learners.
“Core subjects are integrated into year-long investigations, making sometimes foreign concepts easily relatable.”
