St Philip’s Christian College (Cessnock, NSW) provides students with a vibrant, innovative learning environment where they can pursue excellence. In the past 12 months, the College has implemented strategies that focus on the development of students as global citizens.
To engage entrepreneurial knowledge and practical skills, SPCC Cessnock launched the ‘Young Entrepreneurs Scheme (YES Pathway)’, which combines online and face-to-face learning as well as industry placement. Students who finish the course achieve an ungraded ATAR up to 75 and a wide range of VET qualifications. Initiatives such as ‘Business in a Box’ and ‘Think Tank’ also encourage entrepreneurship among junior and middle school students, respectively. SPCC Cessnock often invites local businesses to offer constructive feedback at these events.
The College is a change agent in shared, collaborative community facilities. Its state-of-the-art Activate Centre, rugby fields and Senior School building have been used by local organisations and sporting teams, such as the Wallabies, Western Force and Weston Bears. Having access to the same facilities used by world-class athletes inspires students to become successful in life.
SPCC Cessnock has introduced independent learning days, extended after-hours study options, and a primary industries/agriculture program for senior students. Friday lunchtime concerts are also held to increase interest in the College’s music program.
