Senior School Years 10-12
Pathways open up in Senior School
Students in the Senior School make significant choices and identify pathways for their future. Small class sizes, individual care and attention, and teacher availability during students’ free time, all coalesce to make the senior school experience a positive and collaborative one.
Bialik’s staff and dedicated Careers’ Coordinator help students make wise choices to deliver optimum results, not just in terms of the ATAR score but, more importantly, for their life direction and personal goals. Careers counselling is offered to individuals and groups about career choices as well as self-development. Even after graduation, students are welcome to return to Bialik to discuss any career issues.
Leadership opportunities in Senior School are available to all students and are fully inclusive. Year 10 students can participate in The College’s Hadracha (leadership) program and become mentors to younger students on campus; Year 11 students practise Social Responsibility by engaging with the wider community (such as working closely with newly arrived Sudanese immigrants to Australia, providing English support or assisting primary school students from migrant backgrounds in the Dandenong region) and Year 12 students can nominate themselves into the Mazkirut program, taking on portfolios within the College where they can introduce and lead initiatives to enhance College life.
Senior students are encouraged to continue their full participation in extra-curricular opportunities whilst at the same time, they receive the full range of academic support and input. Despite being a non-selective school, Bialik’s VCE results consistently rank in the top five schools in Victoria.
Senior school students also form special relationships with the Prep students - sharing Pesach seders, Shavuot activites, as well as visiting the young members of the Bialik community in the ELC. Click on photo to see gallery.
