Middle School (Years 7 - 9)

Cardijn College is committed to best-practice middle schooling through an approach to teaching and learning that is student-centred, authentic, collaborative, developmental and challenging.

Programs in a range of subject and co-curricular areas focus on group dynamics, peer interaction and affirmation of achievement. Our students are encouraged to develop self-confidence through achieving success in significant events and to progressively develop a sense of who they are and of the personal, spiritual and social values which will become part of their life.

Our capability-focussed curriculum is unique to Cardijn with interdisciplinary style learning in subjects such as:

Future Thinking - encompasses Mathematics and Science, with elements of Design & Technology and Digital Technologies

Global Perspectives - integrates the subjects of Religion, English, Humanities and Social Sciences

Healthy Lifestyles - incorporates Physical Education, Health and Personal Development.

Languages - Indonesian and Italian are both studied at Year 7, with students able to make a choice between them at Year 8 and beyond.


The elective program offered at Year 7 is designed to enhance the middle school experience and allow students to try a variety of subjects in different disciplines.

Electives subject choices at Year 7 span the Creative Arts, Music, Drama and Technology, including robotics and textiles.

Increased elective opportunities will be offered at Year 8 and 9 including food technology, specialist sports and music programs for students to further develop their individual passions and interests.

One of the highest priorities of the Galilee middle school is providing a seamless transition process for students into Year 10 and beyond. Students will have the option to continue their academic studies at Cardijn's main site at Noarlunga Downs or enter Marcellin at Christie Downs to undertake a specialised trade or vocational program. Students at Marcellin are prepared to undertake a school-based apprenticeship while still achieving the SACE in a highly specialised training environment.
