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.

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.
