Student Welfare & Pastoral Care

The Senior Years

The Senior Years encompass Years 9 to 12. Students in Years 9 and 10 choose electives from a broad variety of options as well as a great range of extracurricular activities and experiences.

Years 11 and 12 are the Collegiate Years at Wollondilly. Surrounded by a purpose built Senior campus, senior students have the opportunity to work towards their HSC surrounded by state-of-the-art facilities and supported by high quality experienced staff. As Seniors, students in Years 11 and 12 are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and study patterns as they develop the skills necessary to balance the workload of the HSC with other areas of their life. The Collegiate years are an important part of preparing students for the future.

Students in the Senior Years receive support from their Primary Pastoral Carers and their Year Patrons. This support is important as they move into a time of their development that prepares them for post-school options, managing increased workloads and ever changing social dynamics.

The Student Leadership roles in the Senior Years are:

  • College Captains – Year 12
  • Prefects – Year 12
  • SRC representatives -Year 11
  • Senior Captains – Year 10
  • SRC representatives – Year 9 .

Students enjoy a term based Chapel Service, a fortnightly Pastoral Care Program (Years 9 and 10) and have three sessions per week with a designated Roll Call Teacher who assists with a range of administrative and pastoral support along with commencing the day with a time of devotions.
