Middle School

The Kerang Christian College Middle School is part of the Secondary School and has been structured to meet the needs of students studying Years 7 - 9. Students study a core curriculum commencing in Year 7 which includes English, Mathematics, History, Humanities, Geography and Science. Students also study a range of specialist classes, which provide a solid foundation for students as they commence Secondary School. Specialist subjects at the Year 7 level include: Food Technology, Health & Physical Education, ICT, LOTE (Auslan), Performing Arts, Textiles, Visual Arts and Wood Technology. In Years 8 and 9, to supplement their core subjects, students may select from a wide range of elective subjects, which are often complimentary to future VCE pathways.

Students in the Secondary School have studied over twenty elective and specialist classes during the past two years. Some of the subjects that have been offered include: Athlete Development, Advanced Science, ICT Multimedia, Psychology, Advanced Mathematics, Business Studies, Legal Studies and more! The Middle School curriculum, while developed to meet the requirements of the Australian Curriculum Framework and government requirements, provides students with a great opportunity to study subjects across a wide range of learning areas. The College has developed the Middle School curriculum to still place a significant emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy.

Students are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities. Many of these activities have a community focus, but are also in place to make learning authentic. Students have an opportunity to participate in camps, excursions, sporting events, musicals, competitions, incursions, chapels, assemblies and much more.

At Kerang Christian College, our teaching staff are committed to meeting the individual needs of each student. Curriculum differentiation provides an opportunity for staff to best meet the needs of each learner. Effective differentiation challenges each student with their learning in order to ensure each student grows in their learning across a range of curriculum areas. Kerang Christian College teachers differentiate curriculum by:

  • Using a range of assessments to evaluate the needs of each student
  • Planning and providing targeted teaching in areas of need 
  • Providing appropriate scaffolded support to challenge students working at different levels 
  • Planning and implementing a variety of whole class, individual and small group activities 
  • Planning and implementing learning activities that meet the needs of a range of different learning styles

Every effort is made to ensure that there are strong communication links between t the home and College. The College diary and fortnightly newsletter, The Harvest, are key communication tools. Other communication tools include handbooks, class letters, email, telephone and individual notes to parents. We believe it is important that parents are well informed about curriculum and student progress at Kerang Christian College.

It is our prayer and desire that every student will have a positive experience at school. A positive experience involves students developing healthy relationships, achieving their personal best, maintaining physical and emotional well-being and developing a greater understanding of Christian faith and character.
