GCC - Middle School

GCC Middle School for Years 7, 8 and 9, recognises this age group as a distinct developmental phase for students and hence requires a unique response.

Being the bridge between Primary and Senior schooling, Middle School aims to nurture, stimulate and challenge students. As much as possible, learning is made relevant to the lives of these students and the activity-based emphasis more adequately meets the need of this adolescent age group.

Students in Years 7 to 9 participate in:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • HASS
  • Health & Physical Education
  • The Arts
  • Information Technology and Media
  • Industrial Design & Technology
  • Food Technology
  • Design Technology
  • STEM
  • Christian studies

GCC Middle Schoolers participate in the Beyond Horizons program which provides opportunities and experiences that will enhance student learning, develop leadership skills, and inspire students to complete senior schooling through boarding school that equips and prepares them for future success.

We have partnered with Peace Lutheran College in Cairns, a well-respected boarding school, to develop and grow this program within GCC.  Our GCC students visit Peace Lutheran College twice a year which offers our students a boarding experience to assist in preparing them for their future senior schooling years.  They stay in boarding homes on the school site, interact in PLC classes, make friendships, attend elective subjects, participate in excursions and sporting events and learn how to live away from home.
