The Mark Oliphant College learning community develops students as powerful learners who succeed as active global citizens.
I would like to warmly welcome you to the Mark Oliphant College website. I am privileged to be leading the school as Principal throughout 2017 and invite you to explore our site to discover what makes Mark Oliphant College such a special place. As you read through the pages of our site, you will learn about our wonderful students, our college and get a feel for the vibrancy and strength of our wider community.
Mark Oliphant College is a ‘Learning Community’ which encourages staff, students (including past students) and parents to involve themselves fully in all aspects of school life with a focus on our core school values of Respect, Responsibility and Safety.
We offer a broad curriculum and a range of opportunities which allow us to support all of our students to be Powerful Learners and to be the best that they can be. We value positive relationships with a focus on Positive Education, building capacity amongst students to effectively allow them to engage in the world of the future.
Our vision extends far beyond the classroom responding to individual student learning needs, encouraging participation in a broad range of curriculum offerings underpinned by the SACE, Australian Curriculum and Early Years Learning Framework with a focus on extension, enrichment and acceleration opportunities. We encourage our students to involve themselves in the broader curriculum program including Children’s University, Vocational Education and Training (VET) courses, STEM, Creative Arts, leadership activities such as our Student Representative Council and the many and varied sporting opportunities.
We are focused on developing and building on a range of programs which support learning with a particular focus on the successful transition across every sub-school including our Children’s Centre, Early Years, Primary Years, Middle Years and Senior Years sub-schools.
We are extremely proud of our school and invite you to discover more about Mark Oliphant College as you peruse our website.
