Senior Campus Life

The senior campus has a success-oriented culture offering diverse programs to develop expert learners and provide for individual interests, talents, and pathways.

As a specialist senior campus, we have a proud tradition of academic excellence with graduates achieving outstanding results. The senior campus builds independent learning skills and effectively prepares students for further education, training or employment. Senior schooling centres around the SACE framework and its capabilities to develop resilient, informed and engaged global citizens.

We are passionate about providing an engaging, future-focused curriculum that develops our students’ critical and creative thinking, communication and collaborative skills to ensure lifelong success.

Norwood Morialta High School’s specialist senior staff have a wealth of knowledge and experience. The staff understand the challenges and complexities of undertaking senior schooling and work collaboratively with all students to ensure the best possible outcomes.

 

SACE

Our senior students have access to relevant, contemporary and high quality senior secondary education. Senior students undertake Stage 1 and Stage 2 of the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE). They choose from an extensive range of SACE Board approved subjects that cater for individual interests, specialised learning and future focussed careers. The senior campus affords several specialist programs with purpose-built facilities and teaching expertise.

More information can be found in the SACE Curriculum section of our website.

 

Vocational Educational Training

Students in Years 11 and 12 have the opportunity to personalise their learning pathway by incorporating nationally accredited certificate courses in vocational areas into their SACE. Norwood Morialta High School is a member of the Eastern Area Schools Cluster and together with a range of training organisations, provide courses that enable students to develop and practice business and industry-specific skills while at the same time meeting their SACE requirements.

Students have access to courses in a wide range of areas including:

  • Art, Design, Fashion, and Multimedia
  • Auto, Construction, Electrical, Engineering, and Plumbing
  • Business Management, Fitness, Childcare and Health Assistance
  • Hair, Beauty, and Makeup
  • Hospitality and Tourism

While all qualifications accrue different numbers of SACE credits depending on the level of the Certificate and its complexity, the completion of a Certificate III can be used not only for SACE completion but also in the calculation of an ATAR score for university entry.

 

Learning Communities

The senior campus is structured into two learning communities, Laslett and Campbell and led by learning community leaders and assisted by a team of caring and committed teachers. Both Year 11 and 12 students are placed in Personal Learning Groups (PLG) together to promote an inclusive senior school identity. Students undertake a Personal Learning program to foster capabilities that will allow them to become informed, adaptable and resilient learners.
