The Middle Years

middle-years-photo-ictStudents in the middle years at Iona College study under a core teacher structure whereby two teachers cover the core subjects for each class. This model fosters strong relationships between teachers and students, facilitates a safe, supportive transition into secondary schooling, ensures consistency in learning and establishes a strong sense of belonging.

In Years 7 and 8, students use their laptops to ensure efficient, effective learning across all curriculum areas. Students engage in a research and technology program to cover digital citizenship and research skills. Hands on, problem-based learning is encouraged and technology is used as a tool to enhance creativity across a range of learning areas including robotics, visual art, science, industrial design and technology and music.
