2021 Senior Program Guide

Dear students, parents and carers,

Welcome to Collingwood College and Fitzroy High School’s Senior Program Guide. This shared program guide is a symbol of the continued commitment of both schools to provide the best senior school opportunities for our communities. By collaborating in an innovative, responsive, personalised and future-oriented senior school environment, the partnership looks to optimise educational outcomes for all students.

We, therefore, want to provide a range of educational options for all of our students moving into their senior secondary years. This includes both VCE and VCAL certificates. VCE, the main secondary school certificate, focuses on developing students’ academic skills and knowledge to transition to further tertiary study. VCAL is an alternative option and ideally suited to students who thrive in a practical learning environment and has the benefit of flexibility that allows for numerous paths to success. These include going straight into the workforce or further vocational training at TAFE or University following secondary school.

This is a very exciting time for current Year 10 students, in the process of making significant decisions for their senior and final years of secondary school. It is also an important time for current Year 11 students, who have an opportunity to refine their programs for Year 12; the final stage of the secondary school journey.

There are a number of factors to be taken into consideration. Importantly, decisions need to be made with a future-focus. A senior program needs to open up a future, which offers opportunity and flexibility. The course and subject choices will be critical to success, leading to a variety of pathways namely higher education, training or employment.

In the time we have been offering VCE and VCAL, we have established a legacy of student success, demonstrated by consistent academic results and transition to tertiary studies. Through our partnership, as well, with the Inner Melbourne VET Cluster (IMVC), students can access an extensive range of VET certificate courses. Many of our former students have gone on to tertiary studies to specialise in the area they studied in VET. In-house VET subjects are offered at Collingwood which have the advantage of access to their VET teacher beyond the face-to-face class time. This is beneficial in a busy senior school schedule.

The Senior Program Guide 2021 has been produced to support you with the Senior School application process. Please read carefully.

Next year will be full of challenges. We wish you well with your decision-making and planning and look forward to working with all our students and families in 2021.

Year 12 Theatre Studies Production is NOW LIVE!

To the Collingwood College and Fitzroy High School Community, 

WE ARE PROUD to announce that the Year 12 Theatre Studies online production of ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’ is now LIVE.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions and Term 2 spent out of the theatre and behind our computer screens, we have had to adapt our performance to fit a flexible online format. We have modified our conventional theatre production to an interpretative cinematic representation of the play, that is featured on our linked website that also includes behind the scene footage and commentary of our production journey.

We have created an online visual and audio experience in an attempt to communicate our original artistic vision and creative interpretation whilst also staying within the guidelines put forward by the adjusted Theatre Studies Study Design. Our visual experience showcases videos and monologues to emulate the audience experience desired for our original stage play. The online production draws inspiration from three main theatre styles. These styles include, ‘Theatre of Cruelty’, ‘German Expressionism’, and ‘Naturalism’.

All footage, sound and music is ORIGINAL and created by students.

We hope that you enjoy the work we’ve put into it our online production during this unprecedented and unusual time in all of our lives.
