Religious and Spiritual

Casey Grammar School aims to provide a learning environment in which the School can support parents and churches in the growth and nurture of students in the Christian faith while also enabling students to experience the freedom to share and express the Christian faith.

The School offers experiences of Christian living through the study of the Bible, corporate prayers and worship of God and fosters the Christian ideals of service to others and commitment to God. Casey Grammar School has a Chaplain who leads and fosters the spiritual development of the school community. The Chaplain contributes to the well being of the school community through her ongoing presence and availability as a member of the Student Well-being team, providing support to students and staff.

The Chaplain can be contacted at the school at any time.

Curriculum

Casey Grammar School is committed to offering a thorough, sequential and comprehensive curriculum founded on the Victorian Curriculum. In the Early Years (P-2) the focus is on establishing a strong foundation in numeracy and literacy that is further developed in Years 3-6. In Years 7-10 our students are immersed in an extensive range of core and elective courses, setting our students up for either a VCE (ATAR) or Casey Pathway in their Senior Years. Pathways may include a variety of Vocational and Educational Training (VET) courses and other recognised certifications. We believe in achieving personal excellence in all programs and focus on global competencies that include critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, communications, problem solving and inquiry. We aim to challenge all students to reach their potential in order to become independent and active members of their community, who are prepared for the challenges of an ever changing global environment.

Personal Relationships and Student Well-being

At Casey Grammar School, we aim to foster appropriate relationships between teachers and students, with the teacher as a role model and encourage both teachers and students to initiate positive interactions. We aim to encourage such honesty within the school community that mutual trust, respect, and true discipline can grow and develop, and each individual student be properly known and recognised.

Academic and Attitudinal

The School aims to provide the students given their abilities and backgrounds, with the opportunity to undertake studies in a broad range of disciplines that promote intellectual challenge, a broadening of horizons, a love of learning and a spirit of enquiry that will enable all students to pursue their aspirations beyond the school as effective citizens.

Personal Well-being and extra-curricular activities

Casey Grammar School aims to promote personal health and fitness through participation in sport and recreational activities and to encourage the effective use of leisure both within and outside the school.

Opportunity -Student Leadership

Student leadership is considered to be an integral part of Casey Grammar School’s well-being and personal development programs, providing vital opportunities for personal growth. We want our students to learn and appreciate the value of service, both to other people and to their own ideas, initiatives and projects. Our students will experience the satisfaction and reward of turning an initiative into a successful reality, of making a strong and lasting difference to their own and the lives of others at the School. It is often a challenge for young people to assert themselves, and to take a stand for what they know to be right. Training and support is provided to all of our students to instil sound values, a strong moral compass, confidence and self-assurance. Student leadership opportunities are available across the entire school.

The Wider School Community

Casey Grammar School aims to form a community in which all the participating bodies – the Churches, the Board, the Consultative Committee, the Staff, the students, the Parents and Friends are all involved together in creating a harmonious and stimulating atmosphere in which the students can develop a feeling of self-worth, a sincere respect for others and a sense of personal responsibility and commitment to the School and the wider Community.

The school takes into account society’s diversity in the care and education of our students. We have a responsibility to safeguard the rights of all children to be treated equitably by adopting an inclusive concept of services and strategies open to all students and families who come to Casey Grammar School.
