Personal Development


It is the aim of our Personal Development programme to present opportunities for our young women’s growth, discovery and transformation. It intends to provide tools and personal strategies to help in the expansion of our young women’s vision for what is possible – stretching their souls, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening, taking risks and facing challenges at every step along the way. ​

The Australian Curriculum is based on the belief that the development of personal and social capability is foundational for learning and for citizenship, and that students develop these capabilities as they learn to understand themselves and others. The significant consequence of this is the prospect of being able to manage and be empowered in relationships, in work, in effective learning, in life.

When our young women are in Year 12 they engage in an extensive QCS program designed to support and prepare her for the Queensland Core Skills Test.
