Defence Families

Students from Years 7 to 12 of Defence Service families have the support of a Defence School Mentor who is located at the College.

The Defence School Mentor provides programs and services to support the individual needs of Defence students. These include:

  • Welcoming new families and students to our College and supporting their integration into the College community.
  • Providing support to students during parental absences.
  • Organising regular social events for students.
  • Excursions for students that encourage leadership, initiative and teamwork. These excursions are often combined with other ACT schools which run a Defence School Mentor program this allows students to socialise across the broader ACT Defence community.
  • Coordinating the whole school ANZAC Day Ceremony and Remembrance Day activities. Also providing opportunities for students to represent the College at local external ceremonies.
  • Providing the Pastoral Care team and teachers support and information to assist defence students.
