2022 Senior Program Guide

Dear students, parents, guardians and careers,

Welcome to Collingwood College and Fitzroy High School’s Senior Program Guide for 2022.

In a new exciting chapter for the partnership, in 2022, all classes for all Year 11 and 12 subjects will now be based at our shared senior campus, located at the old Fitzroy Gasworks site, in Queens Parade. The new campus will offer key opportunities for all students.  The design of the building showcases specialist learning precincts including Science, Technology, Art, Food, Design, Sport and the Performing Arts. These areas will sit more alongside generalist, flexible learning spaces that will encourage and promote learning throughout the facility.

The new campus will have a strong connection to the indigenous history and culture of our local community and with our existing school sites, building on the history and culture of Collingwood College and Fitzroy High School at the new campus.

Students of Collingwood College and Fitzroy High School are automatically eligible to attend Fitzroy Gasworks Senior Campus (interim name) in Year 11 and 12.  Year 10 students are also eligible to apply to study subjects at the Fitzroy Gasworks Senior Campus (interim name). Students select subjects by going through the panel process outlined on page 25 – 28 of the Senior Program Guide.

The Senior Program Guide 2022 has been produced to support you with the Senior School application process and to tell you more about the amazing facilities that will be available to all our senior students. Please read carefully.

Any student who would like to enroll at Year 11 and 12 will need to follow our enrolment procedure and enroll at the closest school to their home address. Enrolment is subject to availability.

We wish you well with your decision-making and planning and look forward to working with all our students and families in 2022.

Kind regards,

Chris Millard

Business Start-up Boot Camp

What solutions can be found to help solve the problem of affordable housing in Melbourne for young people? In September, Unit 3/4 Business Management students were challenged to develop solutions to this very real issue. As part of a full day Student Start-up Bootcamp run by the Melbourne Innovation Centre, students were taken through a program to develop entrepreneurial ideas. They then used the skills they developed to brainstorm different solutions to housing affordability for young adults. This program combined many of the concepts the students have been exploring in VCE Business Management, and allowed the students to apply these concepts in a real scenario. The group engaged keenly with the learning activities and shared their creativity and enthusiasm freely. The solutions found were diverse and exciting, and may be the start of something interesting. Thank you to David at Melbourne Innovation Centre for this terrific opportunity for our students.
