High School

High School begins in Year 7 and students study a full range of subjects including Humanities, Mathematics, Sciences, Languages, Arts, Design, Physical and Health Education. Subjects such as Creative Writing, Poetry, Medieval History, Geography, Physics, Astronomy, and Geology, are also studied in much more depth, meaning children are further prepared for High School and are excited to learn at Orana.

The High School teaching program assists students in taking increasing responsibility for their own learning and to develop their own ideals, values and sense of purpose for adult life.
