Compass Catholic Community

Compass Catholic Community is a fee-free Secondary School for young people aged 17 to 24 opening at Davoren Park in Term 1, 2022.

This is a school unlike others, offering young people a very different way of re-connecting with school learning or continuing their education, with highly flexible learning arrangements and co-constructed learning opportunities tailored for each person.

If you know a young person who is wanting to complete their SACE but struggling with traditional schooling, you can find more information about Compass and the process of referring students to Compass, within the article by clicking on the title above.

School Leavers: What to do when you do not get the ATAR, university offer, TAFE offer or job you hoped for

The first round of undergraduate university offers in South Australia have been made this week.

This is a time of trepidation for many young people. For some, this is also an exciting time but for others it might be tinged with disappointment.

It is helpful for young people to know that what they decide to do next year after leaving school will be just one of many career steps in their lives. Self-worth does not hinge on one decision, an ATAR, a job or an offer for tertiary study.

National Skills Week

This week is National Skills Week. The week is dedicated to raising the status of practical and vocational learning. Many senior secondary school students in Catholic Schools, Catholic Technical Colleges and Catholic Trade Training Centre, undertake VET qualifications as part of their SACE learning. Catholic Education South Australia supports the skill development of all students.

A wonderful partnership between Western Technical College and Barkuma has created the Trade2Transition Program. The Trade2Transition program has been designed especially for Year 12 students enrolled in the Barkuma Transition program, who are considering their next step into the world of work. The Barkuma trainees are exploring the Construction and Metal Engineering industries, in a supportive adult learning environment, designed to celebrate adaptability and encourage long life growth.
