You only want the best for your child, which is why it can be extremely stressful trying to find the perfect school for them. Well, you can stop stressing.
Located in the inner-northern Brisbane suburb of Clayfield is one of Queensland’s leading schools, Clayfield College.
Founded in 1931, Clayfield College has a proud history of offering a genuine Christian learning environment where students are encouraged, nurtured and inspired to achieve personal excellence.
Director of Marketing and Community Relations at Clayfield College, Jackie Upton says the College is a place where each individual is valued for their unique qualities and talents.
“Our aim is to instil in our students a thirst for knowledge, a confidence in their ability and the importance of celebrating the talents each of us possess,” she says.
“We encourage a high level of personal integrity, respect and compassion for others and a developing sense of individual responsibility, not only to the school community, but also to society as a whole.”
Clayfield College welcomes students from all over Australia and the world, catering for girls from PrePrep to Year 12 and boys from PrePrep to Year 6. The College is also a boarding school for girls, caring for students from Year 5 to Year 12.
Clayfield College is committed to excellence in education, from the development of solid foundations in literacy and numeracy in Junior School, to comprehensive education experiences developing in breadth and depth to Year 12.
“Our academic, pastoral and co-curricular programs supported by our exceptional teaching staff are important elements in providing opportunities for each child to grow and develop in mind, body and spirit,” Ms Upton says.
“At Clayfield two of our core values are a commitment to life-long learning and striving for personal excellence.”
“Not only do we value excellence in academics, but we also value excellence in music, the arts, sports and service leadership.”
At Clayfield, students have access to specialist music teachers, vocal and instrumental tuition as well as a variety of musical group opportunities including string orchestras, bands, ensembles groups and choirs.
The College also gives students the unique opportunity to perform internationally. Many of the College’s performing students have continued their music study after College, some becoming successful musicians.
As well as stimulating students’ minds, Clayfield College believe maintaining a healthy body is pivotal to students’ development. Participation in sports activities is encouraged for all students from Prep through to Year 12.
The College offers state-of-the-art sporting facilities including a multi-purpose Physical Education Centre and gymnasium, a heated swimming pool complex, tennis and netball courts and access to the Shaw Park sporting fields.
An Elite Sport Program that includes gymnastics, swimming, tennis, soccer, athletics and hockey is offered to Clayfield girls who are competing at a state or national level for their sport. The program provides curriculum flexibility and through partnerships with specialist sporting coaches and a range of sports professionals, the College provides the opportunity for talented sportswomen to excel in both study and training.
If this sounds like the perfect school for you and your child, Clayfield College will be holding an open morning on Thursday, 13 August from 9am until 10:30am, offering a close look into the College’s teaching and learning environment.
Ms Upton says the morning will offer parents an intimate opportunity to engage with staff and students and ask the questions that are important to making a decision about their child’s education.
“Every school provides a Prospectus and you can research a school’s offerings and performance but what’s most important is seeing first-hand how a school functions, hear from the Principal and speak with teachers and students,” she says.
