At Morialta Secondary College we encourage excellence in all forms, where every student can progress with their learning and grow as an individual. Our Connect program is a developmental program specifically designed for each year level and stages of adolescence and follow our pillars to enable students to belong, achieve and become. Our college values weave throughout the Connect program.
Connect places an importance on knowing our students as individuals, whilst ensuring they feel they belong to the college and wider community, acting respectfully and empathetically to become active, responsible and successful global citizens.
All students are active members of a Connect class, supported by their Connect teacher who will deliver the program and monitor students learning and wellbeing. There are 3 Connect lessons per week. The Connect teacher is a key contact for both students and their families.
