Personalised Learning

Delany College encourages academic excellence and the attainment of personal best at every level. The curriculum offered at the college is flexible and is adapted to suit the needs, interests and abilities of individual students.

The objective of this personalised learning is to extend the gifted students and to support those with ESL and special learning needs.

Students have a wide choice of academic and vocational subjects in Years 11 and 12. University preparation courses include Studies of Religion, English Advanced, English Extension 1 and 2, Mathematics Extension 1 and 2, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Society and Culture, Business Studies, Modern and Ancient History, Music, Visual Arts, PDHPE, CAFS, Hospitality, Construction and Industrial Technology.

Students may also undertake vocational education courses in Hospitality, Construction and Information Technology, and have the opportunity to complete subjects from mainstream TAFE courses as part of their HSC studies.

Where appropriate, students are able to access a broad range of learning pathways combining education, training and work placement. The senior curriculum at Delany provides all students with the opportunity to develop to their full potential.

Technology is fully integrated into the curriculum and we provide opportunities for students in Years 7-12 to engage in learning, using the latest Information and Communication Technologies.

The College offers special support to students who have specific learning needs. We cater for these students in our integrated Special Education and ESL programs, which operate throughout mainstream classes.

All students are expected to take part in all aspects of PDHPE and in our annual swimming and athletics carnivals. There is also opportunity for College representation at zone, Diocesan and State level for those who qualify.
