School Context Statement

The Thebarton Senior College motto is 'Carpe Diem Quam Minimum Credula Postero' - these words remind us to "seize the day and be prepared for what tomorrow brings".

The College achieves its mission of preparing students for their transition into further learning, employment and life as global citizens through quality teaching programs.

The core values of the College are Excellence, Respect, Innovation and Sustainability. Our vision for the College is an engaged, connected and resilient community of learners: students, support staff and teachers.

Recognised as a United Nations Global Peace School in 2007, Thebarton Senior College welcomes students from over 76 different cultures. This diversity provides a rich and unique educational environment. Students are encouraged to participate in the many events and celebrations that take place each term.

Thebarton Senior College offers an extensive SACE curriculum and is also a Registered Training Organisation. The college is the only New Arrivals Program provider for senior secondary students in Adelaide.

The Thebarton Senior School Context Statement describes the nature of the student cohort, teaching and leadership staff, resources, directions and outcomes and is an essential part of the school's responsibility as a member of the Department of Education and Child Development within the South Australian government.
