Toorak College, in Mount Eliza, provides the best educational start for your child. We inspire all of our students to dream big and aim high; we have quality teachers that develop our students’ passions wherever they may lie. We welcome girls and boys from 3-year-old pre-school to Year 4, with an all-girls’ approach from Years 5 to 12.
In the early years, we value exploration, curiosity and social development. Our Early Learning Centre exceeds the national standard, with an emphasis on a child’s holistic development as influenced by Reggio Emilia practices and the PYP-IB curriculum and a focus on the development of core skills. We encourage each student’s sense of wonder and inquiry, placing importance on his or her emotional and social development.
Wardle House, our Junior School, is so much more than a primary school. Acclaimed for its International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP), Wardle House develops creative, competent and independent thinkers. Small class sizes, personalised learning programs and extensive co-curricular offerings allow our students to find their own pathway to be brilliant.
Principal Mrs Kristy Kendall says, “We instil in our students a sense of confidence, and give them the belief that they can try anything; our students know that making mistakes is how they grow and improve. We develop creative thinkers and encourage our students to be self-reflective and self-motivated.”
Our all-girl approach from Years 5 to 12 provides every girl with opportunities for leadership, participation and voice. We provide innovative learning opportunities that encourage self-reflection, risk taking and confidence building. Girls’ schools are ideally positioned to educate, inspire and nurture the young women of today who will be the leaders of tomorrow. Girls excel in a girls’ school.
Throughout the Senior Years, our students develop analytical, innovative, entrepreneurial and creative skills required for life-long learning. We foster each individual’s self-belief, passion, pride and integrity.
“At Toorak we expect our graduates to be aspirational and push themselves – with the right encouragement and confidence in their own abilities, our students will leave the school believing that they can do anything. We encourage all students to find their passions, identify their strengths and to make the most of their Toorak College experience”, says Mrs Kendall.
