SMYL Community College
SMYL Community College was established in 2011 as a referral only CARE school (Curriculum and Re-engagement to Education) for Year 10-12 students in the Rockingham-Kwinana area who are, or are at risk of becoming, disengaged from mainstream schooling due to a complex range of risk factors, behaviours and life situations. For this reason SMYL CC operates an alternative education program through Big Picture Education Australia that caters for both the educational and welfare needs of each student. The school team consists of 2 non-teaching principals; 6 teachers; two part-time education assistants; a counsellor; a youth worker and an administrator.
The college is exploring how to best apply the BP design to fit with the extensive array of certifications on offer through SMYL itself.
