Opening in 2020, Alkimos College provides local students with access to an exceptional secondary education in world-class learning facilities.
Alkimos College will have high expectations of the student cohort to ensure all students are well prepared for their future; and have opportunities to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to achieve their potential. This will be complemented by a strong focus on student engagement and mental health and well-being.
Alkimos College is one of only sixteen schools chosen to have a Specialised Autism Spectrum Disorder Learning Program, with the program already in place at Alkimos Primary School; providing students with a seamless Kindergarten to Year 12 program, if required. There is an academic extension pathway (Alpha Program) and a whole school approach to STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths) to provide ‘hands-on’ and ‘minds-on’ lessons for students.
A partnership founded on strong relationships between students, staff, parents/carers and the community will be the enduring platform upon which the school is built.
Located on the corner of Santorini Promenade and Hollington Boulevard, the college will be built in stages. Stage 1 (ready for 2020) includes state of the art classrooms, specialist science laboratories, food and textiles studios, gymnasium, fitness centre, library, design technology workshops, administration and student services. Areas for students to play and socialise include an extensive cafeteria, landscaped courtyards and multipurpose playing courts. Sharing the use of ovals and facilities with the City of Wanneroo from 2021, the school will also play an integral role in creating opportunities to unite the community.
Stage 2 construction (ready for 2024), will include additional learning areas, visual arts, performing arts and dance, music and media classrooms, commercial kitchen, mechatronics and a lecture theatre.
As Foundation Principal I am honoured to lead the creation and direction of the college and develop a strong vision and ethos. My focus is on creating and maintaining a college culture of ‘high performance and high care’ for students, staff and the community.
Our journey is an exciting one and we hope you will partner with us to make Alkimos College a truly great school! I encourage you to become part of the daily life of our college, to hold us to our commitments and work with us to aspire, act and achieve.
