Education & Training
Blessed with the most beautiful location for a school - many would argue the best in the state – Tenison Woods has a technology focus with a huge amount invested in computer hardware and software. From our Music Suite, where students can write and produce their own songs, to the Imac’s in our Graphic Design Room, and our vibrant CISCO Academy, students have state of the art facilities that assist them achieve their goals and open up avenues of choices.
Senior school students have shown a great deal of interest in the “McDonalds” Practice Firm that was established in 2003. This valued partnership with McDonalds Restaurants has introduced students to a simulated world of business where they trade with other practice firms around Australia.
The “Basketball” Academy has also captured the imagination of many of the sports minded students.
Tenison Woods College prides itself on its multi-cultural offerings with students recently returning from a trip to America with trips also planned for China & Italy every year.
Once again, Tenison Woods College is very proud of the excellent results achieved by our 2005 Senior School graduates. We congratulate the 2005 SACE Stage 2 students on their achievements, and wish all graduates great success in their future fields of work and study.
