Welcome to Hawker College!
Our vision is that we engage and inspire each other to achieve our potential as a community of learning.
Hawker College is dedicated to providing high quality academic, vocational and social programs that improve learning outcomes for all students and enable them to successfully realise their individual potential and future pathways. This is our mission.
Hawker college is a welcoming community of learning, and we value honesty, excellence, fairness and respect.
A reputation for excellence
Since1976, the college has established a reputation for excellence. It has a strong presence in the community, reflecting innovative and outstanding provision for a broad range of pathways, learning needs and student interests. The college provides strong academic programs and nationally recognised vocational education programs. Teachers have a high level of expertise in their fields and there are excellent specialist facilities throughout the college.
A positive ethos
Students at Hawker College show a high level of commitment in their participation in both college educational programs and extra-curricular pursuits. We value the high standards to which our students aspire, the enterprise they show and the respectful, purposeful and supportive ethos of our college community. Scope for student enterprise is evident in the range of student action groups at our college and authentic learning is apparent in the many opportunities to connect learning in the curriculum with the outside world and for students to be agents for positive change, now and in their futures.
Support for success in senior secondary education
To ensure that our students reach their full potential, we provide extensive support services that focus on course and careers planning and welfare support. The college was recognised for the high standard of this provision through MindMatters accreditation at the end of 2013 and through the school validation process in 2015.
The college continually develops strong links with the Belconnen network of schools across P-12 years. Students are given every opportunity connect to the local and broader community. Partnerships such as those with ANU, Australian Signals Directorate, and Uniting Care Kippax enhance these connections.
