Curriculum

At pro we believe that each child should be given the opportunity to discover who they are and what they love doing. We know that not everyone is a scholar or good with their hands or on the sports field or dance floor. We do know, however, that everyone is good at something. Our role is to help them uncover this.

The pro Curriculum aims to build confident and independent learners with our student-centered learning programs. Our approach goes beyond the standard Australian Curriculum and offers students countless opportunities to discover their own gifts and talents. 

All students at pro study a core curriculum of English, Science, Mathematics, Physical Education, Outdoor Education, Chpale and Christian Studies. Every Grace student will also have the opportunity to take part in specialised learning areas, such as our robotics programperforming arts program and sporting program. Students can choose to continue these through high school as elective subjects.  This large range of subject offerings is very popular with Grace students and their families.

Our curriculum also offers Learning Enhancement opportunities, including accelerated programs for advanced learners, gifted and talented programs and extensive learning support services for students. These programs span Year 7 to Year 12 and may be tailored to each student's needs.

In Year 10, students take part in our 4-week Googa Outdoor Education program where they explore independence, personal growth and Christian Faith. In their senior years, pro offers work experience, accredited VET courses and recognised university subjects to students. Each may complete these while still attending high schools - opening up early career pathways and employment opportunities. 

At Grace, students are also encouraged to participate in the wide range of co-curricular opportunities, camps and events on and off campus.

At Grace, all year levels regularly run AWARE Days and other college-wide fundraisers, such as Shave for a Cure and the Kokoda Challenge. They also participate in service learning projects within the community, and run supportive student clubs such as Ladies Chill'n'Chat and Men's Shed. International Partnerships Programs enable students to travel overseas for service learning experiences in Indonesia, Cambodia and Uganda, or to take part in student exchange programs. In Australia, our performing arts programs put students on the stage with dance competitions, instrumental tours and school musicals.

Caboolture Captains

Captains 2023: Getting to know our leaders

Felicity Klinge:


What traits are most important to leadership and why?

“I think being someone who is real and vulnerable is really important – showing people that it’s ok not to always have it all together, we are always learning, I want to show people what that’s like.”

How would you like to be remembered?

“I would like to be remembered as someone really approachable as a friendly face around the school – if someone needed to have a chat I’d like to know they could come up to me. Leaving a legacy isn’t necessarily about what you do, but how you made people felt. I want people to remember me as someone who made them feel welcome and like they belonged,”

What are you planning on doing after school?

“Secondary education and teaching modern history, otherwise I could go with a completely different direction and, or a bachelor of criminology and do forensics.”

What inspires you?

“I think seeing all the captains since I have started at Grace, I remember meeting the girls’ school captain my first day of year 7, she sat down and had a chat with us and she was so funny and welcoming, she really wanted to be there and be there with us. I feel like I have gotten to know the captains more throughout the years and they - and the school itself - have given me so much, that I want to give back. I want to help people have the same amazing experience that I have had.”

Lachlan Scudamore:

What traits are most important to leadership and why?

“I think it’s really important to be a servant to people, to give your time freely and try to be there for them, ensuring that they are ok and if they are not, helping them in any way you can, and stepping up to change.”

How would you like to be remembered? 

“I want to be a leader who is remembered as someone who was approachable. Everyone’s experiences are different and everyone interprets situations differently, so as a leader I feel like you need to be the person who makes a difference to those individuals and listens to their individual needs. I definitely want to make an impression on everyone’s lives at the school. I Want to be that captain that anyone will talk to and I want people to know I will do things for others and will put myself out to make sure I help others in any way that I can.

"My goal is to get people from waking up in the morning and going ‘Oh, I have to go to school,’ to saying 'Yes, I get to go to school,' and I want students to enjoy coming to school and enjoy having this community.”

What are you planning on doing after school? 

“For so long I knew what I wanted to do, I wanted to be an aesthetic nurse but now I think I want to go to uni and do a degree in management and have that under my belt. Then I’m also thinking about the police. I do feel like if I don’t do something that helps people where I give back to the community then I won’t be fulfilled.”

What inspires you?

“I’m inspired to give back to the school and the students. Throughout the years, the captains have always made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. They helped me to feel safer and less nervous. These captains inspired me to make an impact on other student’s lives at the school.”
