Good Pastoral Care is foundational to promoting student well-being and subsequently assists scholastic achievement. In the Middle School, the Class Teacher’s role is pivotal as they oversee, on a daily basis, the welfare of students in their Class Teacher group. Designated Pastoral Care periods assist students with organisational skills and personal development and provide opportunity for regular assemblies.
Each teacher has their own classroom discipline plan which seeks to consistently support and guide students in a productive and co-operative approach to learning.
In Grades 7 and 8 all students study a common course in the following subjects: Bible Study, Computing, Design Graphics, Drama, English, Health, Home Economics, Mathematics, Music, Physical Education, Science, Society and Environment, Technology and Visual Art. Students also study either French or Indonesian as a Language other than English.

Students also choose to study three from the following subjects: Advanced Science, Art, Computing, Design Graphics, Drama, Food Studies, Technology, Mathematics Methods or Music. Most subjects in Grade 9 are offered at three levels of difficulty so that students can be taught and assessed at a standard that is both achievable and challenging.
At Launceston Christian School we aspire to be mindful of our Biblical perspective and its relevance to teaching and learning in all subjects in the curriculum. In keeping with this perspective we strive to focus on each student’s physical, emotional, intellectual, social, aesthetic, and spiritual growth within the classroom and beyond.The whole student management plan for Middle School consists of well defined steps and strategies, involving a range of staff support at the various levels. The success of student management at LCS is partly attributed to the very supportive relationship between school and home.
