Seymour College has
a long history of high
achievement in girls’
education in South Australia.
Now, in less than two
years, the College has been
authorised to offer a new
choice for students: the
Diploma Programme (IBDP).
“I am delighted to announce
that Seymour College is now
officially an IB World School,
having been successfully
authorised to offer the
Diploma Programme from
January 2017,” said Melissa
Seymour will continue to
offer both the SACE and the
IBDP, giving students more
options and opportunities
depending on their learning
“While the IBDP represents
an exciting new dimension in
our curriculum offerings at
Seymour, we remain strongly
committed to the SACE and
recognise that it continues
to be an excellent and highly
suitable learning pathway for
many of our senior students,”
Ms Powell said.
Our extensive and fl exible
curriculum enables girls to
follow their ambition and
select subjects that they are
not only passionate about,
but provide the best platform
for their chosen future.
“The IBDP will offer our
students an opportunity to
be curious and inquisitive
in their learning, all while
becoming a part of a globally
recognized community,” said
Robyn Scott, Seymour’s
SACE and IBDP Coordinator.
Seymour is passionate about
offering girls an outstanding
education that responds to
their unique needs and helps
them to fl ourish.
The IBDP gives students a
greater breadth of subjects
to choose from. It will foster
in students a love of lifelong
learning, enabling them to
develop as problem solvers,
deep thinkers and inquirers.
These qualities are in
keeping with Seymour’s
traditions as well as
being traits required by
universities and employers
in the 21st century.
Seymour has also been
working passionately to
introduce the IB Primary
Years Programme (PYP) for
its younger students from
Foundation to Year 5.
The College is going on
this educational journey
to provide the very best
education for students
who will be engaged in our
rapidly globalizing world.
The aim is to be fully
authorized by the end of 2017
and Seymour is well on track
to achieve this additional
milestone in its proud history
of educational innovation in

Introducing the International
Programme at Seymour
Boarder from Robe
I started boarding at
Seymour this year and
I absolutely love it. The
girls are really friendly.
The boarding girls
are very much part of the bigger community
at Seymour, I have certainly noticed that
everyone is truly supportive of all the girls in
the Boarding House.
I believe that happy boarders make for a
happy Boarding House and in my experience
the girls have been genuinely friendly,
welcoming and cooperative. It works well and
everyone feels at home and comfortable.
The Seymour community plays a huge role in
the lives of boarders. They help with so many
aspects of school life and help us to thrive.
The parents of day girls do a great job of
helping ensure we can get a lift to and from
The teaching staff are incredible, as they are
happy to come in to the Boarding House and
help us with extra tutoring and school work.
The Boarding House staff are so caring,
they always know how to help and are there
if we need to talk to someone about problems
that we may be facing.
I’m planning to study the International
Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) next
year. I want to study abroad and I think it will be an
excellent foundation for overseas study and travel.
I am really looking forward to learning
Spanish and I am excited to study fi lm. I
wouldn’t have this opportunity without the
IBDP so I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.
I hope to study aerospace engineering or
software engineering after I complete Year
12, however I haven’t settled on a University
just yet. I think the advantage I have is there
are no courses that are off limits with the IB.
The best thing about boarding at Seymour
has been the opportunity to bond with girls
my age at school events. These events unite
the community and make us all feel a part of
something much bigger. The leadership from
the older girls is amazing. The friendship and
support in our year level helps bring out the
best in all of us.
My advice to any girl thinking of boarding
at Seymour is to just do it! It is the best thing
you’ll ever do. If you’re nervous, don’t be
because it’s so friendly and it is an amazing
community to be a part of.
