Ya pulingina. Hello and welcome. At Elizabeth College we recognise our campus is on Aboriginal land. We are privileged to come together and learn on this country which has nurtured Palawa families for millennia. It is with deep gratitude that we thank them for caring for our island home. We respectfully acknowledge the Palawa Community of lutruwita and their Elders as the traditional owners of this island.
Elizabeth College in the inner city is a co-educational senior secondary college for Years 11 and 12. We offer a diverse and engaging two-year learning program that will prepare you for university, work, or vocational study after year 12. We also care about your wellbeing and will support you to build resilience when meeting new challenges, so you can flourish at college and beyond.> Contact Us
