As a proud member of the ELICOS community in Sydney since 1987, SCE has been an influential place in the lives of the many staff and students who have been a part of the school over the years. As a place of education and growth, SCE strove to fulfil its mission: “to provide an environment in which students of any age are given the support to become capable, confident communicators who flourish and have successful lives as they continue to learn and develop their skills.” We have been touched by the heartfelt comments that we have received from past students and staff about their time at SCE and would like to acknowledge everyone who has contributed to the life of the college over the years. Quality, experience, success and personalised care have been at the heart of SCE and we are confident that these values will live on in the students and staff. We are proud of everything we have achieved and wish everyone who has been a part of this journey, the very best for the future.
