Year 9 is a time for consolidation, development and preparation for Year 10. The curriculum structure at this level ensures that all students are exposed to a broad range of subjects in the electives areas thereby providing an opportunity for specialisation in areas of interest. Work at this level can be challenging – the school expects students to strive to achieve personal excellence and to make full use of the resources within the school.
Year 10 is a time for development and preparation for the VCE and VCAL years. It is in this year that many students will make important and long lasting decisions about the future – the subjects in which they intend to specialize in Years 11 & 12 and perhaps some choice in their intended career path. The curriculum structure at this level ensures that all students are exposed to a broad range of subjects in the electives areas thereby providing an excellent preparation for their next year while still allowing for some specialisation in areas of interest.
In order to maintain a balanced curriculum and to ensure students experience a breadth of subjects, we have implemented the following subject selection guidelines:
PLEASE NOTE: Students are not required to complete Language as a compulsory subject at Years 9 and 10. However, students must keep in mind that if there is ANY chance they will want to study Language at VCE level, they will need to continue to study it at Year 9 and Year 10. Students who begin Language study at Year 9 and 10 will be required to continue studying it for the full year.
