Year 9

Students in Year 9 are able to choose elective subjects that foster their individual interests, talents and encourage ambition. Students select elective subjects for a semester, timetabled alongside core subjects as outlined in this handbook. Students in Year 9 participate in the Challenge Program. The Challenge Program offers a dynamic and memorable learning experience for the Year 9 cohort. This unique program encourages greater responsibility for independent learning and reflection, development of team work strategies, a sense of belonging and promotes an increased awareness of diversity within our community.

Year 10

Building upon the Year 9 program, Year 10 studies support the students’ transition to becoming more independent and mature learners. 

Students are encouraged to supplement classwork through participation in extra-curricular activities including sport (both House and school), Music ensembles, Drama performances, and leadership opportunities. These contributions are acknowledged in Semester reports.  

Students are also encouraged to:

  • become Peer Support leaders to Year 7 students
