Junior Secondary

Year 7 & 8

The curriculum is set for all Junior Secondary students.

English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, Health and Physical Education, and German are all studied for a full year, whereas Technologies and the Arts are all completed for part of the year.

Students undertake STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) lessons as a combined Science and Mathematics curriculum across the week. These lessons occur in the $3.5 million building that was opened in 2020, with five purpose-built STEM classrooms. Our staff are committed to innovative pedagogies in this area and, as a school, we participate in the STEM Ambassadors Program, STEM 500 and Girls in STEM.

All Junior Secondary classes are completed in Roll Class groups.

All Junior Secondary students are invited to participate in the relevant year level camp during the year.

Our custom is for Year 7 students to attend an aquatics camp in Term 1, and for Year 8 students to attend an outdoor challenge camp, at Woodhouse, in Term 2.

Both camps are designed to allow new students the opportunity to establish and build relationships with peers and Clare High School staff, as well as to develop their skills in a range of challenging, outdoor activities.

The Curriculum Handbook has further information about the curriculum and course offerings for all students.
