Year 9 & 10
All Middle Secondary students continue to study the compulsory curriculum areas of Mathematics, English, Science, Physical Education and Humanities. In Years 9 & 10, students commence their personalised learning by electing which other subjects they would like to study further (i.e Agriculture, Music, Tech Studies, Performing Arts, and more).
All Year 9 Students are also required to complete The Rite Journey. This program is scheduled over two lessons a week, is delivered in single-sex groups and develops qualities in our students for personal growth, emotional intelligence and community spirit. Towards the end of the year, students attend a camp where there is a focus on pulling together the key elements of their rite journey.
In Year 10, along with completing the requirements of the Australian Curriculum, students begin their journey through SACE. This begins with the completion of the PLP (Personal Learning Plan). In doing PLP, students consider their aspirations and research their choices for career, training and further study. This helps them map out a part of their immediate future by setting goals and establishing the subjects that they would like to study as a Senior Secondary student.
The Futures Planning Handbook has further information about the curriculum and course offerings for all students.
