Our school timetable is organised around seven subjects each semester. A semester is half a year or six months.
The structure focuses on eight curriculum Learning Areas, providing students with an excellent coverage of a broad range of subjects.
Students select six-month long semester units. These units are targeted at specific year levels, each progressively more complex. Students with exceptional abilities may enrol in subjects of a higher year level, and when in Year 10 may enrol in Year 11 subjects, subject to timetabling ability. Students and parents who wish to make this choice should contact the timetabling Deputy Principal.
To see the actual choices a subject selection form should be consulted.
Provides students with opportunities to develop their knowledge of core subjects while also pursuing studies in areas of particular interest. English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Social Sciences (HUM) and HPE are core subjects. These subjects have embedded units of ICT. Students must also select four electives.
Students will study the core units of English, Mathematics, Science and Geography and select their other elective subjects based on their study plans for Year 11 and 12 or career aspirations. The focus of all subjects is preparation for Years 11 and 12. Students also develop an understanding and skills in health and welfare issues, study to prepare them for the world of work, and for planning their career pathways.
