Year 9 2018-08-22T02:28:03+00:00

In Year 9 students are required to study compulsory subjects and elective subjects. A CORE subject is one that all students must study. ELECTIVE subjects are chosen by students and should be determined on the basis of the students’ skills, interests and possible career ambitions. This core and elective approach will lead into a broad range of options for future Later Years studies.The COMPULSORY (CORE) subjects in Year 9 are:

– English: full year
– Mathematics: full year
– Health and Physical Education: full year (classes are gender specific)
– Science: full year
– SOSE: full year

The ELECTIVE SUBJECT choices in Year 9 can be taken from the following learning areas: Arts and Technology. Students must select 2 subjects from this group (except if studying German, GELC, EAL Transition or Excellence in Sport)

Languages other than English (LOTE): Students who wish to study German must select this subject in both semesters (Academic Achievers must select this class)

Excellence in Sport (AFL and Soccer): Students must select this subject in both Semesters

Excellence in Sports, Community Engagement Program and SEAL are select entry and based on application and/or assessment

Students are not permitted to choose both Excellence in Sport & Outdoor Education. One week per term is dedicated to our ‘Project Week’. This is an integrated curriculum approach to teaching and learning which supports the general themes being studied and provides an opportunity for students to work in mixed groups towards a common goal. Our iPad Program supports teaching and learning across the Junior School as each student has access to their own device in a wireless environment.
