Year 9 and 10 Curriculum Overview

In Years 9 and 10, students study the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and Religious Education, History and Health and Physical Education for a semester.  This is also the start of taking levels of study that link in with subjects in the Senior Years.
Students are able to choose their subjects, including two elective subjects each semester in Year 9. In Year 10, electives are full-year subjects, giving our students greater depth of experience that then connect with Senior Pathway options.
