Year 8 to Year 9 Subject Selection

The program for Mainstream students at Year 9 consists of CORE subjects:

English, Maths, Humanities, Science, LOTE, PE, Information Technology (one semester), The Arts (one semester). Students also choose from a list of Community Electives.

The Community Focus Program consists of a range of electives, which are different from traditional subjects in a number of ways.

  • All electives involve significant hands on learning through planned practical activities.
  • All electives are community-centered and ask you to “give back” to your community in some way.
  • Students will be encouraged to plan, run, organise tasks, make decisions, work in teams, think about their community and beyond and so develop a broad range of personal skills.

Please find the Year 9 Elective Handbook below. Applications for Year 9 Electives begin on the 21st of August and close on the 26th of August.
