At Year 9 we are preparing our students to become more independent in their learning. We continue to provide connections between their learning and the world around them and support them to become more complex thinkers. We aim to build their self confidence and their ability to make informed choices.
Students all study the core subjects (English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Physical Education and Health Education) and have the opportunity to select electives in The Arts, Technology and French.
Learning at Year 9 is underpinned by authentic experiences across all curriculum areas. Features include:
- Community Leadership program, an integral part of our English curriculum, where students develop and enhance their leadership and communication skills
- Marvellous Melbourne, an experiential learning program in Mathematics and Science
- Excursions and incursions
- “Opportunity Knocks” program to encourage students to begin thinking about their futures and possible careers
