Year 10 is the beginning of the senior years of learning where students start making decisions about future learning and work.
Learning in Year 10 aims to develop and deepen student understanding of important ideas and processes, equipping them to transfer their learning in meaningful and effective ways and become life-long learners.
Each Year 10 student is supported in their learning by their Advisory teacher. The Advisory teacher focuses on student wellbeing and builds a sense of belonging as a member of the year 10 learning community.
The structures and curriculum in Year 10 are built around three core principles:
Engaged and sustained learning requires learners to constantly see the value and relevance of their work. Teachers work with students identifying and developing challenges that are meaningful and important.
Continually challenging students to deepen their learning and improve their performance in a safe and supportive environment develops deeper understanding. The work is challenging, and achievable through effort.
The quality of relationships has a strong influence on the quality of the learning. Students and teachers work together in collaborative teams across the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Health Science and PLP, establishing and maintaining strong relationships.
In addition to the core subjects students in year 10 will develop specialised skills in one or more of the following learning areas:
Within each of these learning areas students can choose from the options under the heading Year 10 Specialised Subjects below. A full-time load is the equivalent of seven subjects per semester.
