Students in the Middle Years learn in a team with two teachers providing integrated, purposeful and relevant learning.
The essential elements of the Middle Years program are:
Students undertake Progressive Achievement Tests (PAT) each year and achieve goals based around their Negotiated Learning Plans.
The year 9 curriculum is organized into Central Studies, Languages and Electives.
Central Studies at year 9 incorporates the compulsory subjects of the Australian Curriculum learning: Mathematics, Science, English, History, and Health in a series of thematic units that provide meaningful and purposeful learning for all students. Students also develop specific essential skills through rehearsal and consolidation.
Full time students in year 9 are required to do Central Studies plus 2 electives per semester.
Electives are semester length except languages and music which are full year subjects
