Years 8 & 9
The College curriculum has been designed to encourage students to acquire depth in learning experiences, as a foundation from which future career options may be explored. The aim is for each girl to choose a course of study which will cater to her individual interests and abilities.
In Years 8 and 9, students will study a common core of subjects –English, Mathematics, Religion, Science, Humanities, Healthy Fearless Women Project, Reading (Year 8) and Careers (Year 9). Each student then has the opportunity to choose the balance of her course from elective subjects designed to appeal to her particular skills and abilities, encouraging her to engage with subjects she finds relevant and meaningful.
After completing the common course in Year 7, students must make some elective choices for Years 8 and 9. A student entering Year 8 must study seven core subjects and select three electives.
A detailed description of each subject offered in Years 9 and 10 can be found in the Curriculum Handbook.
