Year 9 Curriculum

Year 9 Curriculum

In Year 9 students begin to target their learning through the elective program.

The Year 9 curriculum is structured along the lines of the Victorian Curriculum and includes the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, History, and Geography (one semester each), Personal Health and Physical Education, with the addition of Personal Development, Religious Education and Job Ready. In order to complete the core elements of the curriculum, students will have the opportunity to make their first mandated elective choice between two Commerce (Civics) subjects.

In addition to the core curriculum, students will take their first steps at individualising their learning experience by choosing from a suite of elective subjects ranging from the Arts to Languages to Information Technology and Hospitality.  Please note the running of elective subjects will be dependent on demand, timetabling and staffing matrices.  

At the end of his Year 9 experience a student will have a clearer sense of where his passions and enthusiasms lie and be better prepared for the next steps in his learning journey.
