 Curriculum Years 7 to 8

The Years 7 to 8 Curriculum is designed to facilitate a smooth transition into secondary school whist introducing the students to a broad base of subjects. The curriculum is structured around Core subjects and Specialist Rotational subjects.

In Years 7 to 8, the programs of study are based on the Australian Curriculum. The Religious Education Program is based on the Archdiocesan Religious Education Guidelines.

All Year 7 and 8 students are part of a vertical Pastoral Care (PC) group. (In 2017, PC groups will be Year 7 only).

The PC group meet each morning to start the day, receive daily messages and have the roll marked.
