Curriculum Years 9 to 10

​The Years 9 to 10 Curriculum is designed to prepare students for their Senior years. Subjects studied at this time help to inform students about possible careers for the future, and are not intended to lock them into a pathway. Students are reminded to select subjects based on these questions:

  • What am I good at;
  • What do I enjoy;
  • ​And, are there subjects which match my current interests or possible career/work goals.
The curriculum is structured around Core subjects and Specialist Rotational subjects. The programs of study are based on the Australian Curriculum. The Religious E​ducation Program is based on the Archdiocesan Religious Education Guidelines.
