Our School Years 9 and 10

In Years 9 and 10, students explore and develop their talents by choosing electives from a diverse range of subjects together with a core curriculum. 

Year 9 Program

During Year 9 students complete a semester-long subject titled “Trek”. Symbolic of the learning challenge ahead of them, students embark on an enquiry-based journey (Know, Think, Create and Connect) as they are challenged to work towards a personal goal of their choosing. 

Students complete hands-on activities in small groups, learning to use new and old technologies such as 3D printers and laser cutters as well as common hand tools. They learn design principles and apply their knowledge to interesting tasks.
 
Skills developed through the first two aspects of the program are put to use in the final aspect, Community Engagement, where students work on a project that has some connection to the broader community either through directly working with an external agency or creating their own social enterprise.

Please note:

  • Electives may be either for a semester or an entire year.
