Year 9 Program

The Year 9 program follows a Big Picture Education framework and offers students a real choice in the kind of middle school education they want to experience. Our aim is to empower students to take charge of their learning in order to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to achieve success beyond high school.

The Year 9 structure consists of four parts:

  • Core studies– English, Maths, Health/PE
  • Advisory – ‘Deep learning’ projects which explore key areas of Science and Humanities.
  • Community Connections – consists of community projects, developing ‘work readiness skills’, shadow days.
  • Electives –choices vary between campuses and according to students needs and interests but may include; working with animals, building and construction, outdoor education, sport, business enterprise, hair & beauty, digital media, digital photography, food technology and visual arts.
