Senior School

The Senior School provides an adult learning environment. The focus is to create a positive culture and maximise student learning and success. Associated with this culture are high expectations, which we have of all our students.

 

The 2018 Senior School Course Guide is used by students currently in Year 9 to Year 11 to examine career and study pathways and to make subject choices for 2018.

 

 

Year 10


All students in Year 10 will undertake a program that involves studies in the following eight areas of learning. This program leads students on to a full range of choices in the VCE and then to Tertiary study or employment. It will consist of:
