For the parents/caretakers of Year 7

The Year 7’s are about to make their subject selections for Year 8. The Junior Secondary Handbook is available online via our school website.  Subject selections will be open from Thursday August 24 and will close September 7. Students will make their selection during their Alex and Me program. For the most part, the year 8 program is an extension of the foundation development from Year 7. The difference in their program will be in two curriculum areas – The Arts and Technologies. Students will study a semester program of Visual Arts and a semester program of Performing Arts. Within the Technologies area, students have a choice of six electives where they can pick one elective for Semester 1 and a second yet different elective for Semester 2. The second elective is entered as the Preference to complete their choices. Please assist your young person to complete selections by the appropriate time – this can be done from home via our website or at school.
