Pattern of Studies

Year 10 is a significant year as students are introduced to their first compulsory SACE unit and begin to develop study patterns for the Senior School. It is important that subject selections are made with a view to future pathways.

In Year 10 the following core subjects are compulsory within the curriculum:

  • CRAVE
  • English
  • Mathematics
  • History (1 semester)
  • Science
  • Health and Physical Education
  • Personal Learning Plan (1 semester)
  • Mock Interviews

Personal Learning Plan is a SACE Stage 1 subject. Students must achieve a C grade or better to be eligible for their SACE certificate.

Curriculum Pattern

To complete the curriculum pattern, students are required to select four elective subjects, two for each semester. Students wishing to undertake Music or Japanese must have studied these subjects in Year 9. Japanese must be selected for a full year and it is highly recommended that students interested in Music courses undertake two semesters of this subject.

Examinations

The following subjects will include a compulsory examination at the end of each semester with the examination result included in the semester report: English, all levels of Mathematics, Elective PE, Geography, History, Music, Science (except for Essential Science) and Japanese. The purpose of these examinations is to provide students with an opportunity to develop their ability to demonstrate learning under examination conditions. This will help prepare for final examinations in Year 12 subjects and provides the College with evidence of examination performance for future pathways.
