Year 7

Successful transition of Year 7 students from Primary School with a curriculum that offers as broad a range of studies

Core Program

In the design of the Core Program at this level, the following considerations are seen as being of key importance:

  • The successful transition of Year 7 students from Primary School
  • The curriculum must offer as broad a range of studies as possible from each of the Learning Areas (LAs)
  • Special emphasis on literacy and numeracy at these levels; Consequently English and Mathematics have been allotted additional time within the curriculum
  • All students must have the opportunity to develop their Information Technology skills within the context of the computer network available at St. Peter’s College
  • All students must be given the opportunity to study Languages, French or Japanese. For many students, Year 7 will be their first year of study of these languages. After undertaking an introductory course in both languages in orientation, Year 7 students will be invited to study either French or Japanese
