Year 9

Outline

In the design of the program at this level, the following considerations were seen as being of key importance:

  • Programs at this level must enable students to take responsibility for tailoring their course of study within clear and reasonable guidelines
  • Students should be able to explore which studies are most relevant to their educational and vocational needs, therefore there must be some choice of electives
  • Ensuring that students do not deny themselves access to future learning opportunities, a series of minimum requirements must be established

These are:

  • Technology/1 unit
  • The Arts/1 unit

* All students (with the exception of Special Needs students) must study Languages in Semester One and Semester Two of Year Nine.
