As your sons will be entering Year 9 next year, for the first time they will have some choice over their pattern of study for Years 9 and 10. Over Years 9 and 10, apart from the mandatory subjects, the students study two additional subjects commonly referred to as electives.
This Subject Selection Information Booklet Stage 5 (click here) outlines the pattern of study that the students undertake over Years 9 and 10, including the elective subjects available.
Initially, the College is delivering the information for Subject Selection Information sessions via our subject selection website (click here).
Please allocate a time during this term to sit down with your son and complete the following:
- Go to the Year 8 tab on the subject selection website (click here) and view the slides for each subject.
- Read the relevant pages in this Subject Selection Information Booklet Stage 5 (click here).
In Week 9 this term on Tuesday 15 June, Heads of Department will be available in classrooms onsite from 6pm-6:30pm for you to pop in with any individual questions that you may have following viewing the slides. Specific locations will be provided closer to the time.
The actual subject selection process will be done online early next term. Students will receive an email with a link and a password to access the system in mid-June. Students should complete their subject selections online, print the confirmation and submit this in hard copy form via the box outside Ms Lamonica’s office on Level 1 by Thursday 22 July.
Details on how to do this process will be sent out closer to the time.
The most important thing is that the students are selecting elective subjects that they will enjoy. These are important decisions to make as they will influence the staffing and resourcing decisions the College has to make for the 2022 timetable.
