This is a friendly reminder that there are subject selection pop in sessions for parents and students of Year 8 on Tuesday 15 June from 6pm – 6:30pm. This is an optional session for any students or parents who have individual questions for Heads of Department following reading the subject selection slides and booklet.
Information on the process is included below as per the article that has been in Nurrunga for the last three weeks.
Subject Selection Process for Stage 5
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.
Click here for the booklet that outlines the pattern of study that students undertake over Years 9 and 10, including the elective subjects available.
Initially, the College is delivering the information for Subject Selection Information session via the Waverley College website. Click here to access Subject Selection Information.
Please allocate a time during this term to sit down with your son and complete the following:
- Go to the Year 8 tab when clicking on this Subject Selection Information Link;
- Read through the relevant pages when clicking on this Stage 5 Subject Selection Information Booklet.
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.
