Year level curriculum

Teaching and Learning

In Years 7 to 10 we teach the Australian Curriculum Framework AusVELS (Victorian Essential Learning Standards). Teachers work collectively to devise study programs that meet the national curriculum standards and are unique to our particular setting. In Years 9 and 10 students can choose from a range of different elective subjects enabling them to further customise their learning experience. In Years 11 and 12 students study the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and we offer a broad range of subjects that students can select from. It is common for students who have demonstrated good learning behaviours to accelerate their VCE program by undertaking a VCE unit in Year 10.  Students can also elect, as part of their program, to study a Vocational Education and Training (VET) subject.
