Curriculum Overview

​​​​​​​​​​​Middle Years (Years​ 7 and 8)

In the Middle Years, our curriculum offerings provide students the opportunity to engage in a range of courses to suit all learning pathways.

Students will study seven subjects in each term across Years 7 and 8:
  • Religion, English, Mathematics and Science are compulsory for study across Year 7 and 8
  • History and HPE are compulsory for one semester in both years
  • Students rotate through elective subjects each term over the two years so that all students have the opportunity to engage in all electives twice across the two years of learning.
Detailed inform​​ation about core courses, elective courses and subject pathways can be found in the Year 7 and 8 Subject Handbook​​.​

Lower Senior Years (​Years 9 and 10)

Year 9 provides the opportunity to begin to explore different subject options.  This is further enhanced in Year 10 where students have the opportunity to engage in vocational learning, the world of work or our specially devised Excellence and Extension (EAE) programs.  We make every effort and commitment to offer a broad range of subjects in order to cater for the individual needs of students enrolled at the College.  Students will study seven subjects in each semester across Years 9 and 10:

  • ​Religion, English, Mathematics and Science are compulsory for study over all semesters
  • History and HPE are compulsory for one semester in both years
  • Students are therefore able to choose two elective subjects each semester over the two years.  We strongly encourage students to choose a range of subjects in order to give them a broad and balanced education across a range of learning areas.​

Detailed inform​​ation about core courses, elective courses and subject pathways can be found in the Year 9 and 10 Subject Handbook​​.

Senior Years (Years​ 11 and 12)

Senior Studies covers both OP eligible ​and Non-OP eligible subjects, and allows for VET options to cater for the wide variety of pathway options such as the world of work, apprenticeships/traineeships, TAFE or University study. We have an extensive selection of OP and Non-OP subjects for students to choose from, covering all learning areas.

Our industry standard Hospitality Caterin​g facility and Graphics and Computer Aided design studio enables much scope in the design technologies areas; as well as newly built and designed Science laboratories where opportunities such as Certificate I in Laboratory Technician courses can be studied. Robotics is a key feature in our Science, Mathematics and Design Technology areas.

Vocational Education and Training courses, as well as School Based Traineeships and Apprenticeships (SAT’s) are offered according to student interests and career aspirations. Our unique individualised programs provide a personal subject and career approac​​h for VET and SAT driven students.

Senior students will also have sp​​ecific tuition in preparing them for the QCS Test and examinations.

The Year 11 and 12 Subject Handbook​ is designed to help students plan their course of study and to allow them to experience different subjects in more depth so they can plan their career pathway effectively.​

Learning Enha​​ncement

Support is given to s​tudents to r​​ealise their potential by providing a structured system of assistance to students who require further support to enable them to better access the curriculum, and for those who require extension to their curriculum.

Our weekly Homework Club assists students in managing their time as well as offering them on the spot assistance with any learning queries.
