Year 7 into Year 8 Information


In Year 8, students have an increasing responsibility for their subject choices as they progress through the middle secondary years. Students consider their interests, their abilities and their career and senior schooling goals when making choices. The range of subject choices caters for students experiencing learning difficulties and also makes accelerated learning possible.

Students in Year 8 will continue to experience a range of subjects from each of the Curriculum Domains, building on from the Year 7 program. Students will undertake 7 core subjects as well as have the opportunity to select subjects of their own choice from The Arts and Technology curriculum domains.
