The Junior Curriculum
The following information is a general guide for parents and students. More detailed information will be provided later in the year, at which time you will be asked to choose courses for Year 9.
The Curriculum Handbook also describes Year 10 courses which will help in the selection for Year 9.
Ako is our connected curriculum model at Years 9-10. It occurs for eight hours per week, generally in the pairings of English/Social Studies and Mathematics/Science. Junior modules (previously named electives) can be either Year 9, Year 10 or mixed. These modules include additional courses in English, Maths, Science and Social Studies. Language is the only compulsory module in Year 9. One module of Health is compulsory in Year 9 and 10. Over the Year 9 and 10 students must also take one Arts and one Technology.
