Year 9 Electives 2021

Welcome to our stage 5 (Year 9 and 10) elective program for 2021. This program is designed to give students the opportunity to explore and discover beyond the core curriculum.

Elective choices are stepping stones to further important decisions about what students may want to study in Year 11 and 12 and what they may want to do when they leave school.

In Year 9 you are also required to study three elective courses:

  • Two 200-hour courses
  • One 100-hour course

200-hour elective courses go for two years so students will study them in Year 9 and continue them in Year 10.

100-hour elective courses are for one year duration only. Students will study one 100-hour elective course in Year 9 and choose a different 100-hour elective course next year to study in Year 10.

All our 100-hour electives are based on an Inquiry Based Learning philosophy. This is a highly engaging, student centered method. It aims to foster future learning skills and provide opportunities for students to apply and practice these skills through real world, personally meaningful projects.
