Year 9 Program

The core curriculum in Year 9 continues to develop and extend the skills and knowledge base that students will need in order to succeed in VCE and the wide range of elective choices fosters the students’ ability to pursue their own individual interests and talents.

Year 9 students undertake the New Horizons Program. Electives are organised as semester-long units. Students are required to select five elective units each semester. Over the year students must choose:

• Four units in total of Jewish Studies and Hebrew

Alongside the academic curriculum there are additional opportunities to engage in Science Robotics, Performing Arts including Music, Sports, Outdoor Education, Debating, Interfaith and other programs. All our students are encouraged to continue to participate in various music ensembles, bands, jazz and rock groups, as well as regular School productions.
