Inside our Classroom
Years 9 & 10 (Stage 5)

Stage 5 provides a significant opportunity for students to establish a sense of agency over their learning paths. Students elect two subjects for the duration of Years 9 and 10.

Students in Year 9 participate in the NAPLAN testing each year.

For those students identified as capable of accelerating in Mathematics in Year 10, special classes may be timetabled to assist with extra tuition.

From Year 10 all students will have their grades for all courses registered with NESA as part of their Record of School Achievement (RoSA). These results can be accessed through the student’s account online.

Towards the middle of the academic year, a detailed process of preparing students for course selection in Year 11, together with a structured Careers Programmes and individual interviews enables informed decision making by students for their senior years.
