Planning Your Year 10 Program

Entering Year 10 is an exciting time for students as they have a broad range of subjects to choose from. Students entering Year 10 are encouraged to consider   undertaking a VCE or VCAL subject or commencing a VET program as this offers additional opportunities for acceleration. The College also offers an applied learning program at Year 10, Aspire for girls and Connections for boys. In order to make a selection, you should read through the subject descriptions carefully and discuss the various possibilities with career advisors, parents, teachers and other students.  Success is more likely to occur if you enjoy what you are doing. Take advantage of the course counselling sessions to seek clarification, information and ask questions.

The following steps take you through this decisions making process.

Step One: Core Subjects

English:

Students do two units of English, one each semester. They may choose from:

  • English
  • Work Skills English

Mathematics:

Students do two units of Mathematics, one each semester. They may choose from:

  • Mathematics for Methods
  • Mathematics for General
  • Mathematics for Work

Industry and Enterprise:

Students do one unit of Industry and Enterprise in either semester one or semester two.

Step Two: Elective Subjects

Students may choose from a large range of elective subjects. To ensure a board based program we recommend a student program should include at least one subject from each of the Domain areas:

Arts

Health & Physical Education

Humanities & LOTE

Technology

Science

Variation to this can be negotiated with your course counsellor. Students could replace two of their Year 10 electives with a VCE, VET or VCAL study.

Rules for satisfactory completion of Year 10

To satisfactorily complete Year 10, students must satisfactorily complete a minimum of 8 units that must include two (2) English units.
