Subject selection 2016

30 July 2015

This term, students from years 8-11 will be involved in the exciting – and sometimes challenging – process of selecting subjects for 2016.

For students at every level, the advice is simple – select subjects that you enjoy, in which you can be successful and that will complement the future pathway(s) you may want to pursue.

Students have access to a range of resources including the Senior Certificates Booklet (also available on SIMON and PAM) for students studying VCE, VET or VCAL studies in 2016. The Year 10 Subject Handbook and Year 9 Elective Guide will be available via SIMON and PAM early next week.

They can also seek support from pastoral care teachers, subject teachers, via the pathways team – in particular, Mrs Pendlebury and Mrs Fisher – or by seeing Ms Vergara or me in the teaching & learning office.

All year levels (with the exception of year 11 and 12 VCAL) will select subjects online. Once students select their subjects online, print off their preference receipt, complete it with student and parent signatures and submit it to the central collection box in the administration building by the deadline (see below). Boarding students will need to email their preference receipts to their parents to obtain signatures and/or an email confirming parental support for their selections before submitting these to the collection box.

Below are the key subject selection dates for each 2015 year level:
