In Middle School subjects are based on the Australian Curriculum and/or the ISQ guidelines. The curriculum has been developed in order to cater for the needs, interests and abilities of all students and to provide opportunities for them to develop to their full potential.
The following subjects are studied as ‘Core’ subjects:
- Foundations (Christian Studies)
- Humanities (A combined English and History class)
- Core Physical Education (CPE)
Sport is undertaken by all Middle School students on Fridays after lunch. It involves a range of interschool team sport competitions which are alternated with recreational options.
Students complete one term of each of the following skill subject rotations:
At Year 9, students continue with their Core subjects of Foundations, Humanities, Mathematics, Science, Sport and HPE. However, they then choose three ‘Elective’ subjects from the Year 7 and 8 ‘Skill Subject’ options listed above. Added to this list of options is Extended HPE as well as French. Students generally remain with these choices through to the end of Year 10.
Over the two years, students confirm their choices and develop skills in their chosen fields in preparation for Senior School. There is some flexibility to allow for change as choices and preferences are refined and confirmed. This is a time to benefit from strengths and improve in any areas of weakness, a time of change and growth.
