Curriculum

The College undertook a review of our timetable structure during the first half of 2018. From the review it was agreed that we would move from three 92 minute ‘blocks’ per day to four 70 minute ‘blocks’ of learning each day and a daily 15-minute wellbeing session.

The College delivers the Victorian Curriculum F-10; a Foundation to Year 10 curriculum that provides a single, coherent and comprehensive set of prescribed content and common achievement standards, which schools use to plan student learning programs, assess student progress and report to parents. Further information on the Victorian Curriculum can be found here.

Students in Years 8, 9 and 10 have elective choices. The electives that we offer can be found here: Course Selections
