Year 10 Towards VCE

In Year 10 the focus is on consolidating and extending academic skills and preparing for the more rigorous demands of VCE.

Consolidating and extending academic skills

With the assistance of comprehensive counselling, students are given the opportunity to build a course of study that takes into account their interests, strengths and career needs, and allows them to explore their chosen areas in greater depth. For example, a student interested in pursuing a science program in VCE, will have the opportunity to study elective units in Physics, Chemistry and Biology as part of their Year 10 program.

As well as the core and elective programs, Year 10 students with the appropriate academic and organisational skills are encouraged to select a VCE study. Satisfactory completion of this study is accredited towards the requirements of VCE.

All Year 10 students participate in a tertiary visitation program where they visit universities and TAFE institutes throughout the year.  Students also undertake work experience and a driver education program during Year 10.
