Our curriculum guide is to help our students make the best subject choices to meet their particular needs.

We recommend studying the course offerings very closely and fully discuss these with parents and teachers and the school’s guidance staff if necessary.

Help is available from parents, subject teachers, our Deans, the Transition-Careers Staff, our Form Teachers, and the Guidance Counsellor.

The resource identifies commonly used words in assessments from Year 9 to Year 13 in each subject area and provides a description of the actions each word requires. This includes key words students should know for their external examinations.
