Yr 9 Overview PDF Print E-mail

Year 9 is the first year that students study elective subjects.. Students also have a range of extra-curricular activities that they can choose to be involved in.

Getting Involved

There are great opportunities for students to participate in extra-curricular events. These include competitions, exhibitions, sport, performances and special events. Student Leadership Programs provide many activities that broaden your child's experience at school.

National Test

This year, all Year 9 students sit the National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) test in numeracy, reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar. There are five tests altogether and one of the maths tests requires the use of a scientific calculator.

The results of the NAPLAN test help teachers meet the individual literacy and numeracy needs of students. You will receive a written report of your child's achievement in the NAPLAN test.

Careers Advice

Our school careers adviser can help students make educational choices, define a career direction and prepare for future study and training, based on aptitude and aspirations. There are many different study options available so  it is important to make an early start and seek advice.
