All courses of study offered by the College are endorsed by NESA (National Educational Standards Authority). In Years 9 and 10 English and Mathematics classes are graded, and students in Science, Australian History and Australian Geography classes are clustered based on their ability. Students must study one Mathematics course (this is mandatory).
Assessment & Reporting
All subjects completed by the end of Stage 5 contribute to the mandatory hours of study set by NESA. Each course sets regular homework for students in Years 9 and 10. An assessment handbook is distributed to students at the beginning of the year indicating the approximate due dates for all assessments. Examinations form part of this assessment. An Effort & Behaviour report is emailed home each school term and semester reports are produced at the completion of each semester.
