Subject choice selection for the following year is undertaken by students at each Year Level in Term 3.

Year 8 and 9 students will be sent home instructions on how to login to the online subject selection site or return forms to school.

Senior School students will make their subject selection requests and then attend a subject selection interview with teachers to discuss and approve these selections. Availability of subjects on offer may depend on student numbers for each year. Consult the school calendar for correct dates in Term 3 here.
