Year 10

Opportunity and becoming VCE ready

Our Year 10 program educates the whole person – emotionally, socially, intellectually and physically. Studies support the transition to becoming more independent and mature learners.

Students are encouraged to be involved in sport, ensembles, performances and leadership opportunities such as Peer Support, School Parliamentarians and Community Service.

Year 10 students have the opportunity to select from a range of elective subjects as well as VCE, VET or VSL.
