Elective Subject Information

Elective Subjects for Years 9 and 10

Elective Subjects are studied in Year 9 and 10. The wide range of subjects studied by students during Years 7 and 8 should enable them to make well-informed choices for the next two years of the Junior School. Choices should be based on interest in the subject.

Every effort will be made to ensure the students' requests for electives will be met. It must be understood, however, that classes cannot be established if demand is insufficient. Students will be asked to nominate seven elective subjects and rank them in their preferred order, however only three electives will be studied in during the year.
