Year 8

This year students continue to study courses, and at the end of the year choose the electives they will study in Years 9 and 10.

Middle years

Our teaching strategies recognise each individual’s changing emotional, intellectual and behavioural needs in the middle years.

Getting involved

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

Essential secondary science assessment

All Year 8 students in NSW sit the essential secondary science assessment (ESSA) in term 4. The results of this test help our teachers design programs that improve learning outcomes for all students in the area of science.

Choosing electives

At the end of Year 8, students will need to select the elective subjects they will study in Years 9 and 10. When making their decisions, students might consider their interests, what they’re good at, their past performance and future career options.
