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