As your son enters Year 9, he will be asked to choose from a list of elective subjects to provide breadth of study. All boys will undertake a course in English, Mathematics, Humanities, Science, Physical Education and Language Acquisition. He will then choose two semester-long electives from a selection of Design and Technology courses and the Arts. In addition, a Philosophy course is available to be selected in place of either an Arts or Design and Technology course. It is a semester long course and although offered in both semesters, it can only be taken once.
Subject selection will be made online and an email will be sent to the boys to make their selection.

- Language Acquisition
Boys must continue the French or Indonesian course studied in Year 8.
