Considerations when choosing Year 8 electives
Students should also consider whether any particular unit:
- interests them
- will extend their knowledge
- is deemed a wise choice by parents and teachers
Before making any choices for a particular semester, it is vital that students view the individual subject information.
Our timetable is constructed based on students’ choices each year. The ability to accommodate a change of mind may be possible but will be limited by timetable and class size constraints.
Continuous monitoring of students’ learning is a vital critical aspect of education learning. Students undertake a variety of coursework that develops their skills and knowledge. Online continuous reporting ensures that students and parents have access to assessment task grades and feedback in real time.
The semester report produced at the end of each semester provides a summative indication of each student’s achievement according to the Victorian Curriculum standards.
