Year 9 Curriculum


As students begin to grow and discover more about themselves and areas of interest, we encourage them to take some more control of their learning by choosing from a wide array of elective subjects from the various domains of learning; The Arts, English, Maths, Science, Humanities, Technology, Languages, and Health/PE. While literacy and numeracy remain a core focus through compulsory studies of English and Maths, our wide range of elective subjects ensure that sutdents are able to personalise their learning in subject areas they are intereested in knowing more about.

 

Connections

 

We also have a dedicated program at Year 9 called 'Connections'. As part of Melba College's promise to provide students with opportunites to overcome challenges, Year 9 students will be completing a placement of Community Service within the school or local community. The goal of the program is to build connections for our students with an emphasis on developing some of our core school values including Resilience and Integrity. While at school, student work through a program that builds study skills and career pathways including using the Morisby online portal to ensure they aer ready to enter the relevant senior school pathway.
