“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom” (Aristotle)
As the first year in the three-year Senior Schooling journey, the focus of Year 10 is each girl exploring who she is as an individual, so that over the next two years she can lead others; in Year 11 by leading the cohort and in Year 12 being the leaders of the school. As young women, we want each girl to develop her confidence, find her voice, discover what it is that she is passionate about and begin to explore the world around her.
Year 10 Retreat 2019
In Year 10, students continue a course of study commenced in Year 9. The range of subjects provides foundations for life-long learning and is designed to meet the diverse interests of our students. They encourage inquiry and creativity, the joy of discovery, a love of learning and the continual construction of knowledge based on academic learning and real-life experiences.
Students are required to study a core curriculum – English, Mathematics, Science, History, Health and Physical Education, Religious Education – as well as three elective subjects. The elective subjects provide students with opportunities to explore their interests and abilities and may indeed help determine future learning pathways. LEAP English, LEAP Science and Advanced Mathematics and alternatives are offered to students who have proven academic achievement in these areas and are keen to meet the challenge of an accelerated course. The Year 10 curriculum also includes Careers Education, which develops students’ awareness of how to achieve their goals.
