Year 9 2016 Subject
Selection
St Peter’s College Cranbourne
The Year 9 Program
Key considerations in the design of our Year 9 Program:
▪ Year 9 students must be enabled to take responsibility for tailoring their
course of study within clear and reasonable guidelines.
▪ Some choice of electives enables students to explore which studies are
most relevant to their educational and vocational needs.
▪ A series of minimal requirements must be established to ensure that
students do not deny themselves access to future learning opportunities.
When students are selecting their Year 9 elective subjects they need to think
about the following:
▪ Which units are most relevant to my interests and intended career path?
▪ Which units will help me to build my skills and talents?

Other Details:
▪ Students who completed Literacy Development instead of LOTE in
Year 8 will not be required to do LOTE in Year 9. These students will
continue to receive Literacy Support instead of LOTE studies. This
will take the form of a Foundation English class which will
supplement their Core English studies
▪ Mathematics enhancement and support will be available to students
through their classroom teacher and also through the Mathematics
Help classes running each Monday after school.
▪ At both campuses the eventual elective units which run in 2015 will
be dependent on the number of enrolments in each subject.
