Year Groups - Year 9

Year 9 is the first year that students study elective subjects. Students have chosen some of their own subjects for the first time in their school life.  

Students in Year 9 can continue to be involved in, or nominate for the first time their participation in the Student Representative Council. 

Getting involved

There are great opportunities for students to participate in extra-curricular activities. These include competitions, exhibitions, sport, performances and special events. Student leadership programs provide many activities that broaden your child's experience at school.

National test

All Year 9 students sit for the National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) test in May. There are five tests covering numeracy, reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar. One of the numeracy tests requires the use of a calculator. The results of the NAPLAN test help teachers meet the individual literacy and numeracy needs of students. You will receive a report of your child's achievement in the NAPLAN test.

See NAPLAN- literacy and numeracy (also in community languages).

Careers advice

Year 9 is also a year that some of our students start to look at other learning opportunities through our school careers adviser. Our Careers Advisor can help students make educational choices, start to work out a realistic career path and prepare for future study and training. There are many different study options available to students so it is very important to seek advice.
