YEAR NINE

At Sale College we encourage a balanced approach to curriculum delivery that combines a mixture of core and elective units at Year 9.

At Sale College we encourage a balanced approach to curriculum delivery that combines a mixture of core and elective units at Year 9, to ensure breadth and depth in learning together with the opportunity for students to select elective units that are based on learning strengths (intelligences) and needs.

We offer a wide range of units to ensure that students are given every opportunity to develop their intellectual, personal and social competencies. Elective choices should reflect student intelligences, learning and thinking styles, interests and needs. This will help to achieve the best possible learning outcomes for all students.

Consideration should be given to developing general future needs around strengths but we do not encourage specialization which may restrict options in the future if a student has a change of mind.

The Year 9 curriculum is delivered by a small core of teachers who specialise in teaching at only one year level and as a result combine pastoral care and curriculum in a manner which is best suited to the needs of the student.

Students undertake a period of Physical Activity each week. This time is used to experience a range of activities outside the general school program, use local facilities and be physically active on a regular basis.
