At Brunswick Secondary College Year 9 students complete a core (compulsory) curriculum of the following subjects: English, Mathematics, Humanities, Science and Health/PE.
In addition, Brunswick Secondary College offers a program of specialist subjects to students as part of its commitment to engaging and extending students in their middle years of schooling.
Specialist subjects enable students to enrich their education by specialising in areas in which they have a particular interest or talent. This flexibility in the learning program promotes deeper engagement and supports higher achievement. Specialist subjects also allow students in Year 9 the opportunity to mix with students from the other Year 9 class groups. Student choices determine which electives will run.
- All specialist specialist subjects are one semester in length with the exception of Bushwhacked and Languages which both run for the entire year. If students choose to study either of these subjects, they will need to select them for both Semester 1 & 2.
This handbook contains descriptions of the specialist being offered for Year 9 students. Students should carefully read the descriptions and discuss these decisions with their parents.
We wish all students every success in making their subject selection and transition to Year 9.
