Year 8
Year 8 students have entered the second phase of Stage 4 and study the following mandatory subjects defined by the New South Wales Education Standards Authority (NESA).

English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Personal Development/Heath/ Physical Education, Technology, Language (French), Visual Arts, Music.

There is a Talented Technology class and there is also an  Academic Selective class. Other students are grouped as mixed ability classes. In forming these classes,  student gender and learning & development needs are taken into account to carefully arrange the best mix in each class. The Academic Selective class and the mixed ability classes remain together for all subjects except for the Technology and Visual Arts where they are divided into smaller class groups. The Talented Technology class remains together only for Technology.

The Assessment Policy is available for download and contains a summary of all formal assessment undertaken by students during Year 8. Examinations within lessons are part of the assessment program for Year 8 students.

Parents and Students are encouraged to regularly check  this page for relevant posts. Teachers will increasingly add task notifications that provide details and requirements for assessments to this page.
