Level of study: Primary and High School
The Cathedral College Middle School provides a rich and meaningful learning environment for students in Year 7, 8 and 9 characterized by an effective pedagogy developed collaboratively by teachers in response to the Australian Curriculum, the needs of the students and the expectations of parents.
The Middle School Program strives to provide opportunities for our Year 7, 8 and 9 students to become reflective and self-directed learners through innovative and rigorous curricular and co-curricular experiences within our faith community.
All students in the Middle School (Year 7-9) are allocated a Core Class and a Core Teacher. Core Teachers work closely with students, other teachers of the Core Classes and parents to ensure the academic needs of the individual student are met during this crucial time in the student’s educational journey.
Students entering Year 7 do not have the opportunity to choose electives. All students study a suite of subjects that provide them with a broad range of options when choosing electives in future year levels. Students in Year 7 study the following subjects for the duration of the year:
Religious Education, English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, and Health and Physical Education.
They also study the following subjects for 1 semester: Business and Digital Technologies, Industrial Technology and Design, Hospitality and Textiles, Visual Arts, Performing Arts, and Japanese.
Students entering Year 8 and 9 will study ‘Core Subjects’ of Religious Education, English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Social Science, as well as three (year duration) elective subjects chosen from The Arts, Business and Information Technology, Food and Textiles Technology, Industrial Technology and Design, Japanese and Physical Education.
Students entering Year 10 will study ‘Core Subjects’ of Religious Education, English, Mathematics and Science as well as three (year duration) elective subjects chosen from The Arts, Business and Information Technology, Food and Textiles Technology, Humanities and Social Science, Industrial Technology and Design, Japanese and Physical Education.
Students and parents are required to read this handbook carefully before making a final decision about a preferred course of study. Please note any recommendations that have been made in relation to Mathematics, English and Science for Year 10.
It is important to note that choosing a particular elective in Year 8 or 9 does not lock a student into continuing that elective in Year 9 or 10.
