Years 7 - 9
Stretton State College has implemented the Australian Curriculum in the key learning areas of English, maths and science and humanities. In junior secondary, these subjects are known as the "CORE" subjects.
As well as an emphasis on the core learning areas, students at Stretton State College have the opportunity to study a number of subjects through the following learning areas. These include:
Information communication technology (ICTs) are utilised within all key learning areas.
- Health and physical education
- Technology - design technology and digital technology
- Languages (Italian)
- The Arts - music, drama and visual art
The Australian Curriculum across Years 7 - 9 assists students to develop their ability to take positive action for well-being; relate and communicate well with others; pose questions and solve problems; make informed decisions and act responsibly. It engages students more purposefully with the discipline knowledge, understanding and skills of the eight learning areas of the Australian Curriculum.
Students in years 9 have the opportunity to choose a number of elective subjects. Elective subjects allow students to choose areas of study that are of interest to them. Choosing subjects is an important part of career planning for all students, particularly where pre-requisites are required for senior school subjects, or for university and/or tertiary courses.
For more information on specific subjects, refer to the Stretton State College Course Guide.
College Assessment Policy
The Stretton State College Assessment Policy, which is specific to the Illaweena Campus has been developed to ensure there is consistency, clarity and equity in relation to assessment for students and teachers; they should feel secure in the knowledge that every student in each year level can access equitable and comparable levels of support. The policy assists students and parents understand the academic requirements of students as they move through their schooling.
