Welcome to Secondary Years 7-12

Welcome to Secondary. It's an exciting time of your life as you enter the world of timetables, science labs, canteens, lockers, multiple teachers and a whole range of new experiences! During Year 7 you will experience Art, Textiles, Music, Media, Drama, Wood Technology, Food Technology and Visual Communication. In Year 7 you will also write, edit, direct and star in a short film that you will make in English/Humanities during the Movie Magic unit. At the end you will invite your whole family to the Belgrave Cinema for the premiere of your movie.

In Year 8 you will have four theme days and four activity days throughout the year as well as doing all the subjects you did in Year 7. For the very first time, during term 3 you will get to choose from 28 elective subjects to do in Year 9.

In Year 9 you will be doing your own two electives for 4 hours a week each that you chose in Year 8. You will also have less Mathematics and English in Year 9. Also, you will have to choose electives for year 10 and start to make decisions whether to do Pre-Cal or follow the VCE path.

One of the key learning tools for the 21st century learner is the iPad tablet. Immersion in technology does not diminish the vital role of the teacher. To the contrary, it transforms the teacher from a director of learning to a facilitator of learning. Effective teaching and learning with iPads integrates technology into the curriculum anytime, anywhere. Narre Warren South P-12 College understands that technology is constantly changing and that steps must be taken to ensure that our students have the skills and knowledge needed to participate as global citizens of the 21st century. The IPad Program will make possible greater engagement, collaboration and communication among students and between students and the rest of the world. It will support innovative learning, collaborative inquiry and vital skills development, including digital literacy and problem solving. It will also assist teachers with providing personalised, student-centred, and point of need teaching and learning. Please check the ipad program document to learn more. We also have an iPad Acceptable Use Policy Student and Parent Agreement.


Uniform

All students enrolled at Narre Warren South P-12 College are to attend in full school uniform. The purpose of the Narre Warren South P-12 College Uniform is: To create a sense of collective and individual pride in Narre Warren South P-12 College students and the identification with our school. To assist in individual student safety and group security when traveling to and from school and on school excursions. To promote active and safe participation in school life. Issues of equality, health and safety, and expense are also factors that contribute to the establishment of the Uniform Policy.

Students are expected to adhere to the College Uniform Policy at all times. PE uniform may be worn on days where students have a PE class. Students should be wearing either full school uniform OR their PE uniform, not a combination of both. This includes appropriate footwear. If there is a reason your child is unable to attend school in the appropriate uniform, please provide a written explanation.

Year 10, VCE, VCAL/VET

Over the last 13 years our College has grown dramatically to where it is now, one of the largest single campus schools in the State. We are a school who prides ourselves in offering our students a diverse range of innovative programs that cater for the individual needs and aspirations of all students. These programs also support personal growth, encourage self discipline and promote social responsibility. With these opportunities comes an expectation of performance. In 2014, our senior students achieved some excellent results across both VCE and VCAL. Our expectation as a College is that each student will perform to the best of their ability in their chosen program.

In providing areas of study in years 11 and 12 for 2015, a broad and inclusive range of courses will be offered. These will include: on and off site Vocational Education and Training (VET) programs, the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) which conducts course components that incorporate work based training, and a large range of the courses of study offered in the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE). Here you will find the Year 10 Course Handbook and the Senior Handbook.

To ensure all students select and undertake appropriate and relevant programs, intensive course counselling and information sessions have been made available to all students and parents. Advice is offered in response to work students have submitted in class and counselling is given at our “Careers Expo” night, and the VCE Taste Tester Program. This has also been supported through our Managing Individual Pathways (MIPS) program where all students over 15 have received individual counselling in investigating and setting suitable goals for further education, training and future employment. A further parent and student information night and follow up course counselling session will be conducted during the final course selection period in Term 3 to assist students in their selection of courses. In view of this support all students will be well positioned to select courses and/or training programs pertinent to their individual needs and interests.

In making these decisions do not hesitate, if there is a need, to further discuss the matter with the relevant coordinators, designated course counsellors, careers staff and/or Kelly Lackamn at Senior Reception on 9704 3333.
