About Year 10 Subject Selection
- Year 10 students are required to choose 5 electives and self select their level of mathematics.
- Year 10 students are viewed as bridging their education to Years 11 and 12, thus the timetable of Year 10 falls in line with the senior years structure.
- Year 10 students are encouraged to undertake a broad educational load encompassing all subject areas.
