Year 9

Middle School

Dromana College is committed to providing an extensive teaching and learning program that allows all students to pursue their passions as well as explore new interests in a supportive and challenging learning environment.

Our Year 9 program focuses on catering for the needs and interests of each student, and ensures all students are supported to maximise their learning potential. Students at Year 9 choose a total of eight electives across the course of a year.

These electives are arranged into six main learning areas and students choose broadly across each. This structure enables students to develop a personalised learning pathway that will lead them into the senior school.

All students in Year 9 study English and Mathematics (in single gender classes), Pastoral Care, Health and Physical Education, Humanities and Science in a dedicated learning space that caters specifically for the developing minds of our Year 9 students.

Electives

Student will choose an additional 8 electives across the year to complete the program above.

We strongly encourage students to choose at least one elective from the Arts and one elective from Technology

Elective Considerations

  • Students should select electives that interest them, not just what their friends choose.
  • The electives should be from at least three different Domains to ensure breadth in the learning program.
  • Some of the electives such as Languages, Cycling and Tip Off Basketball run for the whole year so are worth two elective choices.
