Curriculum Information for Years 7 & 8

 

Orbost Secondary College has developed a curriculum at Years 7 and 8 which aims to provide a range of experiences.

We are continuing to renew our curriculum in line with the Department of Education & Early Childhood Development guidelines. We are confident that all students will experience the following:

 

Subjects Undertaken in Years 7 & 8

English
Mathematics
Science
Humanities (History and Geography)
Language Other Than English (LOTE - Indonesian)
Technology Studies (including Materials - Wood, Food and Textiles and ICT)
The Arts (including Art, Performing Arts, and Visual Communication)
Personal Development (including Physical and Health Education)
Sustainability (Water focus) Integrated Unit-English, Humanities, Science, Year 8

 

The range of subjects at Years 7 & 8 provides the opportunity for students to experience new and challenging subjects while continuing the development of basic skills. As they move through the school, we hope that these subjects will assist them to make informed elective subject/unit choices in later years.
