Elective Subjects

Diverse programs tailored for a girls' education

Whilst our core academic curriculum is designed to be rigorous, challenging and relevant to ‘tomorrow’s woman’, the school also provides elective offerings within Years 8, 9 and 10 to help extend and broaden each girl’s outlook, whilst strengthening her passions for learning and developing her various skills.

Year 8 & 9 Electives

In Years 8 and 9, students will undertake intensive courses designed to develop skills and interests in a wide range of creative areas. Through cross-age collaboration, these project-based subjects will utilise design and solutions-oriented thinking to inspire girls in their learning.
