Course Information

The Year 9 Program has been developed by the College in response to the changing needs of students. The focus of the program is the recognition that all students should experience a curriculum that promotes 21st century learning and connects student learning to the world beyond the classroom.

As such the Year 9 program will incorporate a strong focus on the Victorian Curriculum General Capabilities:

  • Intercultural Understanding

  • Ethical Capability

  • Critical and Creative Thinking

  • Personal and Social Learning

The Global Citizenship program focuses on the four ‘C’s of 21st century learning: Communication, Collaboration, Critical thinking and Creative problem solving. It is intended to provide students with learning opportunities beyond the traditional classroom and into the community, incorporating student-led activities and projects. The year-long nature of the Global Citizenship program allows sustained engagement of these skills and authentic assessment. There will be opportunities for students to engage in incursions and excursions that are relevant to the ideas and concepts being explored which may include:

  • Art Galleries

  • The City of Melbourne

  • Local organisations and other public and private institutions

Students will also undertake a research project exploring intercultural understanding. This will link directly to the Victorian Curriculum General Capabilities and provide students with the opportunity to research a project with an intercultural focus, working collaboratively with their peers.
