Our Senior School Structure provides students with relevant educational pathways catering to their differing needs. Each pathway deeply encourages students to have meaningful, quality learning experiences, allowing them to strive for personal excellence and to maximise future opportunities so that students can lead successful and impactful lives.
Year 10 is the year for our students to Explore their true academic capabilities, interests and strengths so that they can define their aspirations for academic and personal achievements at JSRACS and for their future career ambitions. Students also explore their character strengths and how they can actively incorporate wellbeing into their lives to enhance and support their experiences at school.
The Year 10 Course Handbook provides descriptions of the Courses offered to Year 10 students.
Students will study a set of Compulsory Courses, these being English, Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS), Mathematics, Science, Physical Education, Health Education and Religious Studies. Students will be able to indicate a preference for three more courses from the Specialist Courses that are listed in this handbook.
Students will be assigned to the compulsory course level of English, HASS, Mathematics and Science, appropriate to their aptitude, ability and performance. This information will be provided to parents towards the end of Term Four and parents will be able to contact Heads of Department if they have any queries about these placements. The three other compulsory courses of Religion Studies, Physical Education and Health Education are all of a general nature with all students following the same course for each of these subject areas.
