Year 8

Core Program

In the design of the Core Program at this level, the following considerations are seen as being of key importance:

  • The curriculum must offer as broad a range of studies as possible from each of the Learning Areas (LAs)
  • Special emphasis on literacy and numeracy at these levels; Consequently English and Mathematics have been allotted additional time within the curriculum
  • All students must have the opportunity to develop their Information Technology skills within the context of the computer network available at St. Peter’s College
  • All students must be given the opportunity to study Languages, French and Japanese
  • Year 8 students must be prepared for challenges and choices to be made in Year 10
