Year 8

The Year 8 program offers a combination of core and elective subjects.

The core subjects, which run for a full year, are:

  • Integrated Studies (English), or English as an Additional Language (EAL) (for students who have been in Australia for 5 years or less);
  • Mathematics;
  • Science;
  • Integrated Studies (Humanities);
  • Languages Other than English (LOTE) students can choose from French, Italian or Japanese; and
  • Health & Physical Education.

The Literacy Support Program (LSP) provides literacy support for students who need extra assistance. Those students identified as needing this support will participate in LSP instead of studying a LOTE.

Year 8 term-based electives, which include units from the Arts, and Technology, are:
