Year 11 & 12

Overview for 2016:
Senior students at Noosa Christian College (NCC) complete subjects as prescribed by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) leading to the QCE (Queensland Certificate of Education). 

In Queensland, students are given an Overall Position (OP) according to "a statewide rank order based on their overall achievement in QCAA subjects. It indicates how well a student has done in comparison to all other OP-eligible students in Queensland and is used for tertiary entrance purposes only. Students are placed in one of 25 OP bands from OP1 (highest) to OP25 (lowest)."1

Students who are seeking an apprenticeship or traineeship can opt for some non-OP subjects in their overall subject choices.

Senior subjects currently offered at NCC include;

  • Study of Religion, Religion and Ethics (non-OP)
  • English, English Communication (non-OP)
  • Mathematics A, Mathematics B, Pre-vocational Maths (non-OP)
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Business Management
  • Information Technology Systems (ITS)
  • Ancient History
  • Visual Arts
  • Drama
  • Physical Education



External Study Opportunities:
Senior students also have the opportunity to complete additional fields of study via external Education groups, which add real world value to their on-campus studies. These include;

  • The selection of one subject offered through Brisbane School of Distance Education (BSDE) that is not currently offered at NCC. Classes for this subject are scheduled twice a week in a timeslot that is often prior to school hours (for example 8-9am) enabling students to attend their full range of other classes on campus. Students taking up this learning opportunity are able to drop one line from their studies at NCC, so that free lessons can be used to work on the BSDE elective.
  • The completion of a Vocational and Educational Traineeship (VET) through TAFE, over the senior years. These school-based traineeships earn them a Certificate III in their chosen area of study and provide an excellent foundation for future employment and study beyond Year 12. Students complete 50 days of work per year and are able to drop one line from their elective subjects, allowing them to complete their traineeship studies during their free lessons.


Extra Curricular Opportunities:
Furthermore, Senior students are provided with a wide variety of extra-curricular programs including; Chapel programs, Sports opportunities, Senior trips, Service opportunities and more. You can read more about our secondary extra-curricular activities at Noosa Christian College here
