At Noosa Christian College (NCC), Year 7 has been part of High School since 2011. Our program features dedicated Year 7 teachers, Miss Courtney Ace and Mrs Anita Mitchell Kerr, who will assist your child with the transition into Secondary College. We believe that Year 7 students continue to need much of the support structures that a Primary school classroom provides. This is why we have purpose-built systems and structures in our Year 7 program to ensure your child does not get lost in the ‘big school’ environment.
Year 7 students at NCC in 2018 enjoy the following benefits:
The balance of the other subjects for Year 7 include:
Students are placed in a ‘subject rotation’ system in Year 7 which allows every student to experience all areas of the curriculum. Practically, it means that your child studies three specialist subject areas in the first 6 months (Semester 1), and then studies another three specialist areas in the second 6 months (Semester 2).
Our Year 7 students also participate in the full High School sport program which includes 'Surf Lifesaving Skills' (Term 1) and elective recreational sports (Terms 2, 3 & 4).
Year 8: Program overview for 2018
The program of classes and subjects for Year 8 is identical to that of Year 7 except that Study Skills is replaced by Business Education and takes place twice a week.
Additionally, Year 8 students attend their core subject classes in the more traditional High School format, that is, with a variety of teachers across subject areas and in different classrooms according to the subject of study.
The College’s curriculum for the Core subject areas of Maths , English , Science and Humanities & Social Science for years 7-10 are based on the Australian Curriculum which was rolled out in 2012 under the joint supervision of Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA), and Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ). Other subject areas follow the Education Queensland Curriculum.
