Year 9

Following on from Trasna, in which students transition from their primary education to a secondary school experience, the Year 9 program allows students to focus on their identity as learners and contributors to the wider community. It also builds their capacity to develop their mental, physical, emotional and spiritual strengths. As a result, the aim is for students to enter their senior years at Star of the Sea College as committed, curious and critical-thinking young women in the Presentation tradition, for which Deeds not Words provides an anchor.

As part of the curriculum, Endeavour is a specialised subject with a focus on entrepreneurial skills, critical and creative thinking, ethics, intercultural studies, and personal and social skills. Throughout the year, students will collaborate and communicate, engage with and solve problems in a real-world context. Enterprise skills are seen as vital for future employment, and the Endeavour program encourages the transformation of skills and competencies that are vital for future success.

In addition, an extensive Exploration Program is embedded into the Year 9 curriculum. This allows students to see how their subjects link with their experiences in the world around them. Through this, they develop a deeper understanding of their own place in the world.
