At St Aloysius Catholic College, elective courses are offered from Years 3 to 10, which aim to engage students in learning that extends their personal interests and skills. In later years, these subjects also provide learning pathways that link to future careers and post Year 10 education.
Electives are a range of courses that students select, to extend their learning beyond their core subjects. The College offers courses in the Arts, Technology, Physical Education, and academic extension courses. These courses aim to engage and motivate students, providing learning opportunities that develop skills or knowledge, that are of particular interest for each individual student. Starting our elective program at Year 3 also provides students with the opportunity to take responsibility for their own learning, as they can choose their own courses and make decisions about their own learning.
Course content, time allocation, and the number of courses on offer vary from Years 3 to 10, and have been developed to suit the age and learning needs of each cohort of students.
