Year 9 at Northern Bay College

Our Year 9 program provides the foundation for success in further study. We work on the development of the student, focusing especially on the building of learner agency. Agency is about students being active learners who can make choices and take actions to fully participate in their learning communities

Student’s study five core subjects in year 9: English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Health & Physical Education. All these subjects focus on modern skills and capabilities, such as critical thinking, personal and social skills, and ethical and intercultural understanding.

Students also choose from a wide range of electives, each running for one semester. Please look at our handbook for more information on these subjects.
