Years 7- 9 Curriculum Overview

At Echuca College the Years 7-9 program involves students in a transition from a broad and general education to one where they begin the process of making genuine choices that reflect their special interests and talents. These real choices will affect their long term educational and employment pathways.

Year 9 is the first year where they make elective choices, whilst Year 10 is viewed as the foundation year of the Post-Compulsory Educational Pathway which increasingly requires students to focus on tertiary entrance and work- related employable skill development.

Years 7-9 provides:-

  • a high level of integration between subjects
  • an expectation that students will take responsibility for their own learning and follow clearly established protocols for working in the flexible spaces and in the specialised classrooms
  • use of technology within the neighbourhoods and in designated classrooms in learning applications
  • teams of teachers working with the groups of students
  • shared planning and preparation for all learning experiences
