         We will show respect, compassion and service to others
         We will strive for excellence
         We will be consistent and fair
         We will model Christ in our behaviour

Mission
      Foster the growth and development of knowledge, skills and values needed by each person
        to become what God has called him or her to be in their service for others.

          Develop the whole person to be fully alive and encourage the students to see Jesus as the
           model for humanity.

          Appreciate the God-given gifts in all members of the College community and to develop
           these gifts so that each person may contribute to the common good.

Looking Forward
At Emmanuel Catholic College, Year 10 is seen as the beginning of Senior School. Throughout Year 10,
students will be challenged and encouraged to achieve at their best in all that they do. They will be
urged to achieve the best results in their academic subjects and also in the other areas of school life.
Students will be encouraged to set goals and strive hard to reach them.

Year 10 can be expected to be more demanding than Year 9 in relation to the subjects studied.
Students must consistently apply themselves fully in each of their classes and with their home study.

During Year 10, students wishing to continue their schooling into Year 11 will be required to make some
important decisions about career directions. Some students will be looking at pursuing admission to
particular University or State Training Provider courses. Others will perhaps be looking at equipping
themselves with desirable skills to improve their chances of entering the workforce prior to or following
the completion of Year 12. Students should therefore consider which subjects are going to maximise
their options as well as being ones in which they can expect to be successful.

Students need to be aware that Subject Selection for Year 11 will occur at the beginning of Term 3.
The Semester 1 results of Year 10 are therefore very important, as these results will determine what pre-
requisites will be met, and what subjects are available for selection. Students must ensure that they
apply themselves during Year 10 to give themselves the best opportunity to move forward in their
desired pathway for Year 11.

break time. Families who make the decision to take holidays during term time and who remove their
children from the College for extended periods of time need to be aware that teachers at the College
are under no obligation to provide work for students during these extended periods of absence.
Students will need to catch up on work missed on their return to the College, but please recognise that
this is not a suitable substitute for teacher directed lessons.

Interschool Sport
      Year 10 students at Emmanuel Catholic College will be given the opportunity to display their sporting
      talents throughout the year in the Swimming, Athletics and Cross Country Inter-House Carnivals. Students
      will also have the opportunity to be selected to represent the College in these fields as well as Junior
      representative teams to compete against other schools in a range of after school sports competitions
      through the Southern Associated Schools (Junior) branch of the ACC program and School Sport WA
      sporting programs.

      Music (Instrumental Lessons)

      Music (Specialist Instrumental) is a program comprising instrumental tuition and music appreciation. The
      cost of individual tuition must be met by parents and will be in addition to the school fees. Separate
      forms are available from Student Services for students who wish to study a Musical Instrument.

      Extension and Enrichment Programs
      In Year 10, students will be placed into differentiated programs of study in each of the core subjects of
      English, Mathematics and Science.

      All students are placed into Pathways according to ability. These Pathways are designed to ensure that
      students are able to obtain success in their courses. At Emmanuel, Pathway 1 is the hardest course with
      each Pathway varying from here. All Pathway 1 courses are aimed at extending the students and the
      work is set above the SCSA standards in Year 10.

      Students who have been placed in a particular program are not necessarily locked into that program.
      Opportunities exist at various times during the year where students may be moved from one program
      to another, depending on their progress and quality of work.

      Christian Service

      At Emmanuel Catholic College, students are expected to complete a minimum of 25 hours of Christian
      Service by the end of Year 10 and a further 25 hours in Year 11. This will mean that each student will
      complete 50 hours of Christian Service in upper school. The College will also provide students with a
      reflective component to allow them to qualify for an endorsed unit of work.

      Christian Service is defined as: “Activities undertaken for the benefit of individuals and/or community for
      no financial reward.” Such activities may be school-orientated, providing a service in an area of need
      within the school environment or community-orientated, providing a service in an area of need within
      the broader community.

      Recording Hours of Christian Service
      Students must keep a digital record of their service activities and number of hours completed in school
      provided digital log sheets.

      What Counts as Christian Service?
      • Social and personal development activities undertaken for the benefit of others
      • Service component of community programs
      • Fund-raising activities
      • Service components built into school curriculum
      • Activities that receive a small honorarium
      • Activities that benefit the school environment or other students
      • Activities undertaken following skills development or leadership programs
      • Activities that benefit the community
      • Work for non-profit organisations
      • Participation in citizenship or leadership service activities
      • Home-based service given by young carers.

English

        The various English pathways from Year 10 to Year 12 are summarised below.

        Year 10,                                      Year 11 & Year 12

        Pathway 1.........................................ATAR Literature or ATAR English

        Pathway 2.........................................ATAR Literature, ATAR English or General English

        Pathway 3.........................................General English

        Pathway 4.........................................General English

        The Year 10 course is developed around the strands of the Australian Curriculum: Language, Literature
        and Literacy. The activities and assessments will reflect the learning outcomes of listening and
        speaking, viewing, reading and writing. The aims of the course are to:

            Develop, students’ knowledge of language and literature and to consolidate and expand their
             literacy skills. More specifically it aims to support students to understand how Standard Australian
             English works in its spoken and written forms
            Appreciate and enjoy language and develop a sense of its richness and its power to evoke
             feelings, form and convey ideas, persuade, entertain and argue
            Understand, interpret, reflect on and create an increasingly broad repertoire of spoken, written
             and multimodal texts across a growing range of settings
            Access a broad range of literary texts and develop an informed appreciation of literature master
             the written and spoken language forms of schooling and knowledge

        A variety of texts, including transactional, media and literature, will be used reflecting the aims of the
        Australian Curriculum and the Cross Curriculum Priorities of: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories
        and culture, Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia and Sustainability. The English course is
        designed and delivered to enhance the individual student's learning needs.

        This course introduces a wider range of texts that are more sophisticated. It provides students with
        opportunities to consolidate and develop the concepts, skills and understandings they encountered
        in Year 7-9 English.

        Students who show greater aptitude in English may be placed in the Pathway 1 class. This is based on
        Year 9 performances and individual teacher feedback. We also offer a Pathway 4 English for students
        needing more individualised support and looking towards a non-university pathway in Years 11 and
        12.

        Some selected texts are available for free use through the English Department however teachers may
        request novels, texts and iBooks via the book list. This will enable students to be presented with a variety
        of stimulus material.

Emmanuel Catholic College – Curriculum Handbook Year 10, 2021                                                7|P a g e
Mathematics

          Year 10 students are placed into one of four pathways according to their achievement in
          assessments in Year 9 and in consultation with their Year 9 class teacher. This placement continues
          the preparation that was started in Year 9 for entry into the Year 11 and 12 courses in which students
          may subsequently wish to enrol.

          The Year 10 Mathematics course follows the West Australian Curriculum published by the School
          Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA). The knowledge, understandings, skills, values and
          attitudes set by SCSA (www.scsa.wa.edu.au) include studies in:

                  Number and Algebra
                  Measurement and Geometry
                  Statistics and Probability

          Year 10 Students are required to purchase all special equipment items for Mathematics found on the
          booklist. Please note that the Casio Classpad calculator is required as a learning tool for Year 10
          students in Pathways 1 and 2 only.

          Assessments
          Students are assessed according to the Curriculum Framework Learning statements for mathematics
          as developed by the School Curriculum and Standard Authority (www.scsa.wa.edu.au).

          The Year 10 programs are designed to take advantage of a range of available digital technologies
          to explore and develop students’ skills. These include the use of calculators, computers/iPads as well
          as a range of online resources. Students will acquire skills in the key mathematical areas of Fluency,
          Logical Reasoning, Analytic Thought and Problem-solving.

          Pathway

          Pathway 1 continues preparing students for Mathematics Specialist and Mathematical Methods
          (ATAR courses). Students who have demonstrated very high ability in mathematics will be placed in
          this pathway.

          Pathway 2 continues preparing students for Mathematics Methods and Mathematics Applications
          (ATAR course). Students must have proven above average ability in mathematics to be placed in
          this pathway.

          Pathway 3 continues preparing students to consider entry to Mathematics Applications or
          Mathematics Essentials in Year 11. Mathematics Applications is an ATAR course, while Mathematics
          Essentials is a general course. Students need to be competent in mathematics for placement in this
          pathway.

          Pathway 4 continues preparation for students to study Foundation or Essential Mathematics, general
          courses that prepares students for practical mathematics required for life skills.

          Note that students in each Pathway will be also be adequately prepared for any course in Year 11
          below the one for which they are eligible. Placement in a Pathway does not guarantee that a
          student will be able to select the corresponding course in Year 11. Students must meet grade
          standards as indicated on the following flow chart.

Humanities and Social Sciences

        The Humanities pathways from Year 10 to Year 12 are summarised below.

        Year 10                                     Year 11 & Year 12

        Humanities ...................................... ATAR Economics, ATAR Modern History, ATAR Geography,
                                                          ATAR Business M & E, ATAR Politics and Law, General History,
                                                          General Geography, General Politics and Law or Business
                                                          VET

        The Year 10 Humanities program will examine a number of current and historical issues, ranging from
        environmental to current Australian economic matters. Students will have opportunities to examine
        in all courses case examples from both around the world and locally. Two of the more significant
        focus areas will be the inquiry and communication skills, and the development of an informed
        personal opinion. Such skills are part of the Western Australian Curricula courses and are ideal areas
        for broad educational growth.

        Generally, the research enquiry will involve a variety of sources; for example, DVDs, personal
        interviews, books and the Internet (including YouTube). The results of the enquiry will then be
        communicated in a variety of ways; for example, reports, PowerPoint and video. Students will be
        encouraged to complete both individual and group processes using a variety of ICT skills.

        In Humanities and Social Sciences students will be placed in mixed ability classes and rotate through
        two specialist teachers, one for each semester, for Business/Economics/Geography then
        History/Politics/Law.

        Looking Towards Year 11

        By the end of the Year 10 program, students will have developed a range of skills that will form a
        strong foundation for the Humanities ATAR courses of Geography, Modern History, Economics, Politics
        and Law, and Business Management & Enterprise (BME). Business (VET), General History, Politics and
        Law and Geography will also be offered for General pathway students.

Science

        In the Year 10 curriculum students explore systems at different scales and connect microscopic and
        macroscopic properties to explain phenomena. Students explore the biological, chemical,
        geological and physical evidence for different theories, such as the theories of natural selection and
        the big bang.

        Students develop their understanding of atomic theory to understand relationships within the periodic
        table. They understand that motion and forces are related by applying physical laws. They learn
        about the relationships between aspects of the living, physical and chemical world that are applied
        to systems on a local and global scale which will enable them to predict how changes will affect
        equilibrium within these systems.

        All students in Year 10 Science will sit the same course and assessments in Semester 1 and then be
        placed in Pathways based on Semester 1 results for Semester 2. Students need to be aware that these
        Semester 2 pathways will have an impact on what courses students may be able to choose in Years
        11 and 12. These pathways and future courses are summarised below:

        Not Rocket Science

        The world is changing rapidly around us as computers combine with modern materials to make new
        opportunities that were only possible in dreams previously. Mechanisation and automation are
        dramatically changing the employment landscape as simple labouring jobs disappear and creative
        design-based careers emerge.

        The careers of tomorrow are yet to be invented.
        How do we best prepare for a future where your dream job doesn’t even exist yet?

        The engineering design process will be at the heart of many of our future occupations, both those
        traditional jobs that survive the technical revolution and those that emerge from it. By studying the
        engineering design process, we can build skills that are both creative and systematic. Skills that will
        allow us to adapt to any eventuality.

        The engineering elective on offer in Year 10 will find students planning, building and testing moving
        structures using the design process introduced in mainstream science. The engineering electives are
        for those students interested in gaining a better understanding of the design process through practical
        experience in project based learning.

        Visual Art

        Year 10 Art encourages creativity and personal expression, focusing on developing artistic skills and
        conceptual thinking. The emphasis is on practical art making in a range of studio areas including
        painting, sculpture, textiles, print-making and mixed media.

        Students develop greater understanding of how contexts of culture, time and place impact on the
        development of ideas and production of art forms in the artistic process. They continue to explore
        artistic influences, while being encouraged to express greater individualism in their application of
        ideas and materials.

        Students will also investigate and analyse the arts practice and art work of a range of historical and
        contemporary artists. Year 10 Visual Arts is recommended for those students wishing to study Visual
        Art in Years 11 and 12.

        Assessment
        Practical - Creative projects in response to a given theme, in different studio areas. Visual diary
        processes with media experimentation, design development and colour studies will be assessed, with
        particular emphasis on the final art piece.

        Written - Assignments investigating and analysing the arts practice and artwork of historical and
        contemporary artists and developing knowledge of art movements.

Drama

        In Year 10, drama students will be given opportunities to develop their knowledge and skills to present
        drama for purposes and wider external audiences, safely using processes, techniques and
        conventions of drama.

        Students develop drama based on devised drama processes and taken from published script excerpts
        (e.g. Australian drama post-1960 or world drama), using selected drama forms and styles. Students will
        have opportunities to research devised drama and read in selected script excerpts in context.

        Student work in devised and scripted drama is the focus of reflective and responsive processes.
        Students are encouraged to develop their use of extended answer forms and interviews, using drama
        terminology, language and different forms of communication, based on their own drama and the
        drama of others.

        Possible Drama forms and styles for Year 10: Grotowski's Poor Theatre, Youth Theatre, Contemporary
        Aboriginal Theatre, Theatre of the Absurd or Butoh, Realism.

        Students with skills in dance, singing, music, acting, art, IT and technical areas like lighting and sound
        are all encouraged to choose this subject. Year 10 Drama is recommended for those students wishing
        to study Drama in Year 11 and 12.

        Written – Reflective Practice and Performance Analysis.

        Dance

        In Year 10, Dance students continue to extend their use of the elements of dance (BEST) and
        choreographic processes to expand their choreographic intentions in their choreography. They
        extend their technical dance skills to include style-specific movement skills.

        Through performance, students continue to work on confidence, accuracy, clarity of movement and
        projection. They refine their discussion of the use of the elements of dance, choreographic processes
        and design concepts in their own dance and the dance of others. They investigate dance and
        influences of the social, cultural and historical contexts in which it exists.

        Safe dance practices underlie all experiences, as students perform within their own body capabilities
        and work safely in groups.

        Suggested genres or styles that may be taught, but are not limited to, include contemporary, ballet,
        jazz, hip hop, street dance, tap and cultural dance, for example Spanish, Indian, Bollywood. Year 10
