Students must complete 400 hours of Additional Courses of Study
over Years 9 -10.

All courses are offered as either 200 hour or 100 hour versions.

There are three (3) ways to meet this requirement:

4 x 100 hour courses
2 x 200 hour courses
2 x 100 hour and 1x 200 hour courses
Year 8 Additional Courses of Study Presentation 2020 (Year 9 2021) - St. Mary's Catholic ...
200 hour courses are studied in both Year 9 and
Year 10. That is, you study this course for two years.

200 hour courses are NOT harder than 100 hour
courses, they simply are longer and cover more
topics than the 100 hour course.
Year 8 Additional Courses of Study Presentation 2020 (Year 9 2021) - St. Mary's Catholic ...
100 hour courses are studied for one year only.

These are not easier than 200 hour courses, they
simply cover less material.

100 hour courses allow students to undertake a
greater variety of courses.
For students who want to try a number of courses.

4 courses are studied over 2 years (2 courses per
year)
Students will focus on just two courses over the two
years.
Most common option taken by students.

Allows for a focus in one area whilst sampling others.

Example

Year 9:        Industrial Tech – Timber
               Art

Year 10:       Industrial Tech – Timber
               Drama
Alternative Courses of Study are graded and recorded
on the student’s Record of School Achievement (RoSA).

Students doing 100hr subjects will effectively be studying
for their RoSA in Year 9.

For 200hr subjects the grade is awarded on the Year 10
component of the course (Year 9 results not counted)
The RoSA shows a student’s comprehensive record of
academic achievement, which includes:
• completed courses and the awarded grade or mark
• courses a student has participated in but did not
  complete before leaving school
• results of any minimum standard literacy and
  numeracy tests that may have been sat
• Stage 5 (Year 10) and Stage 6 (Year 11) courses, the
  student has satisfactorily completed.
• Follow approved course
• Apply yourself with diligence and
  sustained effort to the set tasks and
  experiences provided in the course.
• Achieve some or all of the course
  outcomes.
Satisfactory completion includes
such things as:
• attendance pattern
• level of involvement in class
• effort
• assignments
• homework completed
• and level of achievement
If a student is in danger of not completing a
course:
• A written warning will be given
• Opportunity will be given to correct any
   problem, or make up outstanding work.
• If no improvement occurs an “N” determination
   will be awarded.
• ‘N’ Determinations will have a serious impact on
   qualification for the Record of Student
   Achievement (ROSA).
• The National Assessment Program - Literacy and
  Numeracy (NAPLAN) assesses the literacy and
  numeracy skills of students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9, in
  schools across Australia.
• NAPLAN assesses writing, language conventions,
  reading and numeracy.
• In 2021 NAPLAN tests will once again be online
• NAPLAN results will help you understand how your
  child is progressing through school.

  interested in?

• P.A.S.S provides the opportunity for students to extend on knowledge
  from their own sporting experiences.

  PDHPE.
Who should consider PASS?

• Students who enjoy sport and physical activity.
• Students who would like to increase their activity levels in an
  environment that is non-competitive.
• Students who want to experience sports that they have not

Food Technology

What will students learn to do?
The major emphasis of the Food Technology syllabus is on students exploring food-
related issues through a range of practical experiences, allowing them to make
informed and appropriate choices with regard to food. Integral to this course is
students developing the ability and confidence to design, produce and evaluate
solutions to situations involving food. They will learn to select and use appropriate
ingredients, methods and equipment safely and competently.
Textiles Technology
  Students will learn about textiles through the study of different
  focus areas. The following focus areas are recognised fields of
       textiles that will direct the choice of student projects.
                               • Apparel
                           •    Textile arts
                          •    Furnishings
                          •    Non-apparel
                           •    Costume
Project work will enable students to discriminate in their choices of
  textiles for particular uses. The focus areas provide the context
  through which the three areas of study (Design, Properties and
    Performance of Textiles, Textiles and Society) are covered.
ISTEM (Integrated Science, Technology,
           Engineering and Mechanics)

What will students learn to do?
Students will learn to use a range of tools, techniques and processes, including
relevant technologies in order to develop solutions to a wide variety of
problems. The ISTEM program utilises a practical integrated approach with
engineering and technology being used to drive interest in science and
mathematics, through the development of technical skills and mechanical
engineering knowledge.
Girls – Do NOT think this is just a subject for boys. The last few
years this course has run, a girl has been in the top 3 of the class.

take the wheelie bin out, doors that automatically open to passwords, electric bikes that charge devices and
water pistols that automatically sense and squirt invaders. These are just some of the great projects that are
designed and made by students.
Graphics Technology

 What will students learn to do?
 The major emphasis of the Graphics Technology subject is on students’ actively
 planning, developing and producing quality graphical presentations. Students will
 learn to design, prepare and present graphical presentations using both manual and
 computer based drafting technologies. They will learn to interpret and analyse
 graphical images and presentations and develop an understanding of the use of
 graphics in industrial, commercial and domestic environments.
Perspective Drawings

Current Project
Industrial Technology
       – Multimedia
             Students will learn…..

• to apply practical experiences to the study of the
   technology, design, management and organisation
   of the multimedia industry.
• You will have the opportunity to use a range of
   multimedia software including, Adobe Flash and
   Dreamweaver, to create interactive multimedia
   products, such as simple games and websites.
• There are no presumed knowledge or skills
   required. Learn to be a creator not just a user of
   multimedia.
• Develop practical skills in a range of tools like
   animation, special effects for film and websites and
   create interactive multimedia products.
