                                          Introduction

Dear Year 8 Student

Contained in this Booklet is important information which has been designed to assist you in;

●       making well-informed and sound decisions
●       viewing information which needs your close attention, discussion and consideration
●       providing support for you in attaining your personal potential.

     The over-riding consideration at Mary MacKillop Catholic
    College is that students select subjects suited to their interests
                             and abilities:
●       Choosing subjects you are interested in and like, make your life at school enjoyable
●       Choosing subjects which match your level of ability makes your school life rewarding.

                      Right Subject + That I Enjoy = Right Result

This booklet provides information on;
●       The curriculum requirements for Stage 5 (Year 9 and 10) (Section 1) and
●       Elective subjects offered for study in Stage 5 (Section 2).
Please read the booklet carefully

Year 8 students must select ​TWO electives and THREE reserve electives to study in Year 9
and 10, in preference order​ using the Web Preferences Student Portal. Your Username and
Password will be provided at a later date.
(Students can login and submit their preferences before the deadline, processing of forms will
occur only after this date.)
While every effort is made to give each student their choices, there may be situations where this
may not be possible because of class sizes, timetable restrictions and staff recommendations.
Thus, any delay in returning the subject selection forms will most certainly result in
preferences/choices being reduced for all students.

Please ensure that before you submit your elective choice form, that both you and your
parent/guardian have signed the form.

                                        Welcome to Stage 5

The start of Year 9 marks the commencement of your Stage 5 studies. School education
is broken up into 6 stages. Years 9 and 10 are referred to as Stage 5. For the first time in
secondary school you are able to choose some of the subjects that you will study.

In Stage 5, Mary MacKillop students study two elective subjects plus the core subjects
(which are listed on page 9 of this booklet).

Please read the following information carefully.

The key to enjoying the next two years and succeeding in your studies is to ensure you
choose subjects that you will enjoy and are suited to. It also will require you to commit to
high standards in class work and homework. In ​choosing​ your electives consider
carefully your interests and talents.

This Booklet is designed to provide you with information about the elective subjects
offered at Mary MacKillop Catholic College and assist you in choosing the appropriate
subject. This subject selection booklet contains a brief explanation of what each elective
subject is about. You can seek further advice from the Leader of Curriculum,
Coordinator of Learning (Year), Coordinator of Learning (KLA) and your class teachers
about any matters relating to the subjects outlined in this booklet.

Before making your choices, completing your on-line subject selection and handing in
the signed receipt, you need to:
        - Read this booklet carefully and gather information about what the subject is
            about
        - Talk to appropriate current Year 9 and 10 students about their experiences
        - Discuss your choices with your parents and teachers
        - Make the final decision, chosen on the basis of interest, strengths and your
            weaknesses and don’t be concerned with what friends might be choosing.

A sensible and mature approach to this program and a positive attitude will result in two
happy and successful years here at MMCC whilst you undertake your studies in Stage 5.

NOTE: Once you have made your choices you will carry them through to the end of Year 10.
Once your electives have been allocated for Years 9 and 10 the decision is final. Therefore, no
changes can be made for an incorrect choice of subjects.

The Spirit of St Mary of the Cross MacKillop

Mary MacKillop was born to migrant parents in Melbourne in the middle of last century. In
1886, Mary MacKillop, in cooperation with Father Julian Tenison Woods, founded the Sisters of
St Joseph; and dedicated her life to the teaching of poor children. She responded to one of the
greatest social issues of her time: the lack of educational opportunities for young people,
particularly Catholics, in many parts of Australia. She was the first Australian founder of a
Religious Congregation for women. Mary MacKillop died in Sydney on August 8th, 1909 and
was canonised on Sunday. 17 October 2010.

Her life was founded on her faith and beliefs.

   ● Mary MacKillop believed in herself and her ability to achieve.

   ● Mary MacKillop believed in God and recognised God's plan for her in the events that
     shaped her life.

   ● Mary MacKillop was courageous enough to dream dreams; and determined enough to
     work for their realisation.

Our Founding Beliefs

We believe...

   ● That Mary MacKillop based her life on the ideals of respect for every person, justice for
     the poor, and education that promoted the individual, trust in God, and that her charism
     should guide all our endeavours at Mary MacKillop Catholic College

   ● That the Christian ethos based on the Gospel values of peace, love, joy and
     reconciliation, pervade all aspects of the College

   ● That we should work in cooperation and partnership with parents, priests and the local
     community

   ● That we live in a multicultural society and that this is the future hope of our community

   ● That education is about liberation and the redemption of the human spirit in all its
     aspects, and that the Catholic school is concerned with empowering students to become
     autonomous and to take responsibility for their own learning and lives.

                    Study Tips for a Successful Stage 5 Experience

1) Start your homework early. "Procrastination is a student’s worst enemy." Try to get
   some quality homework completed earlier on in the evening
2) Take good notes and review them often. Notes have no use if you don’t even look at
   them. Type up a one page set of notes and display these in a number of places
   leading up to a test

3) Take short breaks between heavy study periods, i.e. 5-minute break for every 40
   minutes of study

4) Ask questions about things you don’t understand

5) Schedule your time wisely, use your College Diary to develop a study schedule and
   stick to it

6) Find the study environment that works for you, i.e. a quiet room free from
   distractions. Keep this room neat and ensure you have all the equipment required to
   complete your homework

7) Study even if your teacher did not assign homework; use the nights when you did
   not get much homework to revise

8) Go to bed early – you need 8 to 10 hours of sleep a night! Eat healthy foods,
   including breakfast and exercise regularly

9) Develop good listening skills. "60% of your school day is spent listening"

10) Participate in class discussions

11) Control interruptions when you study (friends, siblings, TV, music, phones etc.)
    Get your parents to take messages when you receive a telephone call

12) Tackle your hardest subject first. If you cannot do the hardest subject when you are
    fresh, what chance do you have when you’re tired?
13) Keep your work neat and well organised

14) AVOID "CRAMMING"!​ ​Start revising for tests early and do not leave it until the
    last couple of days, as this will only stress you out.

Always do your very best in every task and you will enjoy your days at school.

                               Curriculum Requirements for Stage 5
                           and the Record of School Achievement (RoSA).

   NESA’s mandatory curriculum requirements for Stage 5 are listed below. All time allocations are
indicative. Indicative time is the time expected for a typical student to achieve the objectives and
outcomes of the course. The indicative time for a course is therefore directly related to that course’s
objectives and outcomes.
   Reference to Years 7–10 in the following table in no way precludes gifted and talented students
from accelerated study programs in English, Mathematics and Science.

   All students who attend Mary MacKillop Catholic College will be provided with a Curriculum
program that meets the Stage 4 and 5 Curriculum Requirements.

  What requirements do I have to meet to complete a Stage 5 Pattern of Study and be eligible
  for Stage 6?
  To satisfactorily complete Stage 5 you must:
       • apply yourself to all the courses you are studying, by completing all the assessment tasks
          and class work set
       • have a satisfactory record of attendance throughout Year 9 and Year 10 in order to meet
          course outcomes as recommended by NESA
       • be in attendance at school until the final date for Year 10, as stipulated by NESA.

          At MMCC we look at your ATTITUDE, APPLICATION and ATTENDANCE

   What does satisfactory application mean?
   NESA requires that your application to your work is satisfactory. This means that you must show
you have met the course requirements in terms of both effort and achievement. Merely attending
classes regularly does not constitute satisfactory completion of a course. Rather, it is expected that
you will engage in lessons, complete all the assessment tasks as well as other assigned tasks, e.g.
Class work and homework as required. Extended periods of absence of more than fifteen (15) days
each year would make it very difficult for a student to meet the outcomes of a course.

   What happens if I do not satisfactorily complete a course?
   Hopefully, this situation will never apply to you! However, should you fail to meet course
requirements an “N” award will be given for that course and this shows that the subject was not
satisfactorily completed.
   A student may not progress onto Stage 6 study if she:
   (a) Did not meet all mandatory curriculum requirements;
   (b) Left school before the final date for Year 10 without being granted an exemption;
   (c) Did not comply with other NESA requirements
   A student who is given an ‘N’ determination in ​a mandatory course​ in​ Stage 5 may not be
eligible to undertake Stage 6 studies.

  Credentialing​ ​Stage​ 5
  NESA issues what is known as the Record of School Achievement (RoSA).

  This credential will:
   ● be a record of achievement for students who leave school prior to receiving their HSC
   ● report results of moderated, school based assessment
   ● be available when a student leaves school any time after they complete Year 10
   ● be cumulative and recognise a student’s achievements until the point they leave school
   ● show ​the Stage 5 courses that a student has completed and the grade (A-E) awarded by the
       school for each course
                                                   ~12​~

 ● show​ the mandatory requirements in Languages, Technology (Mandatory), Music, Visual
   Arts, and Personal Development, Health and Physical Education. Mandatory requirements
   are reported as 'Completed', or, where they have not been met, as 'Not Completed'

A sample of the School Record of Achievement (RoSA) is shown below for a student leaving
school after completing Stage 5. This document will only be issued to those students that finish
their schooling after completing Stage 5.

Description of Levels of Achievement

How will my Level of Achievement in all my subjects be worked out?
Naturally, the grades you receive in your different subjects are directly based on your level of
achievement in the assessment program for each course you study.
Grades A to E will be awarded by the College for all courses on the basis of Performance Descriptors
issued by NESA. The exception is Mathematics grades where NESA uses: A10, A9, B8, B7, C6, C5,
D4, D3 and E2 in the final school report.

                                      NESA ​Common Grade Scale

           The Common Marking Scale describes performance at each of five grade levels:

   Grade                         Level of Achievement Performance Descriptor
     A       The student has an extensive knowledge and understanding of the content and can readily apply
             this knowledge. In addition, the student has achieved an ​extensive ​level of competence in the
             processes and skills and can apply these skills to new situations
     B       The student has a thorough knowledge and understanding of the content and a​ thorough​ level
             of competence in the processes and skills. In addition, the student is able to apply this
             knowledge and these skills to most situations.
     C       The student has a sound knowledge and understanding of the main areas of content and has
             achieved a ​sound​ level of competence in the processes and skills.
     D       The student has a basic​ ​knowledge and understanding of the content and has achieved a ​basic
             level of competence in the processes and skills.
     E       The student has an elementary knowledge and understanding in few areas of the content and
             has achieved an ​elementary​ level of 3competence in some of the processes and skills.

  (The exception is that at end of Year 10, grades A10, A9, B8, B7, C6, C5, D4, D3 and E2 will
  be used for Mathematics)

  Assessment of a course will be in the prescribed ​Areas for Assessment​ for each course as
  indicated on the Stage 5 ​Course Performance Descriptors​ for that course.​ Course
  Performance Descriptors​ are a series of statements for each specific course issued by NESA.
  They summarise the observable and measurable features of student achievement and assist in the
  awarding of grades to students based on levels of achievement. More details on Stage 5
  assessment will be presented in the 2018 Assessment Handbook, issued in Term 1, 2018.

                                               Big History
Course Description:
Big History examines our past, explains our present and imagines our future. Journey through nearly 14
billion years of history. It's a story about us. It is an idea that arose from a desire to go beyond specialized
and self-contained fields of study to grasp history as a whole. This growing, multi-disciplinary approach is
focused on high school students, yet designed for anyone seeking answers to the big questions about the
history of our Universe.

What will students learn about?

The​ ​Universe
The Universe started simply with a burst of energy. As it developed over billions of years, stars were born;
new complexities emerge, setting the stage for radical change.

Our Solar system & Earth
The birth and death of stars leave an aftermath of matter, gas, and clouds of dust. Through gravity,
accretion, and random collisions, new complex forms of matter grow to become galaxies, the Earth, and
even living organisms.

Life
What makes life on Earth so special? How do you explain its diversity? And what exactly is it? How life
emerged remains a mystery, but we've learned that life is fragile in the face of gradual and sudden change.
Just ask the dinosaurs.

Humans
Powerful brains. Precise language. Humans have a knack for gathering, preserving, and sharing
information. We use these skills to create entirely new forms of complexity, making us the most powerful
force of change on the planet.

The Future
What does 13.8 billion years of history tell us? How does knowing so much about the past influence how
we think about the future? These may be the most important questions Big History asks.

What will students learn to do?
Today we have more information available to us on our phones than was available in all the great libraries
of Alexandria. How do we decide what claims we can trust? Big History teaches students to examine their
intuition, looking at the authority, evidence, and logic of claims across disciplines and scales. Students
learn to apply a thoughtful, consistent, and rigorous approach to engaging with new ideas and information
and using evidence to construct effective arguments.

Record Of School Achievement (RoSA)
Satisfactory completion of 200 hours of study of Big History during Stage
5 will be recorded with a grade on the student’s Record of School Achievement.

of dance (space, time and dynamics) and how they are used in, and link, the three practices. They will
learn about performing dances with an awareness of safe dance practice, dance technique and performance
quality. They will learn about how dance expresses ideas, feelings and experiences as they construct dance
compositions to communicate ideas. They learn about people, culture and society as they study and
analyse dance performances, compositions and dance works of art.

What will students learn to do?

Students will learn to develop an articulate body as they perform a range of dances in a variety of styles
with a working knowledge of safe dance practice. They will learn to structure movement as they compose
dances to express their ideas, feelings and experiences. They will learn to use the language of dance and to
describe movements using the elements of dance as they view, discuss, read and write about dance.
Drawing from their experiences gained in performing, composing and appreciating dances, they will learn
