COURSE COUNSELLING AND SUBJECT SELECTION FOR 2019

The important process of course counselling and subject selection for 2019 is continuing during Term 3 for all current Year 8 to 11 students.

 

Specific information about the process for each year level and group of students has been provided through parent letters that were distributed with the Term 2 reports and sent home via email.

 

Students are thinking about their study, education and career pathways and families are making decisions about what will be studied next year.

 

The curriculum handbook provides information about the subjects available to students at each year level and can be accessed online at http://www.aphs.sa.edu.au/web/node/15. You can also access the information and presentations provided at recent parent/caregiver information evenings via this link.

 

Year 8, 9 and 1st Year Ignite students will return their completed and signed 2019 subject selection forms to their Home Group teacher this week. Home Group teachers will then work with students to enter their subject selections online.
