Subject Selection & PST Interviews



The Subject Selection Process is very significant in the lives of our students. It is an important time for students to make decisions based on their interests and future pathways. It can also be a challenging time, with students requiring support from parents, carers and teachers to work through the range of options open to them.

Following the recent Subject Selection Information Evening, all students should now have a hard copy of the ‘Subject Selection Form’. This is to be completed and signed by the student, parent and mentor.

To explore subject offerings visit the Subject Selection Information page via PAM.

Years 8 and 12 in 2020

Students entering Year 8 and Year 12 in 2020 will complete their Subject Selection online with their mentor prior to Parent/Student/Teacher (PST) interviews, however you are welcome to make an appointment during the PST interviews if required.

Years 9, 10 and 11 in 2020

Students entering Years 9, 10 and 11 in 2020 are required to book a 10-minute interview with their Mentor in addition to their Subject Teachers at Parent/Student/Teacher interviews.

Bring the completed/signed Subject Selection planning form and the mentor will complete the electronic application during the interview.
