Subject Information

Year 8

All students in Year 8 study a range of Australian Curriculum subjects.  Murray Bridge High School aims to provide every student with the knowledge, understanding and skills that provide a foundation for successful and lifelong learning and participation in the Australian community.  High Expectations will be set for all students.  All Year 8 students will study a combination of subjects that provide a range of valuable experiences and lead to the successful completion of the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).

We know that for students to be successful in Senior School, they need to have practiced and mastered the skills presented in classes from Year 8 through to Year 10 in all subject areas.  Students who do not demonstrate competency in the subjects of the year level they are currently in will not automatically progress to the next year level.  This decision has been endorsed by Governing Council.  The school will work individually with students and parents/caregivers in order to provide the tools for a student to prove competency and lift work ethic.
