Subject Information

Year 9

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. Year 9 students will study a combination of subjects that provide a range of valuable experiences, eventually leading to the successful completion of the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).

All Year 9 students study a combination of compulsory subjects and choice subjects. Students should make their choices based on their own interests and the direction they are aiming for in the senior years. Year 9’s choose 4 Choice Subjects to be studied throughout the year. Most Year 9 Choice Subjects are one semester in length.  However, some subjects must be studied for a Full Year.

We know that for students to be successful in Senior School, they need to have practised 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 go 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 have the greatest opportunity for success.
