Year 10 Curriculum

Year 10 Curriculum

Building on the foundations laid in Years 7 to 9, Year 10 aims to address the needs of our students as they prepare for their final years of secondary schooling.

Each student studies the Core subjects, and then choses 2 electives from our extensive range, which includes Vocational Education & Training options.

The second semester of Year 10 is designed as a transition period for students about to enter Senior schooling. Students may select a range of electives more closely aligned to those offered in the Senior School.

Our vocational subjects provide a smooth transition from school to work. Students may also undertake on-the-job training through School Based Traineeships, Structured Work Placement or Work Experience.

Core subjects

  • Religion
  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Humanities (History and Geography)
  • Health and Physical Education


Elective subjects

  • Certificate I Hospitality (SIT10222)
  • Food & Fibre Production
  • Engineering Principles & Systems (Metalwork)
  • Materials & Technologies Specialisations (Woodwork)
  • Digital Technologies
  • Drama
  • Music
  • Visual Art

A range of school events and resources assist Year 10 students and their parents to establish the Senior Educational and Training (SET) Plan, ahead of study in Years 11 and 12. Establishing a balanced subject array that will excite and engage each learners abilities and post-school preferences, is the over-arching goal of the process.

Good Shepherd Catholic College is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO Code: 31073)
