Middle school handbook
Welcome to the Middle School Handbook.
Students learn best when they have access to programs that cater for their individual needs and talents. At Lyndhurst Secondary College, we ensure that the curriculum offers a rich and diverse range of learning opportunities that take into account both needs and interests.
Our Middle School program aims to support students in continuing the fundamentals of their learning program, whilst affording them increasing opportunity for choice in their directions. This allows students to begin to explore the vocational and educational possibilities open to them.
Students are guaranteed access to all subject disciplines as described in the Department of Education’s Victorian Curriculum. Learning is centred around a core program comprising English, Mathematics, Humanities and Science.
In Year 7 and 8, subjects will include Arts – visual and performing, English, PE, Humanities, Languages, Mathematics, Science – STEM and Technologies including textiles, cooking, digital and design.
In Year 9, Students can then select additional preferred subjects to compliment their Core subjects, ensuring a balance between a broad preparation for Year 10 and the chance to explore possible pathways that may be of interest.
Further to this, students may also choose to select LOTE and/or Science Extension.
For more detailed information about Subject choices for Year 9 students and to make your selections, see the Course handbook below.
Course counselling for Year 8 students moving into Year 9 in 2023 will take place on Wednesday 27th July. Check compass for more information.
Scheduling your course counselling session can be completed via Compass under the Community Tab and selecting Conferences.
