Year 7-9 Curriculum

Kambrya College strives to promote positive student learning outcomes and experiences through its Year 7-9 curriculum, which is delivered through the Victorian Essential Learning Standards in alignment with the Australian Curriculum.

At Years 7 and 8 students undertake studies in all core domains of English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, The Arts, Technology, Health and Physical Education and Language other than English (LOTE). Improving Numeracy and Literacy is a priority at the College; therefore all students in Year 7 and Year 8 have access to intensive Numeracy and Literacy instruction as part of their weekly learning program.

Kambrya College offers a Select Entry Accelerated Learning program for students in Year 7-10. Students in this program are carefully selected by a process of external testing, written application and portfolio. The SEAL program effectively extends and challenges our high performing students to achieve their personal best in all areas. Please see the Select Entry tab of the website for further information.

At Year 9, the Darrabi (‘awaken’ in the Woiwurrung language) Program is an all-boys class designed for students who, for a variety of reasons, are disengaged from their learning or who are not thriving within the normal classroom environment. The program has a strong community links and a group project focus with an emphasis on developing students as more self-aware learners. For more information, please see Year 9 Darrabi tab under Teaching and Learning.

At Year 9, in addition to the core domains of English, Mathematics, Science and Humanities, students are able to choose two subjects per semester from a range of electives. These electives are developed to include student choice; student initiated learning; experiential learning; community education; goal setting and a combination of individual and group work.
