Year 7 Subjects
In Year 7 all students follow a common course of study and stay in Home Groups for all classes. The Curriculum follows the design laid out in the Victorian Curriculum to run over a 2 year period.
The Curriculum for Year 7 has been designed to provide all students with a solid foundation across the 8 Essential Learning Areas: English, Mathematics, Science, Health & Physical Education, Language, Humanities, Arts and Design/Technology.
Students who are priorities have been identified through Naplan results and teacher judgement. At BCC, in 2023, students in Years 8, 9 and 10, identified to receive MYLNS support, will have a second specialist teacher in their English and Maths classes. Students in the MYLNS classes, in Years 8, will also receive an extra literacy and Numeracy class a week to build on skills to support Maths capabilities.
TLI (Tutor Learning Initiative) is a DET initiative aimed at providing support to students whose learning growth was impacted from working remotely due to COVID. Tutors are either fully registered teachers or preservice teachers. Tutoring occurs through supporting students 1:1, in small groups and in class support.
