Year 10s can look forward to an exciting and
challenging year during which they will experience the pleasures
and demands of their outdoor education camp, work experience and
course information sessions in preparation for Year 11.
Year 10 is filled with opportunities for social
growth and academic achievement. There are many activities in the
mainstream of school life as well as in cocurricular areas. Girls
are encouraged to follow their interests and become involved in
all aspects of school life.
As part of a supportive pastoral program, tutors
work with their tutor groups to monitor student progress and guide
and assist girls throughout the year. Girls have the benefit of
interesting visiting speakers who address them on pertinent issues
such as health and drug education. They also learn about safety
in the cyber world, friendships, community awareness and a variety
of life skills.
