Subject Selection

2018 Subject Selection is just around the corner. Next week, boys in Years 8 – 11 will have assemblies devoted to subject selection. On Tuesday 27 June, there will be a Subject Selection Information Night for parents of boys currently in Years 8 – 11. A letter containing details of this Information Night was sent home with the boys last week.  This letter has also been emailed to parents / guardians.

I am pleased to announce that a number of new subjects will be offered for the first time in 2018. Brief details appear in the below. For more comprehensive information concerning all matters relating to subject selection, please visit the Subject Selection page under Learning on Salesian Live. Alternatively, please click HERE to be directed to the Subject Selection page.
