Curriculum

Learning at Weeroona College Bendigo

At Weeroona College Bendigo our program for Student Learning is designed to cater for every student’s learning needs. Students at Weeroona College Bendigo are actively engaged in their learning which is personalised according to their needs and interests. Our students are independent; know what they need to learn and our teachers challenge and support them to achieve personal excellence.

When students begin their secondary school journey at Year 7, they study 6 core subjects for the first 2 years, whilst sampling subjects from our specialist areas for a semester each.

During Year 8, students are asked to begin thinking about pathways for their future studies. They then have the opportunity to select from a range of electives which offer pathways through to post year 10.

During years 9 and 10, students study four core subjects and are expected to select a specialist Physical Education elective. Within the elective program students are able to choose from a range of introductory electives though to Vocational Education Training (VET) and Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) options. During Year 10 students begin planning their pathways in VCE, VET and Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL).
