					INTRODUCTION
Le Fevre High School is a comprehensive school catering for students from Year 8 to Year 12. We are
designated as an Adult Re-entry school, a school for the Engineering Pathways and many other
vocational programs, and one of six Discovery schools in SA.

In Years 8 and 9 (Middle Schooling years) the curriculum offered is based upon the Department of
Education, Training, Employment and Children Services (DECD) policy document the South Australian
Curriculum, Standards and Accountability (SACSA) Framework which has divided learning into eight
areas. We believe that students should study in each of these areas with increasing choice as they
move through the school. The application of the principles of Middle Schooling means that students in
Years 8 and 9 have contact with fewer teachers than in more senior years. Students spend more time
with a smaller number of teachers which allows greater flexibility in program delivery. With less
movement of teachers and students there is opportunity for quality relationships to develop, a factor
that greatly enhances student learning.

In Year 10 the curriculum offered is seen as a transition from Middle Schooling to the Senior School.
Students have more subject choice than in Years 8 and 9, preparing for Years 11 and 12 where SACE
pattern and career aspirations guide subject choice.

In the senior years we offer courses in Stages 1 and 2 of the South Australian Certificate of Education
and there are many opportunities for Vocational Education and Training (VET) credit for SACE studies
and for credit to be gained for extra-curricular activities.

We provide a range of pathways to ensure students are successful when leaving school in gaining
employment, training or entry into TAFE or university.

Le Fevre High School is one of the leaders in Vocational Education and Training (VET) in South
Australia with well-established links with local businesses and industry.

Le Fevre High School would like to publicly acknowledge the ongoing support and partnerships with
the wider community including Business and Industry. The benefits to students are enormous. We

    CURRICULUM
                                           YEAR 10 CURRICULUM

    Year 10 is seen as the transition from the structure of the Middle School to that of the Senior School.
    To reflect this there is greater opportunity for students to select their subjects while still being
    required to select according to a pattern, as occurs in Year 11 when students use the SACE pattern
    and career pathways as guides for subject choices.

    Opportunity for commencing SACE studies occurs in a range of subjects that include Leadership, Rock
    Eisteddfod, Information Processing and Publishing, Energy Technology, Active 8 and Work and Life
    skills.

                                 COMPULSORY SUBJECTS
                                 All students study the following subjects:
                                 English                               2 units
                                 Mathematics                           2 units
                                 Science                               2 units

Completion of Secondary Education can lead to many opportunities. The following pages show some
subject groupings, which lead in certain directions. These do not make up packages in the same way
as Engineering Pathways, Business (Small Business Management), Multimedia or Information
Technology as the following ones are more flexible. Students are able to select from the subjects
offered without the need to select all of the subjects listed.

It is also a useful guide in thinking and planning about future options that may interest students.
