Years 9 and 10


Welcome to Experiences!

The Saint Stephen’s College Experiences Program guides students (and their parents and guardians) through Years 9 and 10.

The teaching team is focused on providing the particular mode of academic and pastoral care support that our students need.

Our aim is to provide our students with a flexible array of subject choices and education pathways that are built upon a strong foundation of skills for lifelong learning.

Experiences Curriculum

All students in the Experiences Program study subjects across the core curriculum areas of English, History, Mathematics, Physical Education and Science.

A range of additional opportunities including specialist subjects, elective subjects, school-based traineeships, APS Sports and extra-curricular activities enhances this core curriculum.

The Experiences Program culminates in Work Experience and Senior Education and Training (SET) Plan interviews, which are designed to clarify what each student aims to achieve before and after they finish their schooling. The Experiences Program teaching team focuses on supporting students as they discover and consider the study and career pathways available to them.

Barefoot in the Park

As part of Under 8s Week, students in Prep to Year 3 participated in our annual Barefoot in the Park morning, which honours all the fun of being a child and learning through play.

Barefoot in the Park is traditionally held during Children’s or Under 8s Week. Schools, child care centres, community groups, churches libraries, businesses and federal, state anf local government agencies all celebrate in many ways, with Barefoot in the Park events being just one of these.
