New Years 7 and 8 Elective program
Date: October 30, 2017
An electives program for Years 7 and 8 students will be implemented from 2018 for the very first time at St Paul’s Anglican Grammar School.
The ‘Choose your own adventure’ electives program allows St Paul’s students to participate in these exciting electives much earlier than Year 9 and onwards which was where the elective program began in the past.
The 2018 Year 7 cohort were very excited to hear the news at their recent ‘Friendship Morning’ which is a part of their transition process from Primary School to Secondary School.
The subjects that they can choose from include: Gamers – IT and Games Programming; Architecture and Design; Musical Theatre; Robotics; Art in 3D; Making Stuff that Moves (Creatively imagining, designing and building products with moving parts); Drama – Make a Scene!; Foodies – Experimentation and creativity in the kitchen; Photos in Motion (Photography, studio art, media and animation); Music Performance; A Slice of Art; Textiles – Designers in the Making; and Dance.
To ensure students still experience a breadth of fields with an education that is rich in discovery, they will be required to select two Performing Arts subjects, two Visual Art subjects, two Technology subjects, with a further two from any category across the two years.
