What to do after Year 11?

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.      Steve Jobs

Subject Option Choice for Year 8

 What shall I choose ?

We all have to make choices all the time; what to eat, what to wear, where to go etc, We do some choices automatically, but other choices need more time and more effort, such as the choice of subjects . Whatever we choose will effect us and also the people around us. It is thus important to think well before we choose. The information below will help you make the right choice.  

Below is the full list of subjects that students can choose from. Click on subjects for more information:

Every decision is easy once you make it. The important thing is to think carefully, make your decision, and then work to make your choice the right one.

A fish and a monkey enter a classroom

"The classroom is full of different animals, fish and monkeys, but also squirrels, penguins, birds, dogs, cats and sheep. It’s a nice mix. The teacher comes into the classroom and tells them that there will be an exam today. He opens the window and points towards a tree. The test consists of climbing that tree. The fish cannot move from their water and the sheep are looking at each other puzzlingly. The penguins have already accepted they will fail. The birds know it will require little effort. The monkeys and cats need to plan a bit how they will climb the tree, but it shouldn’t be too difficult. The dogs will find it quite a struggle."(Hon Evarist Bartolo Minister for Education and Employment, 30 November 2016)

An improved educational system, catering for the needs of all...  

                               My journey (2018).. Ready to launch!!

 Equitable Quality Education for All

My Journey: Achieving through different paths will replace the current secondary school
 model with personalised, relevant and quality education for all students. 
In other words it will be structured for students’ needs ... and not the other way round.

How will it work?

Alongside their compulsory core subjects, My Journey: Achieving through different paths, 
will allow secondary school students to blend relevant and quality academic, applied 
and vocational subjects, in a personalised and inclusive learning environment enabling
 them to reach their full potential.
Under the proposed new education system, students will still be able to follow the 
traditional academic path. This will not be abolished but added to it. But they’ll also be 
able to choose applied and vocational learning programmes as optional subjects. 
...all under one roof.
What’s more, My Journey: Achieving through different paths, will give equal value to
 academic applied, and vocational learning programmes.
So students will be able to sit for different forms of learning and assessments, have the 
opportunity to reach the same level of qualifications and be equally employable regardless 
of the blends of options they’ll choose to study.
It’s time to improve on what we have, 
and try to build an education
 where children enjoy going to school everyday.
