When choosing a program of study for Years 11 and 12, boys and girls should seek advice concerning post-school options; keep an open mind about these options, and choose subjects which they find interesting. Students are encouraged to seek advice from Heads of Departments, the Careers Advisor, their pastoral care Advisor, the Director of Studies or the Director of Pastoral Care to assist them in making their subject selection. More information appears in the Stage 6 Year 11-12 Subject Handbook.
In Year 11, the Activities program is at its most expansive, with students choosing one of three options. In addition to Cadets, students can opt to gain their surf bronze medallion through Surf Life Saving (in conjunction with Sawtell SLSC) or achieve entry-level qualifications as a Bush Firefighter as part of the TAS Rural Fire Service program.
Adventure expeditions including the Kokoda Track, the 111km overnight Hawkesbury Canoe Classic and pursuit of Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh Awards are other avenues of opportunity Year 11 boys are encouraged to pursue.
By Term 4, Year 11 boys and girls take on the full student leadership of the school, having become young men and women of courage, compassion and zeal.
