Subject Selection is an opportunity for us to engage with students and families through active conversations to support them on their journey at Thomas Carr College and as they pursue future pathways.

2024 Subject Selection

Subject selection is an important part in supporting students as they transition from year to year and the conversations throughout this period aim to provide students with an insight into their future. The decisions made also contribute to our broader vision in fostering a culture of excellence from Years 7 to 12.

On Thursday 10 August, students in Years 9 and 10 attended individual Subject Selection Interviews to finalise their subject preferences for next year. I congratulate all the students who attended these interviews for the way they engaged in these conversations and for the thought they have given to selecting their subjects for next year.

Students in Years 8 and 11 have also entered their subjects for next year and I wish to acknowledge the work of all our staff in supporting students throughout the subject selection process.

We also appreciate your continued support and involvement in this process, and hope you had the opportunity to enjoy the conversations with your son or daughter about their aspirations and future pathways as they selected their subjects for 2024.

If you still have any questions related to the subject selection process, please contact Mr. Stephen Manitta (Head of Learning and Teaching – Middle School) or Mrs. Daniela Bombardieri-Szabo (Head of Learning and Teaching – Senior School).

Questions related to the College’s Applied Learning programs and to learn more about the VET subjects offered at Year 10 and within the Senior School, please contact Mr. John Bassi (Applied Learning & Vocational Training Leader).

Students will receive confirmation of their subject choices for 2024 at the end of Term Three.
