Curriculum - Years 7 and 8

The Year 7 Curriculum

In Year 7, students study the full-year core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, Physical Education and the Pastoral Care programme. Year 7 students also complete a semester (two terms) each of Food Technology and Information Technology. Students will also have the opportunity of studying a foreign language. They may either study French or Japanese. Some students may have been recommended for Study Support because they need support in literacy skills or are having difficulties in reading and writing.

In addition to the core subjects BMG offers a Creative and Performing Arts programme that enables students to have a wide range of experiences during Year 7 and 8. In 2010 this program will include Music, Drama, Choir, and The Arts.

The Year 8 Curriculum

In Year 8, students continue to study the same subjects as in Year 9: i.e. the full-year core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, Physical Education and the Pastoral Care programme, a semester (two terms) each of Food & Technology and Information Technology, and they will continue to have the opportunity to study a foreign language (either French or Japanese). Other students will continue their work in Study Support in lieu of a foreign language. 

In addition to the core subjects we continue to offer an Arts Program that enables students to experience a range of performing and visual arts during Year 7 and 8. In 2010 this program will continue to include Music, Drama, Choir and The Arts.
