Middle School Curriculum

Year 7 to Year 9


At St James Lutheran College, we acknowledge the unique needs of learners in the Middle School, and have therefore designed our curriculum program to meet the needs of adolescents for a sense of belonging and an inquiry-based learning environment, as well as opportunities to work as corporate beings in a group context and engage their creative sensibilities.



The core curriculum offering in the Middle School comprises of;

•    Christian Studies
•    English
•    Mathematics
•    Science
•    Humanities (History/ Geography) and
•    Health and Physical Education (HPE).

Appropriately qualified key teachers in each area within dedicated classroom environments drive these learning experiences.

Year 9 students select three of the following nine elective subjects per semester.

  • Language Other Than English (LOTE) - Japanese
  • Music
  • Dance/Drama 
  • Visual Arts
  • Design & Technology
  • Hospitality
  • Sports Excellence
  • Information Communication Technology
  • Marine Studies
