2018 Subject Selection Process Department Displays 2 Acknowledgement of Land We, Sacred Heart Girls College Community, acknowledge that we gather on land for which the Wurundjeri people are traditional custodians. We remember their forebears with respect and commit ourselves to working for reconciliation and justice. Prayer Gracious God, We gather as a community open to Your word and Your

works. During our time of seeking and learning together, mold, shape, and transform us. Give us a mind that engages with Your word and seeks to understand Your truth in this complex world. Tree of Knowledge 4 Give us ears to be attentive to Your voice in the world and to hear what we have not heard before. Give us eyes to see You in all of your children on this earth and to see our world from new perspectives. Give us a willing heart to be open to others and to nurture deep solidarity with the human

community. 5 Intercessions Growing in Christ Leader: We are gathered in the heart of Gods Spirit who dwells eternally within and beyond us. All: You are with us, God of life and goodness. Leader: May our lives be planted in love and built on love, so that every decision may be patterned on the mind of Christ. All: May we grow in all ways into Christ. Leader: May we see with the eyes of faith and reach out with the compassion of Christ to those who are troubled or in need. 6

Intercessions All: May Christ live in our hearts through faith. Leader: God of Jesus Christ, you have drawn us together as people of faith. May the love that is in us, like a small seed planted by your hand, grow stronger each day as we embrace the breadth of opportunities made available to us at Sacred Heart. All: May we strive to be more like Christ in the way we live and reach out to others. Amen 7 Subject Selection Process 1. Careers Fast Track Program 2.

Studies with Insufficient demand will be withdrawn at the schools discretion. In selecting a course of study students should be aware of the following advice, published by VCAA. Students may enter studies at the level of Unit 1, 2 or 3. In some studies, students are advised to complete either or both Units 1 and 2 before attempting Unit 3, or have equivalent experience, or be willing to undertake some preparation.

In some instances, the College will recommend Units 1 and 2 have been successfully completed, students should discuss this with their

teachers. e.g. Chemistry or Physics. 14 VCE at Sacred Heart Sacred Heart students complete: 23 units Year 11 students: 7 subjects (13 units) Year 12 students: 5 subjects (10 units) Some students complete VET studies English and the RE options are compulsory Why more than the minimum?
