2020 Subject Selections


Targeted planning and research of individual student pathways underpin the subject selection process at Adelaide High School.

Pastoral Care Group Teachers will work with students to ensure prerequisites for particular subject choices and post-secondary pathways are met. In Pastoral Care Group students will be exposed to a targeted program to allow them to select correct subjects for their learning and future study needs.

Students will be uploading their selections to an online selections program called Web Preferences. 

Middle School Subject Selections

The Middle School subject selections for Years 8 into 9 and 9 into 10 will be completed in Pastoral Care Group. Year 8 & 9 students selecting subjects for 2020 will do this with their Pastoral Care teacher during the term and must have parent approval prior to submitting subject preferences for 2020. 

Senior School Subject Selections

The Senior School subject selections for Year 10 into 11 and 11 into 12 will be completed via a conference with a subject counsellor. Please make an appointment time using the SOBS online booking system.

The Year 10 into 11 Subject Counselling day will occur on Tuesday 20/8/19
