Years 9 to 10 – Choice and challenge

Choosing his path in life

In this phase boys make their own subject choices and discover their strengths, beginning the process of making decisions to align with their future careers. Taking personal responsibility for learning is given greater focus and creativity is encouraged.

Exposure to challenging outdoor activities, combined with the compulsory engagement in the Year 10 cadet program (Army, Surf Lifesaving or Environment and Community) gives boys’ opportunities in leadership, teamwork, service and commitment. In the sporting domain, the skill level and intensity of competition increases significantly.

Boys can explore global opportunities through the Beyond Queenslea Drive exchange program or choose from a host of sporting, cultural and service tours to interstate and overseas destinations.
