Year 10

Wellbeing and Career Pathways are the focus for the Year 10 level at Melbourne Girls’ College. We place great importance on our students being aware of their personal wellbeing and beginning their journey of choosing career pathways with confidence and positivity.

Year 10 students are encouraged to take on new elective subjects and possibly accelerated to do a VCE subject if they meet the requirements.

The Year 10 Wellbeing Camp takes place during Term 2, where the students complete various activities to build teamwork and collaboration skills to bond as a year level. The camp aims to give the students the tools to deal with issues that may arise during the year and a safe environment allowing them to relax and start making decisions for their futures.

Throughout the school year, the Year 10 students also participate and complete a variety of career support programs and subject counselling, so they are able to make confident choices in their future decisions. Students also participate in work experience during the first week of December in a work placement of their choice. Career Counselling can be accessed at any time through our Careers Advisor.

Year 10 is the beginning of the Senior School at Melbourne Girls’ College and our students are encouraged to challenge themselves and to become an active member of the school community.
