‘Stand Up and Stay Up’
The Curriculum Leader for Senior School has challenged each student to make a positive contribution to Aquinas College by ‘Standing Up and Staying Up’ in 2015. This theme encourages students to actively participate as Leaders in the senior school and to become positive role models across the College community.
‘Stand Up and Stay Up’ also inspires our students to strive to achieve their best academically. Students at Aquinas College are provided with a diverse curriculum that focuses on our Culture of Learning. Students are encouraged to actively engage in all aspects of College life.
The focus of Year 11 is to allow students to tailor their own academic pathway. Students have been given extensive guidance in selecting appropriate pathways and subjects to meet individual needs. The opportunity for students to choose their curriculum allows them to shape their own program to their own interests, abilities and future study pathways. All students are encouraged to achieve their potential regardless of the pathway chosen in Years 11 and 12.
Year 11 students construct a course of study from a range of subjects, which are designed and moderated by the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA), formerly the Queensland Studies Authority (QSA). Students will normally study six QCAA subjects for a total of four semesters in each.
• (A) Study of Religion or Religion and
