Information for Year 10 about Senior Courses

June 2, 2020

Dear Parents, Carers and Students

The progression from High School to College can be a liberating and exciting time for Year 10 students. Students may also have a lot of questions or may feel a bit anxious at the options before them.

We aim to make the transition as smooth as possible. Students do not need to re-enrol for College at SFX.  We provide students with support and guidance in choosing their Courses and Packages.

Courses and Packages

Courses are the subjects students choose to study. Packages are made up of the various Courses. There are two package options Tertiary or Accredited.

Choosing Courses

Due to COVID 19 our Senior Course Information Evening is unable to go ahead as usual. Instead, students will participate in a range of experiences and activities during school hours to assist them in choosing their courses for Year 11 and 12.

Parents are unable to attend these events due to COVID 19 restrictions. We ask parents during Week 8-10 to discuss the course options with their children, visit our website and email Study Coordinators.

Parents/Student Course Counselling Interviews

Students will be required to attend a Course Counselling Interview with a parent and a senior teacher early Term 3.  Times and dates to be advised.

Parents/Carers Questions

We understand that you may have questions regarding your child’s chosen Courses and Package. We encourage you to:

  • Visit the website at the start of Week 8 for the latest Course information
  • Ask questions via the contact form in each Course section of the website
  • Email Study Coordinators directly any questions


If you have any questions about this process, please email me – tracey.potter@sfx.act.edu.au
