While still in the Useful Information menu, read through the information relevant to your Year Level.
From the menu, click on “Possible Courses” and start exploring the different courses by reading the information about the course.
If you like a course you can add it to your favourites by clicking the green "Add to your Favourite Courses" button.
Clicking on “Learning Areas” will show boxes with a number to indicate you have to take a subject in that Learning Area e.g. in Year 11 you have to take English and Mathematics but not Physical Education and Health.
Click on the other menu items to familiarise yourself with the SchoolPoint website.
Subject Selection Timeline - when online selection will be enabled:
When Subject Selection is enabled for your Year Level, have a final check of the information about the course, what you will be learning about, what courses it leads to, possible careers, any course costs, required prior learning and what standards you will be assessed against. If that is a course you want to select then click on the green “+ Select as one of my courses” button.
The course you just selected will appear on the right of the screen. Click on one of the other learning areas and repeat the process.
You are able to pick ‘back-up’ courses if you want, but you do not have to. These will help you and your Dean if one of your selected courses is not available because of numbers, staffing or timetable constraints.
Once you have selected all your courses, click on “My Selected Courses” on the left. Check the list of courses, and then click on “Complete My Courses”.
You are able to make changes to your selections up until your parent/caregiver signs in with their login details and approves your course selection. After that, you will need to contact your Dean for further possible changes.
DISCUSS POSSIBLE SENIOR SUBJECTS WITH YOUR PARENTS AND GET ADVICE FROM CAREERS STAFF IN THE LIBRARY ON TUESDAYS, WEDNESDAYS AND THURSDAYS FROM WEEK 5 TO WEEK 8 DURING TERM 3.
