Course Counselling

COURSE COUNSELLING

VVSS places a strong emphasis on the importance of an inclusive course counselling process where students, families and staff are all involved in providing specialist advice regarding the selection of courses for students. Parents and caregivers are invited to discuss student requirements with course counselling staff at any time. Students should select courses that suit their abilities, their interests and their post-school aspirations.

Curriculum Guide

The Curriculum Guide provides students and families with information regarding the learning programs offered at Valley View Secondary School and specific Course Descriptions of subjects within these programs.

Students and families are encouraged to explore the Curriculum Guide to plan possible options and pathways of study.  It should be used in conjunction with subject selection processes and Course Confirmation interviews.
