Subject information

Students learn in a community context and interact with teachers, peers, and community members. They decide the focus of their community activity/community application activity, which begins from a point of personal interest, skill, or knowledge.

By setting challenging and achievable goals in their community activity/community application activity, students enhance their knowledge and understanding in a guided and supported learning program. They develop their capacity to work independently and to apply their skills and knowledge in practical ways in their community.

Subject Outline 2017 [DOC 214KB]

Online submission of externally assessed materials starts on 23 October.
We encourage you to practice in our sandpit now so when 23 October arrives you can say "I've got this".

Need more information? Read our sandpit guide [PDF 92KB] and FAQs and watch our instructional videos.

Thank you for leading the way in the SACE modernisation.

Changes to moderation sample selection
