Students must choose two electives from Arts, Technology, Health and Physical Education. Students can only choose one elective per learning area. NOTE:  Students who wish to study Languages (French) must select this for Semester 1 and are then removed from class for 2 X 35 minute sessions in Semester 2 for conversation practice. The timing of these sessions will be rotated throughout the semester to avoid missing the same classes each week.

Many of these electives incur a subject fee due to the materials used by the students in these programs. Payment of these fees is required for the subject to be confirmed in the student’s program. Costs associated with each elective are stated in the subject description included in this booklet.
