The Electives Program at Preshil is designed to broaden students’ learning within and beyond the curriculum. Providing opportunity for interdisciplinary experiences, with weekly classes offering the possibility of challenging, extending or deepening knowledge in a specific area of study, or of igniting a passion for what was previously a general interest. Staff, parents, past students and supporters outside of the immediate school community can offer a subject about which they are passionate and have specialist knowledge.
Each term, students from Prep to Year 6, and Years 7 to 10 choose a subject from a variety of topic areas including Health and Wellbeing, Sport and Physical Development, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths) and Community or School Partnerships. The areas of study offer an ever-growing selection of activities for different age groups and foster Preshil’s enduring commitment to making, choosing, building, playmaking and performing, as described below and in our Courage book.
