Year 9

Conducted in an off-main campus space that creates a unique learning environment.


Continuing the integrated approach to learning, teams of students and staff work together to learn more about themselves and about ‘who they are’ as learners. It is our firm belief that your child must know who they are in order to grow as a learner. At Catholic College Wodonga we successfully provide a bridge from the junior to the senior school.

Vertical Learning

We are introducing changes to the curriculum structure for Years 9 and 10 from 2020. This means more subject choices and opportunities for students to engage and develop. From 2019 Year 9 students are taking part in a subject selection process where they can, potentially, study what were traditionally Year 11 subjects in Year 10.

The RITE Journey

This internationally recognised program is where classes are split according to gender, allows for more substantial self-development. It generates bonds between peers and staff that are necessary for academic and personal success in the future. The program culminates in a camp – an experience where personal growth and an awareness of our place in the world is highlighted – and students are challenged to be the best they can be.

We encourage you to discover out more about The RITE Journey approach.


A major reason for the success of our Year 9 program is where it is run … on the other side of Bowman Court, in a stand alone, designated Year 9 only area. We call this space Nganala, a Dhuduroa word for ‘All Together’.

The benefits of being so close to main campus, yet independent of it, are clear and numerous. Nganala provides a safe place for your child to develop powerful relationships with their peers and staff, yet being close enough to the main campus doesn’t limit options and possibilities of deep learning. Our Year 9s take pride and ownership of Nganala and we’re proud of the opportunities it offers.
