Depending on student numbers, interest, and staffing availability these may change year to year.
The lower secondary school curriculum at Byford Secondary College follows the Western Australian Curriculum and provides students with a range of subjects that fit their needs and/or interests and in which they may ultimately specialise in Senior School. Students are enrolled in the standard class set: Maths, Language, Science, English, Humanities and Physical Education/Health. Students move through rotational Arts programs like dance, and visual arts.
These lists are reviewed annually by our Leaning Area Leaders and the College Board in ensure that all items are relevant.
Students will need to have a device in their possession each school day in order to maximise participation in the learning opportunities and activities presented in their classroom. Apple and windows devices should be used within the school.
If your child is enrolling in media type classes, consider getting a larger capacity device to store recorded video.
While you may source your device from anywhere, the College has partnered with two companies that provide discounted or special rates on devices.
The College makes every effort to protect students from inappropriate websites, and we recommend that safe internet practices are followed outside of the College as well. Running services such as VPNs to evade restrictions will result in the device being banned from our network. Please see our IT policy at https://byfordsc.wa.edu.au/policies Private insurance of your student’s device is strongly recommended as the college is not liable for any damage to personal items.
