At Leichhardt Campus we try to ensure all students have varied and deep opportunities to study electives in year 9 and 10 (Stage 5) that inspire and open pathways for future studies.

VIBE: 100 Hour Electives

Year 9 and year 10 will have an opportunity to select a VIBE (Various Interest based Electives) to offer engagement and enrichment opportunities for students. These courses will run as one year 100 hours (one to be completed in Year 9 and one to be completed in Year 10) This interest/enrichment elective will not form part of the Record of School Achievement. (ROSA). The VIBE engagement and enrichment electives are designed to engage participants in inquiry-based projects that develop extraordinary creativity, critical thinking, communication, collaboration and reflective thinking skills. At SSC Leichhardt we call these skills the 4Cs + R.
