The Senior Years at Kadina Memorial School comprise Years 10 to 12. We believe Senior Years students learn best when they have effective working relationships with their teachers and peers, are challenged to achieve, are engaged in authentic learning with an articulated pathway and can make adult-world connections through their learning.
This has been further reinforced by the way students have embraced the extensive range of subjects and extra-curricular activities on offer. It is a place of Opportunity, Respect and Excellence where they learn life-long skills to become future community leaders.
Senior Years students are taught by specialist teachers across the curriculum.
The Senior Years curriculum is determined by two frameworks; the SACE (Years 11 and 12) and the Australian Curriculum Year 10.
Students who are entitled to targeted support receive that in class.
In Term 3, Senior School teachers, students and their families work together through course counselling to ensure the best academic and vocational pathway is chosen for individual students.
To view course selections please download the Senior School Subject Information booklet. This provides detailed information on South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) requirements, our curriculum offerings
We are proud of our past Year 12 results, with 17 percent of the 2015 cohort achieving an A and 46 percent a B.
Our Year 12 Booklet is a comprehensive guide for end of year matters.
