There will be a VCE Information evening held at Firbank on Thursday, 15 July. You will hear from the Director of Learning, the VCE Co-ordinator and the Deputy Head of Learning. The evening will be an opportunity to hear about the structure and requirements of the VCE program, the range of subjects on offer at Firbank and the subject selection process.

This event is preceded by a VCE Subject Expo for students to attend in the Recital Hall foyer and CCA foyer (commencing at 4.30 p.m.) which is optional for parents to attend with their daughter. The expo will be a showcase of the subjects on offer and a chance to speak directly with Heads of Department and VCE teachers about the courses available.

In addition, you will find links to information videos for most VCE subjects, outlining what students will learn throughout the units. These will hopefully answer any subject-specific questions. Contact details for the Head of Department will be listed at the end of each presentation, in case you have any additional questions.
