SENIOR COLLEGE OPTIONS PROGRAMME
The Senior Options Programme is a unique aspect of St. Andrew’s College. All students in the Senior College are involved in the Options Programme in addition to their academic studies. The programme provides students with the opportunity to study subjects that will broaden their outlook, as well as giving them insight into and equipping them with skills for advancement in their studies, career and general life skills. To gain their Senior College Diploma in 2016, two-year students will need to complete five options and one-year students will need to complete three options. To gain a credit for each component students must actively participate in the course of studies chosen. Year 12 students are to choose at least one Physical Education Unit Option.
Most options require weekly attendance over six Mondays per term, excluding Term 4. In some cases, options run for 3-6 hours, a one-off session.
