Please see the Senior High Mathematics Course Pathways flowchart for further information.

In order to register for courses, your son/daughter must have access to the Student Portal. If they are unable to access the portal, they need to drop by the school office so that Ms. Barteaux or Mrs. Hannam can provide a username/password.
