As referred to in correspondence sent out to all Year 10 students and families earlier this week, all Year 10 students will participate in a Subject Selection Program at OLMC on Wednesday 22 June - Friday 24 June.

Activities will include interacting with their Morrisby Career Profile (undertaken on Thursday 16 June), participation in a tertiary expo, information sessions and industry workshops. Students will be provided with a number of resources to support their understanding of subject selection and connect this with future study and pathway options.

Dates for students and parents to diarise are as follows:

Thursday 16 June
8.45 am - 11.30 am (break during recess)

Morrisby Profile Assessment

Tuesday 21 June
7.00 pm - 8.30 pm

Details regarding subject selection processes and submission dates will be communicated to students and parents in due course.


Year 11 students who are considering making changes to their Year 12 2023 program might find it useful to revisit their Morrisby Profile which they can access via the Morrisby website - https://app.morrisby.com/login

Students who can no longer access Morrisby can use the ‘forgotten login’ tab OR, if this fails, contact me via email for a login code. It is possible for students who feel their interests have changed over the last 12 months to retake the Interests Questionnaire which may lead to shifts in suggested professions or studies.

Students considering dropping subjects in Year 12 might also like to double-check prerequisites by using the VTAC 2024 Prerequisites Guide

Students in Years 10 and 11 may like to consider attending an Open Day to gain an insight into the options and layout of a university or TAFE campus. An experience at an Open Day can bring future goals and ambitions to life as well as provide them with an opportunity to speak with current students and academics about study areas or professional industries they may be considering in the future.

Students in Year 12 are encouraged to attend Open Days at various institutions to help them clarify their options as well as possible pathways whilst comparing the course structures, opportunities and facilities available to them.

Open Day dates have been emailed to all Year 10, 11 and 12 students and parents/guardians are invited to access this information from the OLMC Careers website. Students are encouraged to register their attendance for Open Days to get information about specific events, information sessions, tours etc. which align with the courses and study areas they are considering.
