Futures Centre Program
The Futures Centre is an area of the school designed specifically for Year 9 students, which was redeveloped as part of a $1 million grant from the Leading Schools Fund. The focus of this Centre is to equip students with the skills and knowledge they need for high level functioning in our future local and global communities.
The program is academically challenging with an emphasis on developing our students’ critical thinking and creativity, combined with an eye to the future.
The Year 9 Program at Footscray City College allows all students to choose a range of subjects that suit their individual interests as well as comprehensively covering the key skills and knowledge as defined by the Victorian Curriculum.
Subjects in the Year 9 Program present curriculum drawn from the 8 Learning Areas of the Victorian Curriculum (English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, the Arts, Technology, Health/Physical Education and Languages) as well as incorporating the four Cross Curricula Capabilities of Critical/Creative Thinking, Ethical, Intercultural and Personal/Social education.
