Programs have been revised so that Moruya High School has now implemented the new stage 4-5 Board of Studies syllabuses that include the agreed Australian Curriculum content.

Junior students (7, 8 and 9) will complete two topics per term (approximately 5 weeks for each topic). An outline of this topic will be handed to each student at the beginning of each topic and this states the skills and knowledge that should be acquired during this topic.
