Did you know that students can commence an Australian School Based Apprenticeship (ASBA) once they turn 15? 

Students do not have to wait until they are in senior school to commence an ASBA at JPC. If your young person is considering an ASBA in year 9- 12, we recommend you attend the ASBA talk and speak to some of the organisations listed below about how to get started with the process. 

Faculty information (For Year 9 and 10 Students) 

There is an opportunity to see the courses JPC is offering for Senior years (Year 11 and 12) and teachers will be available to discuss the subjects offered for 2024. There will also be a presentation in the theatre throughout the night outlining how to choose subjects in Year 11 and 12 and some introductory information about the Senior Secondary System. For Year 9 students this may help support decisions about electives choices for Year 10.  

Enrolment and Scholarship information for Year 10 students for their Senior Years in 2024 will also be available on the night.
