The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) is responsible for the curriculum, Kindergarten to Year 12, for all NSW schools.

For the high school years, NESA develops syllabuses for all subjects in 8 key learning areas:

  • creative arts
  • English
  • human society and its environment (HSIE)
  • languages
  • mathematics
  • personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE)
  • science
  • technological and applied studies (TAS).

NSW schools also offer special religious education and special education in ethics via approved providers, where available.

Like all NSW schools, we have developed teaching and learning programs to suit our local context and the needs of our students.

MHS Subject Selection Handbooks

MHS Subject Selection Handbooks are designed to help students be more informed about subjects in order for them to make their choices as they head into either Year 11 or Year 9.

After student have made their selections, each student will be interviewed and advised in Term 3 about their choices. These decisions are very important and may affect their future success at school and beyond.
