In Year 10, students have the opportunity to gain a vocational qualification (Certificate I in Business).

Accounting is an information system that provides financial and other information for making and evaluating decisions about the allocation of resources.  It is a system of recording, reporting, analysing, and interpreting the financial information of an organisation and involves the conveyance of relevant business information to interested users.  The study of accounting enables students to understand these processes.  The course is designed, not only to provide a foundation in the discipline of Accounting, but also to prepare students for further education, training and employment.  The subject offers scope and flexibility through the exploration of financial management decisions and provides relevance for general education.
