  • Small class sizes
  • Supportive and experienced teachers
  • The advantages that come with one lesson per week:
    - Increased study time during the day
    - Flexibility to undertake part time employment
Students can study one, two or three Stage 2 twilight classes at Thebarton Senior College as part of a full-time enrolment, or combine with subjects at another school.

Day and times for twilight classes available at Thebarton Senior College:


Students examine the parts that make up the power, electrical, braking and steering systems of cars, gaining skills and knowledge in maintenance and repair. They service vehicles, disassemble and reassemble small engines, and conduct fault finding and repair in automotive electrical circuits.

Students develop their knowledge of scientific principles and concepts, the ability to use that knowledge to identify questions, issues, opportunities, and challenges, and the capacity to acquire new knowledge through their own investigations. There are opportunities to learn from professionals working in the Health Science field.

Students develop a research question based on an area of interest. learning about their topic through primary and secondary research processes. They produce a folio, showing evidence of capability development and planning. Students create an outcome, then reflect on and evaluate the effectiveness of their decisions and processes.

TUESDAY 4.00-7.00 PM

Students learn about the history, literature, society, and culture of ancient civilisations, which may include those of Asia-Australia, the Americas, Europe, and Western Asia/North Africa, and the classical civilisations of Greece and Rome. Students also explore the ideas and innovations that shape and are shaped by societies.

Students explore acting techniques and apply skills gained in a project of their choice. Drama also provides the flexibility to explore other areas such as production, direction or script design.

Students explore ways in which Earth materials and processes generate environments, including habitats, where organisms live; the natural processes and human influences that induce changes in physical environments; and ways in which organisms respond to those changes.

Students develop their skills and knowledge around the design of a Game Design Concept. This includes finding an audience, considering and researching the assets required and looking at theories such as what makes a good Game Loop. The final Game Design created is presented as a 'paper prototype' or similar solution as an entrepreneurial product. This course is part of the Game Design Package and should be studied in conjunction with Game Development.

Students explore up-to-date scientific information on the role of nutrients in the body as well as on social and environmental issues related to nutrition. The study of nutrition assists students to reinforce or modify their own diets and lifestyle habits to maximise their health outcomes.

Students develop their knowledge of the principles and concepts of physics to formulate questions and hypotheses, and identify opportunities and challenges. They examine the physical world, including motion and relativity, electricity and magnetism, and light and atoms.

Students look at the world from the perspectives of women and examine the construction of gender and how being a woman or a man may influence an individual's experiences and expectations. They explore the diversity of women's experiences and their relationships to others. They also study gender representation in cultural texts.

WEDNESDAY 4.00-7.00 PM

Students investigate biological systems and their interactions, from the perspectives of energy, control, structure and function, change, and exchange in microscopic cellular structures and processes, through to macroscopic ecosystem dynamics. They apply their understanding of the interconnectedness of biological systems to evaluate the impact of human activity on the natural world.

Students read a range of extended texts and a number of shorter texts from past, contemporary, and everyday contexts. They focus on the skills and strategies of critical thinking needed to interpret texts.

Students learn about the impact of the food and hospitality industry on Australian society and examine the contemporary and changing nature of the industry. They develop relevant knowledge and skills as consumers and/or as industry workers.

Students study and create projects focusing on computational thinking, design, programming and data analytics. Students build skills and knowledge in coding, ethical practice, planning, testing and project management, through developing an interactive Game prototype in Unity or other industry standard tools. This subject is part of the Game Design Package and should be studied in conjunction with the Game Design subject.

Students develop skills in mathematical modelling and apply it to problem-solving in everyday situations. Students explore modelling with linear relationships and matrices and study topics on statistical models, financial models and discrete models.

Students learn about the Australian legal system from the local level to its global connections, its origins and functions. Students learn how laws are made and enforced and the legal issues affecting Australian citizens.

Students learn and apply skills in digital photography, design and photo editing software.

Students develop their skills in using rigorous mathematical arguments and proofs, and using mathematical models. It includes the study of functions, vectors. complex numbers and calculus. The subject provides pathways into mathematical science, engineering, computer science, physical sciences, surveying, economics and commerce.

THURSDAY 4.00-7.00 PM

Students develop an understanding of the physical world that enables them to be questioning, reflective, and critical thinkers. Students can use chemistry to explore and explain their experiences of phenomena around them. Chemistry is organised so that each intended learning outcome is related to a key idea or concept. Within the study of the chemical ideas and concepts, students develop their chemistry investigation skills through practical investigations and critical analysis of chemistry issues.

Students learn about children's growth and development from conception to 8 years and critically examine attitudes and values about parenting and care-giving and gain an understanding of the growth and development of children.

Students develop their skills in calculus and statistics, exploring functions and graphs, logarithms, differentiation and integration. It includes the study of discrete and continuous random variables, the Bernoulli and binomial distributions, and confidence intervals for population mean and proportion.

Students explore the dynamic role of media in Australian and global contexts and develop an understanding of the ways in which media provide views of world events, interpretations of the world, and entertainment. Students consider how media can exert a significant influence on the ways in which people receive and interpret information about the world.

Students gain the skills to understand their own behaviours and the behaviours of others. Psychological knowledge can be applied to improve outcomes and the quality of experience in various areas of life, such as education. intimate relationships, child rearing, employment and leisure.

Students develop a research question based on an area of interest, learning about their topic through primary and secondary research processes. They produce a folio, showing evidence of capability development and planning. Students create an outcome, then reflect on and evaluate the effectiveness of their decisions and processes.

Students gain practical skills and knowledge in the craft of film making. They learn how to shoot, capture, edit and distribute video using consumer and industry standard equipment and software.
