In Year 9, students may choose to continue their selected language as an elective, or select an array of alternative subjects outlined in the elective charts.

VCE Italian students at Model United Nations Conference
Loreto Toorak VCE Italian students took part in a Model United Nations (MUN) Conference, which was conducted entirely in Italian. As Assembly delegates and country ambassadors, our students delivered their prepared delegate presentations, engaged in dialogue and negotiated multilateral diplomacy with other student delegates.

Languages not offered in the Senior School at Loreto Toorak can be studied via distance education at the Victorian School of Languages (VSL) and contribute towards the subject loads of our students, including VCE. Students either study online with a phone tutorial every fortnight with a tutor from VSL, or alternatively, students attend Saturday morning classes at University High School, Parkville. Costs can be found on the VSL website.
