The hours of secondary school for students in Years 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 in secondary school should be from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm with 15 minutes for recess at 10:00 am and 45 minutes for lunch from 12:15 pm to 1:00 pm, totalling 25 hours of secondary school per school week.

The first lesson of each secondary school day should be from 9:00 am to 9:55 am.

Recess should be from 10:00 am to 10:15 am.

The second lesson of each secondary school day should be from 10:20 am to 11:15 am.

The third lesson of each secondary school day should be from 11:20 am to 12:15 pm.

Lunch should be from 12:15 pm to 1:00 pm.

The fourth lesson of each secondary school day should be from 1:05 pm to 2:00 pm.

The fifth lesson of each secondary school day should be from 2:05 pm to 3:00 pm.

In Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 in secondary school, all students should be required to study English, Mathematics, Science, Geography and History, together with their choice of only one elective subject, such as Commerce, German, French, Industrial Arts, Music and Visual Arts.

The weekly curriculum in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 in secondary school, totalling 25 hours per secondary school week, should be as follows:

> English – 3 x 55 minute lessons

> Mathematics – 3 x 55 minute lessons

> Science – 3 x 55 minute lessons

> History – 3 x 55 minute lessons

> Geography – 3 x 55 minute lessons

> Elective subject – 3 x 55 minute lessons

> Religious education – 2 x 55 minute lessons

> Physical education – 2 x 55 minute lessons

> Industrial arts for males / Home economics for females – 1 x 55 minute lesson

> Life Skills (including half of the time devoted to civics (i.e. the study of the Australian government and the rights and responsibilities of Australian citizenship) and half of the time devoted to computer skills (including touch-typing), money management, saving money, selecting and buying an appropriate, useful, rear-wheel-drive motor vehicle, selecting and buying appropriate, useful equipment, such as a ride-on lawn mower, to perform work productively on one’s behalf as a means of earning income, theory of automotive maintenance and repairs, buying land, building a house, collecting rainwater and growing food) – 1 x 55 minute lesson

> Machinations of the Rothschilds-led synagogue of Satan – 1 x 55 minute lesson

There should be no sport in secondary school, because secondary school is compulsory for white citizens of white countries around the world of secondary school age, so that including sport in secondary school increases the amount of time that white citizens of white countries around the world of secondary school age are obligated to spend attending secondary school, which should be limited.

Secondary school students should be free to learn musical instruments, but rehearsals for musical groups, such as bands, orchestras and choirs, should only be held between 8:00 am and 8:55 am on school days, in order to leave lunchtimes on school days free for all secondary school students to spend socialising with each other and building friendships and associations with each other as an important part of secondary school and in order to leave the time in the afternoons on school days after secondary school has finished free for secondary school students to spend as they choose, with the exception of being obligated to do homework.

It is critically important to strictly limit the amount of homework assigned to students in each year of school so that students are not overburdened by too much homework.

Homework is indispensable for the cognitive and intellectual development of school students. The reality is that students who do not complete their homework do not develop cognitively and intellectually to anywhere near their full potential. The purpose of homework is for students to learn by reading their assigned textbooks as directed by their teachers, to practice and improve the skills they have been learning in class by completing exercises as directed by their teachers and to study for upcoming tests and exams.

School students have the admirable responsibility of not only completing schoolwork at school but also taking schoolwork home with them and completing it at home as homework. This responsibility should be respected by their teachers and not exploited. The lives of school students outside of school hours and their time outside of school hours should also be respected by strictly limiting the amount of homework that is assigned to students.

The amount of homework and study at home required of students in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 in secondary school should not exceed the equivalent of 60 minutes of homework and study at home per school day, totalling a maximum of 5 hours of homework and study at home per school week. This is the equivalent of a maximum of 50 minutes of homework and study at home per school week for each of the six subjects that students in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 study. Study at home for upcoming tests and exams should be required of students in Years 7, 8, 9, 10.

The purpose of limiting the amount of homework and study at home required of students in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 in secondary school is to limit the intensity of the workload on students so that they have enough free time outside of school, homework and study at home to spend how they choose, such as by working to earn money and socialising with their friends.

Limiting the burden of homework and study at home on students in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 in secondary school will free up their afternoons after school to earn money doing jobs such as mowing lawns and washing cars, as well as to spend time with their friends socialising. This will give secondary school students an important opportunity to earn money and save for their futures. The really smart students will invest their savings while they’re in secondary school in order to make their savings grow. This will enable them to make a much-needed start towards accumulating the money required to later buy some land on which to build a dwelling in which to live so that the amount of rent they will have to pay when they get older and move out of home is reduced.

In Years 11 and 12 in secondary school, all students should study a total of six subjects, being English compulsorily, Mathematics compulsorily and four elective subjects chosen out of:

> science subjects (i.e. Biology, Chemistry, Geology, Physics, et cetera)

> Geography

> History

> their elective subject from Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 or a continuing subject, such as Economics for the elective subject from Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 of Commerce

There should only be one version of each subject offered for study, such as 2 Unit Mathematics, not multiple versions of each subject offered for study, such as 2 Unit Mathematics, 3 Unit Mathematics and 4 Unit Mathematics with increasing levels of difficulty. The purpose of restricting each subject to one version is to limit the intensity of the workload on students so that they have enough free time outside of school, homework and study at home to spend how they choose, such as by working to earn money and socialising with their friends.

Australian state and territorial governments have implemented very bloated secondary school curricula in the states and territories of Australia, which include an excessive amount of calculus in mathematics in Year 11 and Year 12 in 3 Unit Mathematics and 4 Unit Mathematics (given that fewer that 20% of secondary school students will ever use calculus in their subsequent adult lives, outside of any subsequent attendance at university and use of calculus at university), together with a substantial number of pointless or harmful books which secondary school students are required to torturously read for their study of English, instead of instruction that concentrates on developing their actual ability to speak, read and write English well, together with their associated ability to think critically and communicate clearly.

The weekly curriculum in Years 11 and 12 in secondary school, totalling 25 hours per secondary school week, should be as follows:

> English – 3 x 55 minute lessons

> Mathematics – 3 x 55 minute lessons

> Elective subject 1 – 3 x 55 minute lessons

> Elective subject 2 – 3 x 55 minute lessons

> Elective subject 3 – 3 x 55 minute lessons

> Elective subject 4 – 3 x 55 minute lessons

> Free study time – 5 x 55 minute lessons

> Religious education – 1 x 55 minute lesson

> Physical education – 1 x 55 minute lesson

Given that students in Years 11 and 12 in secondary school have five 55 minute lessons of free study time each secondary school week under this proposed secondary school curriculum, the amount of homework, study at home and study at school required of students in Years 11 and 12 in secondary school should not exceed the equivalent of 120 minutes of homework, study at home and study at school per school day, totalling a maximum of 10 hours of homework, study at home and study at school per school week. This is the equivalent of a maximum of 100 minutes of homework, study at home and study at school per school week for each of the six subjects that students in Years 11 and 12 study. Study at home and study at school for upcoming tests and exams should be required of students in Years 11 and 12.

The purpose of limiting the amount of homework, study at home and study at school required of students in Years 11 and 12 in secondary school is to limit the intensity of the workload on students so that they have enough free time outside of school, homework, study at home and study at school to spend how they choose, such as by working to earn money and socialising with their friends.

Limiting the burden of homework, study at home and study at school on students in Years 11 and 12 in secondary school will free up their afternoons after school to earn money doing jobs such as mowing lawns and washing cars, as well as to spend time with their friends socialising. This will give secondary school students an important opportunity to earn money and save for their futures. The really smart students will invest their savings while they’re in secondary school in order to make their savings grow. This will enable them to make a much-needed start towards accumulating the money required to later buy some land on which to build a dwelling in which to live so that the amount of rent they will have to pay when they get older and move out of home is reduced.

Postscript:

I worked very hard in secondary school. I finished Year 12 in secondary school in New South Wales in 1990 at the age of 18 years in the top 0.85% of the state of New South Wales in the Higher School Certificate (HSC) – 446th out of 54,338 candidates. My “1990 NSW HSC Candidate Number” is 703421. I obtained a Tertiary Entrance Rank (TER) of 99.15 in the Higher School Certificate (HSC) in New South Wales in 1990.

I hold a Bachelor of Economics majoring in Accounting & Finance from Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, where I studied after finishing secondary school.

As a result of choosing the elective subjects German, French and Music in Years 8, 9 and 10 of secondary school and therefore not studying Geography and History in Years 8, 9 and 10, I finished secondary school ignorant and uneducated.

It is difficult for any person to reach their full potential in adulthood without a proper education in Geography and History in secondary school.

It was not until I reached the age of about 42 years that I had learned enough about Geography and History to feel as though I had caught up on what I had missed out on learning in Geography and History in Years 8, 9 and 10 in secondary school as a result of my poor choice of elective subjects.

It is for these reasons that I strongly believe that the study of Geography and History should be compulsory for all secondary school students in Years 8, 9 and 10, in addition to Year 7.
