Is the Galileo Class just for Year 7 and 8?  In Year 7 students are in the Galileo class for all subjects. In Year 8 to 10 to cater for individual student differences, students are split into individual Galileo classes for Maths, English and Science. Most students from Year 7 continue in the Galileo stream for all mainstream their remaining years.
