Course choices and booklets

The process for choosing next year’s courses starts in late August/early September each year. Our course choice booklets outline:

  • Course content
  • The learning focus for each course
  • NCEA information
  • Entry recommendations

Senior Course Choices 2022

Students in Years 10—12 are invited to explore the options available.

If you require further information about Maths course choices in Years 11-13 please see this video

Use these planning sheets to help you select one course per line. You can only choose one subject per timetable line.

If you have a clash: circle the preferred subject in the correct line and add the other subject that is clashing in the ‘alternate’ column. Be prepared to drop one.

If you have more than one clash, add written notes explaining the clashes on the sheet and ask your rōpū teacher to pass it/email it to Mrs Lewis. Name your sheet.

The timeline for making course decisions for 2022 is below. There are opportunities to discuss course choices at Future Focus Evening and also at Learning Conversations:

Junior Curriculum Handbook 2022

For students in Years 9 and 10 the Junior curriculum handbook provides useful information regarding the courses and taster courses available and the pathways into NCEA.

Year 9 students do not make option choices at the start of Term 1. They take all eight taster courses during the year and make choices for languages later in the term.
