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 2024

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

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 the named sheet to Mrs Lewis.

The timeline for making course decisions for 2024 is below. There are opportunities to discuss course choices at Future Focus Evening and also at Learning Conversations.
