Pc Curriculum Design 1

Junior School

Students in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 cover all areas of the curriculum. Years 7 and 8 are in core classes, where they enjoy an integrated curricular environment supported with option classes taught by specialist teachers. In Years 9 and 10 students are offered more choices. Across the two semesters, students will have both a core class and a module option class for each curriculum area. 

Senior School

Students in Years 11 to 13 are offered a wide selection of subjects as they begin to specialise in their strengths and interests. Each semester students select five subjects. Four of the subjects are taught over three lessons throughout the week, while the fifth subject makes up their Wednesday programme. Students have the opportunity to continue with any or all of their five subjects across the two semesters, or select new subjects at the beginning of B Semester. Students looking to achieve University Entrance, however, will need to ensure they design a programme across the two semesters that will support achieving 14 credits across three U.E. approved subjects.

Senior students also have the opportunity to enrol in courses run by Toi Ohomai which run over one or two days of the week or sign up to taster courses at Wintec to broaden their career opportunities.
