Year 10 Option Courses

Important points to consider:

Understand?

Yes?  No ask

 

 

1

FIVE of the subjects at present studied in Year 9 continue in Year 10.  These subjects are:

English / Mathematics / Science / Social Studies / Physical Education & Health

The other subjects studied this year become OPTIONAL in Year 10.  A choice of TWO must be made now.

 

2

Remember when you select your Year 10 courses that ABILITY, INTEREST AND FUTURE USEFULNESS are important reasons for your choices

 

 

3

Although every effort will be made to provide the courses chosen, no guarantee can be given that all will be possible.  Because of the need to have classes of a certain size, some students may be asked to change if a class is too large.  Similarly, if too few choose a course that class will be cancelled.  Should this happen your Whanau Team will talk to you about other possible options.

 

4

To choose Japanese or Samoan in Year 10, these languages must have been studied in Year 9.  It is helpful to choose an option you have taken this year and that you would like to continue with at Year 11

 

5

Choosing a course in Year 10 does NOT bind you to the same course in Year 11

 

6

To help you decide on your options seek guidance from the following people:

                                                    Subject teachers / Whanau Tutor  / Whanau Team  / Careers Adviser

 

7

Students can only choose one of SPT or RUG.  Students should be aware that they limit their future subject choices if they choose options with similar subject content

You will be making your option choices from week 5 onwards and then confirming these choices during your:

                      STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT CONFERENCE on Wednesday 21st September 2016
