07 Jul Subject Selection for 2023
Six Subjects for Year 11 and 12 Students in 2023
In 2023, Pakuranga College has expanded the subject choices for Year 11 and 12 students. If your child is moving into Year 11 or 12 next year, they will now be able to choose six subjects. These choices were previously limited to five. There are no changes to compulsory subjects (English for Year 12, and English, Science, and Mathematics in Year 11), but students will be able to choose an additional subject from The Arts, Technologies, Languages, Social Sciences, or Health and Physical Education. Year 13 students continue to choose five subjects in preparation for University Entrance. These changes are to encourage breadth of learning across multiple disciplines and align with the upcoming changes to NCEA.
Subject Choices – Years 10 – 12
Option assemblies will be running in Week One (current Year 11 and 12 students) and Week Six (current Year 10s) of next term. Following these assemblies your child will bring home a chart of subject choices. On the back page, you will find instructions for them to enter their subject choices for 2023 in SchoolPoint. We encourage you to discuss your child’s options with them and ask them about conversations that will be taking place with their teachers and our Careers Advisors. Current Year 9s will have their option choice assembly in Term 4.
