Option Selection Information

Choosing the FOUR options in Year 9

Each of the four options is for five hours a fortnight for one semester (two terms).  Two options are completed in Semester 1 (Terms 1 and 2), and the other two are completed in Semester 2 (Terms 3 and 4).

In choosing the options students and parents are reminded that Year 9 is a time for choice and opportunity. Much of the overall learning programme is covered in the six compulsory core subjects.

We are keen to encourage our Year 9 students to continue to have as much breadth as possible in their learning,   Students are encouraged to choose some option subjects that may support their leisure interests.  However, please be aware that some Year 9 option subjects may be prerequisites for further study in Year 10 or for NCEA.
