Teaching/Ako & Learning


(Year 11-13)

All ākonga are placed into a Puna Ako group at the beginning of the year. The purpose of this time is to make connections with peers, work on SEL, learn Haeata tikanga, track and monitor NCEA progress and attendance. Puna Ako will be at the start of each day from 8.50am – 9.10am. On Wednesday Puna Ako groups will attend the Y9-13 assembly.

Year 11 are enrolled in a full year of Literacy, Numeracy and Science. They also have three options to choose from.


Year 12 & 13 ākonga are required to pick 6 options. If they require Literacy and or Numeracy, this will be compulsory in their course selections.  They also have a variety of options to choose from including HSPP, Services, Hospitality Programme and other courses offered externally through our Pathways programme.
