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 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.
All ākonga in years 9-10 are entered into compulsory Literacy, Numeracy, Science, PE, Health and Languages classes.
These are compulsory to ensure that all ākonga are equipped with the basic skills as required by the NZC.
These are the option classes that change twice in the course of the year. Ākonga have three options that they choose.
The aim for these classes is that ākonga are working on a project by the end of the course that uses the skills that they have learned over the semester. The options range from Art, Social Studies, Technology, Hospitality, Music, Dance & Drama.
