Students in consultation with their parents and the College decide what Learning Areas they would like to study.  A Curriculum booklet, which explains the College’s philosophy on Teaching and Learning, the New Zealand Curriculum and NCEA and University qualifications structures assists with these decisions.

Curriculum Document

Students enter their option choices directly into the KAMAR Student Web Portal.  Usernames and Passwords will be issued to students in Term 3 with instructions.  This information will be given out in time for students to logon and indicate their option choices.

On a date to be confirmed Heads of Faculty, Deans and Teachers in charge of subjects will be available in the Auditorium to discuss the options available. This provides an opportunity to ask questions or gain further information.

We encourage you, as your daughter’s caregiver, to discuss your daughter’s options with her in order to ensure that she is planning an appropriate programme to meet her learning strengths, interests, passions and her talents. It is vital that the girls look carefully at the learning pathways for each Learning Area so that she can make sound choices to help her achieve her career goals, remembering to explore a range of career possibilities.

At the Year 9-11 stage, your daughter should be keeping her options open – a broad range is the best.

Useful information to help with subject selection for Year 11 to Year 13 include:
 
Subject Recommendations for Tertiary Courses   The Careers Service website

There are a number of other people at the College that your daughter can access for advice and support including Deans, Heads of Faculty, Learning Centre Co-ordinator and Careers Advisor. These people can be easily contacted by e-mail or by phone:
