How to select electives
Juniors will have 8 blocks of electives over 2 years and will do 4 blocks per year in semesters.
When choosing which elective to do, students need to consider which Hub they are in, then select electives that are not already covered by the learning within their Hub.
All students must do the following electives at least once over the 8 blocks, if not already covered by their learning within their Hubs.
- Performing Arts
- Te Reo Māori me ōna Tikanga (unless in Te Whai Hub)
- A Technology elective
- A Visual Art elective
You can take an elective more than once.
