Year 11

Below are the Year 11 Course Descriptions for students.

Students are encouraged to visit the Careers NZ website: . There are a number of useful tools on this website to help students think about the subjects they will need for their chosen pathway, or to consider which pathway they are interested in. For students who are unsure of their pathway as yet, it is important to select a range of options they are interested in and enjoy.
