Subject Specific Core Programme - Year 10

Course Description

Subject Specific Core

Students select subject specific core on the enrolment form if they are new to Whangarei Girls' High School or on Schoolpoint if they are a current student.  

English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Physical Education and Health are all taught in separate classes. Each learning area covers the learning objectives from the New Zealand Curriculum.  

Students will be with a different group of students for each core subject and option subjects.

In each of the core classes students will be taught to think critically, work collaboratively and develop their creativity, communication and digital literacy. They will work individually, in groups and as a class. Students will learn a wide range of content across these subjects and make links to the community. Students will be encouraged to be active participants in their learning. Teachers provides timely feedback and feedforward to students and their whānau about their learning journey.

We aim to provide student centred learning environments for all classes, where students are taught by specialist teachers who differentiate the learning to meet the needs of individual students.

Google Classroom is used throughout the school, giving students access to their learning during and outside the timetabled class.
