Course Selection


All strands are compulsory in Years 7 - 10.  Within the strands, a choice may be made of languages other than English.

A detailed senior course booklet is provided at mid-year to help students in Years 10, 11 and 12 choose their subjects for the following year.

To help in these choices, an Options/Careers evening is held for students and parents.  Heads of Departments, subject teachers, the Careers teacher and the Guidance Counsellor (who is responsible for distance learning students) are all available for advice and consultation.

However, the choice today is almost limitless, due to our school's commitment to using new technologies, such as video conferencing, where students from Tokomairiro work with students from other high schools and can have
face-to-face discussions with them and the teacher.  They are also able to email this teacher between sessions, and have personal tutorials organised.
