1 | P a g e Introduction Tēnā koutou katoa/ Greetings to you all. The purpose of school-home involvement is to connect in-school and out-of-school learning in ways that will support valued outcomes for students. If effective connections are to be developed, teachers need to value the educational cultures of their students’ families and communities, and parents need to learn about and value the educational culture of the school. The principle of ako- reciprocal learning and teaching- is therefore fundamental to developing connections that work (Alton-Lee, Robinson, Hohepa & Lloyd, 2009, p.169) The above statement highlights the importance of school and parents/caregivers working together to support students in making effective transitions at important times in their education pathway.

If you are reading this document, it is highly likely that you have a child who is in their final years of secondary school. As such, it is important to talk with them and help them plan for their future, to gain knowledge and understanding that will prepare them well for life beyond Chanel College and leading into adulthood.

This Course Booklet provides information about what programmes of study are on offer at Chanel College in 2019. We strongly encourage all current Year 10 to Year 12 students to be proactive in making an informed decision about what they wish to study next year. We also request that parents/caregivers take time to discuss these options with your child. Your support and encouragement will be pivotal in assisting your son/daughter to make subject selections and realise their potential. At the top of each page that outlines a course on offer, we have identified the Course Contact person. Please do not hesitate to contact that person or those people, should you have any query regarding the course(s) and requirements.

Additionally, at 6pm on Thursday, 20 September we will host a Course Selection Evening in the school hall for students and parents. You are all warmly invited to come along to find out more information.

Further information is provided that gives a brief overview of NCEA. This section is aimed mainly at senior students who are beginning to move towards the specific areas of study linked to career pathways. Students who are in Years 11 - 13 next year are asked in conjunction with their parents/ caregivers to select their option choices and record these on the school’s KAMAR Portal in their order of preference by Tuesday 25 September 2018. To do this please log into : https://students.chanelcollege.school.nz/student/index.php We hope you find this booklet informative and we look forward to meeting with you to discuss, plan and action your son/daughter’s future education pathway.

6 | P a g e The Senior Curriculum This booklet has been prepared to assist you in planning your future courses at Chanel College over the next one, two or three years. Chanel College encourages all students to realise their potential and to strive to attain academic success, so it is important to understand that to advance in many subject areas there are Entry PRE-REQUISITES. While we try to remove barriers to educational advancement, you must attain certain Achievement Standards or Unit Standards in your subjects in order to continue to the next level.

The school has a clear expectation that all students in Years 11 to 13 will do internal and external assessments for NCEA, in each curriculum area that they are studying for.

If a teacher believes there is a valid reason why a student should not do an external assessment/exam, that teacher must make a case to the Senor Leadership Team for consideration. Thereafter, the student and family will be consulted on the matter also. Secondary Tertiary Alignment Resource (STAR) funding allows the College to offer courses in partnership with other accredited education providers. Chanel College has established very good working relationships with a number of off-site providers including, Taratahi Agricultural Training Centre, UCOL, WELTEC, Whitireia, Southern Institute of Technology, NZ College of Tourism among others.

A number of students will also be encouraged to become involved in the Gateway programme. One or two day Trades Academies like PITA, U Skills and Wellington Trades Academy are also available, to a select number of students The College makes every effort to offer the widest possible range of subject choice and combinations, however subjects chosen by an insufficient number of students may not go ahead. Where this situation occurs possible solutions might include students: * take the subject in a combined or multi-level class * receive subject tuition from a specialist teacher and have peer interactions with students from another school(s) through the use of a video conferencing facility * enrol with the Correspondence School and have supervised study * use STAR funding to take the course in conjunction with an off-site provider The Senior Leadership Team will make the final decision as to which courses will be offered.

9 | P a g e Endorsement Certificates can be 'endorsed' to reflect high achievement in a significant number of standards in an individual course. NCEA Certificate Endorsement If a student gains 50 credits at Excellence, their NCEA certificate will be endorsed with Excellence. Likewise, if a student gains 50 credits at Merit (or Merit and Excellence), their NCEA certificate will be endorsed with Merit. The students Record of Achievement will show the endorsement awards achieved.

Credits earned can count towards an endorsement over more than one year and more than one NCEA level. However, they must be gained at the level of the certificate or above. For example, Level 2 credits will count towards endorsement of a Level 1 NCEA, but Level 1 credits will not count towards endorsement of a Level 2 NCEA.

Course Endorsement Students will gain an endorsement for a course if, in a single school year, they achieve:  14 or more credits at Merit or Excellence at the level that supports the endorsement  at least 3 of these credits are from externally assessed standards and 3 credits are from internally assessed standards. Note: this does not apply to Physical Education, Religious Studies and Level 3 Visual Arts. MyBluePrint - NCEA Tracking App It is very important that students in Year 11 - 13 continually track the number of credits that they have achieved to ensure that they reach their goal by the end of the year This simple app enables students to:  List what Subjects they take and what Standards they will study throughout the year.

 Set target results to encourage them to aim for Merit and Excellence results rather than Achieved.
