Year 10 Course Booklet 2022

Welcome to the Christ’s College Diploma

This is your first year of a two-year programme of learning. The Diploma is designed to provide you with a range of learning experiences, both inside and outside the classroom. You will be allocated to a range of classes for some subjects and have a choice of classes with other subjects. By the end of Year 11, you will have experienced all the subjects on offer at Christ’s College, as well as selected courses to prepare you for NCEA. All courses in Years 10–11 are taught in semesters, allowing you to select a larger number of courses overall. Even though the overall subject may be the same, by changing courses halfway through the year you can be exposed to a range of topics that interest you.

There are two types of courses designed to meet your learning needs.

Core courses These give you core knowledge in each subject. Every subject area requires you to take two to three core courses over Years 10–11.

Prep courses

These give you deeper, expert knowledge in a subject. They prepare you directly for NCEA Level 2, but you may also choose a prep course for deeper knowledge. Most prep courses take place in the final semester of Year 11.

Ngaˉ Miha Maˉ tauranga

The Christ’s College Diploma is designed to acknowledge achievement inside and outside the classroom. We believe that learning takes place in several ways and boys should be recognised for all their strengths. Ngaˉ Miha Maˉ tauranga is the means by which this achievement is tracked.

/

The seven elements of Ngaˉ Miha:

Academic Engagement Showing a commitment to learning through active participation in class, completion of expected work, and contributing to creating a positive learning environment. Character and Leadership A demonstration of Christian principles in what you say and do and utilising your character strengths for the good of yourself or others; helping to lead others to be at their best.

/

This means ‘the fronds of education’ or more figuratively, ‘unfolding knowledge’. The ‘miha’ is the tender young frond of the bracken fern which grows lushly in the forest and on the hills of the countryside.

This design symbolises the lush growth of the young as they spread out and become fully grown. The academic frond is the largest and all other fronds are off shoots of that.

The Christ’s College Hauora Cross is also symbolically at the centre.

28 Year 10 Course Booklet 2022

Community and Service Active service to others – actions that show you are putting others (the community) above yourself. Discovery and Challenge Putting yourself outside of your comfort zone in order to develop new skills and confidence. Global Citizenship Learning about cultures and values beyond your own in order to understand our place as part of a global community.

Sustainable Futures Making efforts to create a sustainable world for the next generation – a world that is environmentally, culturally, socially, and economically sustainable. Taha Maˉ ori Showing a commitment to our bicultural nation by demonstrating an understanding of the Te Ao Mori (The Ma ˉ ori world).

Each element of Nga ˉ Miha, and the Diploma as a whole, can be awarded at Black and White (compulsory experiences), Silver (showing initiative of personal development) or Gold (making an impact on your community).

Throughout Year 11, you will be able to submit evidence of your achievements in the non- academic elements and track this through a personalised visual of Nga ˉ Miha.

29

Your Christ’s College Diploma

At the end of your two-year Diploma journey, you will graduate into NCEA study. Your Diploma will be awarded on your overall achievement of Black and White, Silver, Gold, or Gold with Academic Honours. You will also be provided with a transcript of your academic and non-academic achievements that have contributed to your award.
