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.
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.
