2 English Students study a variety of English texts, including novels, short stories and poems. They will learn to think critically about texts and develop their own writing skills. There is a focus on the accuracy of their reading and writing. By studying English, students will be able to achieve literacy which is needed to gain entry into a variety of tertiary courses. English also helps students develop an understanding and appreciation of language and literature. English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) The ESOL program is for students who are learning English as a second language. At all levels, studying ESOL covers the four skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. Areas of study include research projects, analysis of visual and written texts and giving presentations. Learning English as an additional language opens doors for students in the international market. Within New Zealand, studying ESOL facilitates entry to tertiary study at university level or higher. Social Studies Social Studies is about people and society. New Zealand is the main focus while other societies in different places and times, global concerns and current issues are also studied. Social Sciences prepare you for the world in all its aspects. You will get the most out of our wonderful world if you understand its diversity, its development, its issues and its humanity.
3 Mathematics You will focus on subject areas including Number and Algebra, Geometry and Measurement and Statistics. In Year 11 you will study NCEA Level 1 Mathematics. By achieving at least 10 Mathematics credits, a student will fulfil the numeracy requirements for NCEA Levels 1, 2 & 3 and University Entrance. Science Science includes studies of biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy and earth science. It includes practical components which teach the skills of observation, measurement, processing and the analysis of data. Science is a necessary subject for many career paths. After studying Science in Years 9-11 you will be able to specialise in the area(s) of Science you are most interested in Biology, Chemistry or Physics. Health Students will be encouraged to understand and acknowledge the attitudes and values of themselves, others and society. We aim to develop and nurture the mental health of our students, so that they can make positive life choices. We aim to empower students to explore their personal identity and enhance their self-esteem. Participation in Health Education can lead towards a varied range of career options. Health is a social science, and as such people who work in health provide medical services and health care for people and animals that may be injured, disabled or suffering from disease. They also educate people about how to prevent sickness and look after their own physical and emotional wellbeing. Health educated people find jobs in health facilities such as hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, schools, sporting organisations.
4 Music Rangitoto College offers a comprehensive range of Music courses aimed at students who: - are preparing to gain entry to tertiary study in Performing Arts, Musicology or Music Education - have interest and/or experience in some aspects of Music and looking for self-improvement and the artistic involvement in Performing Arts across different curricula. All courses involve students in the active, creative and academic processes of Practical Music, Music Studies and Listening. Along with improving a student s own personal mastery of an instrument, there are numerous career choices for students who have taken Music. Occupations range from being a composer/arranger, conductor, music therapist, lecturer, piano tuner, instrument maker, professional performer, entertainer, music teacher etc. Some students may choose to be involved in local theatre and music groups, which opens up a whole world of performing and social experiences too. Physical Education At Junior level, students experience a variety of physical activities and a variety of facilities. At Senior level, Physical Education provides an insight into the disciplines of: Sport Psychology, the Acquisition of Skill, Sports Sociology, Biomechanics, Training Programme Planning, Anatomy and Physiology, Sports Performance, Coaching, Leadership and Outdoor Education including a four day camp. Studying Physical Education would be useful for careers such as: Physiotherapist; Teacher; Coach; Fitness Instructor; Sports Official; Therapist; Sports Analyst; Sports Management; Health Sciences; Professional Sportsman/Woman.
5 Languages French, Japanese, Maori, Spanish or Mandarin Our language courses enable students to communicate both orally and in writing about important aspects of modern life - family, friends, health, homeland, future plans, fashion, holiday, environmental issues etc. The cross-cultural skills and communicative ability coming from language learning are an advantage for students who go on to study or work overseas. Language learning allows them to learn how to be outside their cultural "comfort zone" and to develop positive attitudes to difference. Materials Technology Materials Technology is where students combine knowledge, skills and resources to create practical outcomes using a range of materials that include wood, metal and plastic. Materials Technology continues to Year 13 as an Achievement Standard course and/or industry based Unit Standards courses in Construction and Engineering. It will help students into University and associated careers, as well as industry based courses. Graphics/Design & Visual Communication (DVC) In Design & Visual Communication, students solve problems related to the main areas of study: architectural, environmental, engineering, technical and media design. Drawing is a key element of the course, and through this, students can respond imaginatively and appropriately to a range of set briefs. Those wishing to apply for further study at tertiary level will be able to prepare a portfolio supporting their application for courses such as advertising, architecture, graphics, interior design, digital design (computer based graphics) and many other relevant design fields.
6 Fashion & Design (Textiles Technology) At Junior level, students are encouraged to use imagination and creativity in producing and developing original designs. Practical skills covered include pattern adaptation, fashion drawing, creative design, sewing techniques, tie dye, screen printing and other forms of decoration. At Senior level, the course involves the development of higher skills and knowledge bases. Students will produce in-depth portfolios demonstrating concept generation, modelling and developing a prototype. In Year 13 students will produce in-depth portfolios which they can use to support their application to a tertiary course. Students interested in careers in fashion or costume design would benefit from this course. Food & Nutrition Students will develop a food product by following the technological process. Students will produce an in-depth portfolio to demonstrate planning, brief development, knowledge and skills gained. At a senior level, students will choose an individual client to work with. They will develop a brief and outcome for their chosen client. This course, alongside Level 3 Science, will prepare students for Food Technology degree courses. It would also be useful for students planning careers in the hospitality and catering industries. Electronics At Junior level, the program introduces students to the terms, components and symbols of electronics and students will be given a basic understanding of circuits, circuit drawing, circuit testing, circuit simulation and circuit construction. At Senior level, students build upon previous knowledge, with students generating a portfolio of design work and producing at least two electronic circuits. The intention is to provide students with an industry recognised qualification, namely, the Certificate of Electro Technology, Level 2. This qualification is recognised by the industry and will act as a reference for students seeking employment in the electronics field. The course touches on topics covered in an electronics degree.
7 Drama Year 9 Drama starts by introducing junior students to the primary skills of drama and performance. As students progress through the years, the courses will develop to include working with scripts, study and performance of a specific dramatic form/genre and solo work and group work in live performances. Drama would be useful to anyone considering a career in the performing arts. It would also be useful in a broader sense as the self-confidence and communication skills developed in this course will carry over into other subjects, allowing students to perform more strongly in oral and presentation style tasks such as: seminars; reports; presentations; speeches; debates. Dance At Junior level, the Dance courses cover the following: A range of different dance genres including Contemporary, Jazz, Hiphop, Social Dance and Musical Theatre; Dance vocabulary and exploration of the Dance Elements; Choreography and performing in small group dances. At Senior level, Students choreograph both solo and group work, perform in various dance works, analyse and evaluate dance performances and theoretically demonstrate knowledge of a particular dance genre. NCEA Dance is a University approved subject that will allow senior students entry into university courses. Students can study towards gaining a career as a Dance Teacher (school/studio), Performer (Stage/Screen), Choreographer, Arts administrator, Dance Therapist, Movement specialist (human resources), Production Manager, etc.
8 Economics Economics is all about scarce resources and how society chooses to use them in the production of goods and services. In Year 9 and 10, students are introduced to basic economic concepts of scarcity, demand enterprise and basic accounting. In higher levels, Year 11 onwards, students learn about prices, markets, inflation, international trade, economic growth, business organisations, and Governments influence on our economy. Economics enables students to become economically literate and understand the world better, and will make students more attractive to any commercial organisation or well-placed for further academic study in business, management or commerce. Art & Design In Years 9 & 10 the course covers a wide range of visual skills including freehand drawing, illustration, cartooning, layout design and painting, working with a range of media and techniques, including tonal modelling and rendering form using coloured pencil overlays, pen and ink techniques and mixed media. Students intending to pursue a career in any of the following - Architecture, Design (eg. graphic, spatial, product, industrial, interior, fashion/costume, film and TV stage set, etc), Animation, Photography, Fine Arts - should be aware that an art background through to NCEA Level 3 is considered advantageous in assisting with meeting entry requirements to tertiary degree/courses at university and technical institutes.
