  • Personal well-being / Hauora  -  this is about making a commitment to making a small change to one's own well-being by setting and achieving goals.   
  • Positive Sexuality  -  learn how to be a confident and know how to express yourself using assertive and effective communication skills

In 2022 we have been super lucky to be included as a trial school for changes to NCEA.  This could mean changes to our course.  The great thing is that we will get great additional support from the experts.  

This is a fabulous chance to learn really cool new stuff.
