Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Nair

Our Level One Science students will be assessed in four new standards that are each worth 5 credits. The internally assessed standards will be assessed through a portfolio of student work completed during class, while the externally assessed standards will be assessed digitally in Terms 3 and 4. 

We are really excited to be able to provide a science course that is designed specifically for our students here at Te Puke High school and which gives students a great foundation from which to launch their future learning in Science.
