Students wishing to take subjects that are not available with us can enrol in Correspondence courses through the Correspondence School. Correspondence classes occur during class time in a supervised study class.
Students learn through a combination of workbooks and online modules. They can contact their Te Kura tutor via email or phone if they have a question.
Students work together with the correspondence supervisor at the beginning of the year to select standards and plan a course outline for the year.
