Level 3 English
Teacher in Charge: Miss T. Palmer
The NCEA Level 3 English course challenges students with high levels of critical thinking, reading, viewing and writing. This is a full year as a University Entrance approved subject. The course will explore a variety of literature and language through different genres and text choices. Students will build strong writing skills through a writing portfolio - this will be assessed in Term 3. Most students will be expected to sit the external examination. Subject endorsement is possible. Scholarship English is an opportunity some candidates may wish to pursue.
