Courses

THE CURRICULUM AT EACH YEAR LEVEL IS OUTLINED IN THIS SECTION

Planning is underway for 2021 already! An important step in this process is the opportunity for students to select their courses for next year.

August is going to be Course Selection Month for Year 9 - 12 students. This process will be completed by using our new online platform: https://lynfield.schoolpoint.co.nz/

Selections will need to be completed by Friday 28 August (Year 10 - 12) and Friday 4 September (Year 9). To access the platform to approve you child’s course selection, you will need to know your parent portal login and password. If you have lost/forgotten your parent portal login and/or password, please contact the main office admin@lynfield.school.nz

It is important for students to think carefully about their selections and make informed decisions. For many students choosing courses can be an anxious time. However, there are many places from which they can seek help.

At school, students can talk with Mrs Wendy Keir, Careers Advisor, their Year Level Dean, subject teachers or form teacher for advice. At home, families and whānau can help by reassuring their child and helping their child to identify their interests, skills and strengths. The transition to starting a career has changed in recent years and may be different from parents' experiences, when they were making the same decision.

Below are some links to the Careers NZ website in support of students and whanau:
