Learning Support - Special Programmes - Learning - Tokoroa High School
Students are admitted to this class if they do not achieve their junior diploma in Year 10. The numbers of Year 11 students in this class are limited to provide one to one assistance and guidance. One teacher takes three classes, plus is the tutor for these students. A second teacher teaches two other subjects. This programme offers five subjects which are at a set time every day of the week. Gateway courses are offered to this class with outside providers giving intensive learning for blocks of time of one to three days.
This programme is a motivational class to engage a small group Year 10 students. All learning is integrated through a sports topic. Mathematics and literacy are taught through sports statistics, physical education and applied exercise science. The real world relevance of this learning is explicitly taught. These subjects can lead the learners further in medical and physical development fields of employment.
