Wakatipu High School

Course Option Selection for 2024 through SchoolPoint is currently closed for all students. If you have not selected your courses, please take a look at the Course Selection Process below. Students wishing to change course selections please get in touch with your Dean. If you are a new entrant Year 9 student please email [email protected].

Students are encouraged to discuss their Course Options with the following people:

  • Parents/Caregivers
  • Subject Teachers &/or HoLA
  • Kaiārahi &/or Dean 
  • Careers Adviser 
  • Other members of staff eg SLT

In selecting your Course Options and course of study, you need to consider and balance: your interests and passions, your strengths and what you’re good at, your potential future and pathway, and keeping your options open.

Try and ‘begin with the end in mind’ and work backwards, eg if you think you are likely to do a certain Course Option in the senior school then it is a good idea to do more than just the minimum number of Course Options in the junior school. For example, if you are planning on doing Digital Technology in the senior school then you will likely want to choose additional Digital Technology Courses in the junior school.
