This junior curriculum subject choice information has been developed to assist students and parents to make the most appropriate subject selections in Year 10. All Year 9 and 10 students at Roncalli College study a compulsory set of core subjects. These are listed in the Junior Handbook for your reference.

In Year 9 students have a taster of the available options. This allows them to make more informed choices as they progress through the College.


Students in Year 10 have the opportunity to choose up to four optional subjects in a 2 semester structure. Note that some of the core subjects in Year 9 become options in Year 10.


The basic guidelines to take into account when choosing subjects is the importance of maintaining a general, well-balanced mix of subjects that will ensure flexibility of future choices well into the future, that the students enjoy. Students should take every opportunity to talk with parents and their teachers about option choices. If you would like further information or if you have any questions, please feel free to talk to the subject curriculum leader or Mrs Rooney s.rooney@roncalli.school.nz.

Teach a child to choose the right path, and when he is older he will remain upon it.
