Course Subject Selection Booklets for 2018


Over the school break, current Y10, Y11 and Y12 students are encouraged to read through the corresponding subject selection booklets with their caregivers, as their subject choices for 2018 will need to be made in Week 1 of Term 4.

In the next several weeks, we will be developing the timetable for 2018 from the finalised subject choices by senior students.

For Year 12, each student takes 6 NCEA subjects (each offering 18-24 credits) which contribute towards the credits that are needed to achieve NCEA Level 2. Of these 6 subjects, 2 of them are core subjects at LAC for Year 12 (Bible and English). The other four subjects are chosen by the students from a range of options.

For Year 13, each student takes 6 NCEA subjects (each offering 18-24 credits) which contribute towards the credits that are needed to achieve NCEA Level 3. Of these 6 subjects, 1 of them is a core subject at LAC for Year 13 (Bible). The other five subjects are chosen by the students from a range of options.

Pasifika Fusion 2017


“2017 Pasfika Fusion was another huge success! Every year I am blown away by student participation in the annual event held at The Regent on Broadway. There were 15 Secondary schools around the Manawatu region who participated in over 11 different categories. The theme this year was Communities of Learning exploring school pride and empowerment, with the motto ‘It takes a village to raise a child

Huge congratulations to the students who placed in the following:

  • 1st Place – Senior Poetry – Jotham Tesese
  • 1st Place – Cinematography – Yukiko Nakao-Afeaki (video below)
  • 2nd equal Place – Cinematography – Jotham Tesese (video below)
  • 3rd Place – Wearable Arts – Sisi Panikoula & Evaysha Hala

There are so many people to thank for their contribution to costumes, rehearsals, student supervision, cinematography and wearable arts. However a big thank you to Torika Warren-Peu and her team for the amazing effort and tireless nights in preparing for PI Fusion.

Thank you to everyone who continues to be a part of our village, supporting our Pasifika students to be proud and confident individuals.”

NZQA Fees Notice


2017 NZQA Fees Due

NZQA fees need to be paid for all Year 11, 12 and 13 students for 2017.  These fees must be paid to the school by September 1.  Paying the fee enables NCEA results to be recorded on a Record of Achievement.  It also means that students can receive or obtain any certificates.  

If fees are not paid to the school on time, then there is the opportunity for Parents/Caregivers to pay the fee directly to NZQA by the 1st of December.  This involves obtaining a special form that needs to be filled in by the Parent/Caregiver and student, attaching the required payment (by cheque) and posting it to NZQA.  Alternatively, the fee can be paid online through the student’s NZQA log-in, and you will require a credit card to do this.

If NZQA fees are not paid by the 1st of December, then an additional late fee of $50.00 is added to the due amount.

NZQA Fees – full fees (without Financial Assistance)

NCEA entry$76.70
Each NZ Scholarship subject$30.00 per subject

 

Fees for International Fee Paying Students (no financial assistance available)

NCEA entry$383.30
Each NZ Scholarship subject$102.20 per subject

 


Financial Assistance to help pay NCEA Fees

If you are a Domestic Student, you can apply for Financial Assistance if your family cannot afford to pay your fees.  To get this help parents or caregivers must meet one of the following conditions:

  • Be receiving a Work and Income or Study-Link benefit or have a Community Services Card
  • Have a joint family income that qualifies for a Community Services Card
  • Have 2 or more children entered as candidates with fees more than $200?

Approved Financial Assistance Applications by NZQA will be $20 per student or a maximum of $30 per family

To get financial assistance, please fill this Financial Assistance Form and give it to Mrs Flood at the main office. If students lose this form, they can request a copy from Mrs Aiono.  

If you have any further queries, please contact the front office or visit the NZQA website: www.nzqa.govt.nz/ncea
