Years 7 and 8

Students in Years 7 and 8 at Pompallier Catholic College enjoy the structure and security of a single Homeroom situation with their individual Homeroom Teachers taking them for the majority of their subjects in the New Zealand Curriculum.

Year 7 and 8 classes are grouped to enable an effective learning environment. Special attention is given to any student experiencing learning difficulties through Specialist Teacher and Teacher Aide assistance and support.

Subjects include:

  • Religious Studies
  • Te reo Māori
  • English
  • The Arts
  • Mathematics
  • Technology
  • Science
  • Physical Health & Wellbeing
  • Social Studies
  • Digital Technology

Students in Years 7 and 8 become accustomed to being taught by different teachers for some subjects. The Science and Technology programme covers the areas:-

  • Food
  • Hard Materials
  • Experimental Science

The students are taught these subject areas and some others by specialist teachers in specialist classrooms. Introductory modules are provided in Te reo Māori and French.

Because the philosophies of the College are shared across all levels and many activities in the life of the College involve students across all levels, the movement from Year 7 and 8 into Year 9 is seen as a natural progression rather than as a new start.
