ENGLISH


*HEAD OF FACULTY: MS V SCOTT*

English is the study, use and enjoyment of the English language and its literature, communicated orally, visually, and in writing, for a range of purposes and audiences and in a variety of text forms. Learning English encompasses learning the language, learning through the language, and learning about the language. Understanding, using and creating oral, written and visual texts of increasing complexity is at the heart of English teaching and learning. By engaging with text-based activities, students become increasingly skilled and sophisticated speakers and listeners, writers and readers, creators and viewers.

English is integral for all further study and every type of employment.

LEARNING LANGUAGES


*HEAD OF FACULTY: MISS L CUMBERLAND*

Learning a new language provides a means of communicating with people from another culture and exploring ones own personal world. Languages and cultures play a key role in developing our personal, group, national, and human identities. Learning a language provides students with the cognitive tools and strategies to learn further languages and to increase their understanding of their own language(s) and culture(s).

As part of university programmes student are often able to complete 6 months or a year of study at universities in the country of the language study and have it accredited as part of their degree. NCEA Level 3 Language study is often a prerequisite to apply for these opportunities.

SCIENCE


*HEAD OF FACULTY: MS L BARTON*

Science requires curiosity, imagination and inspiration. In science we learn to investigate, understand and explain our world and the wider universe. We do this through the generation and testing of ideas and gathering of evidence in various ways. A good foundation in science enables problem solving and decision making in many areas of life.


Students need a basic understanding of science for many different career paths and also to cope with the challenges of technology in the world.


In the junior school we study the nature of science in the context of the living world, the material world, the physical world and planet Earth and beyond. In the senior school it is possible for students to specialise in one or more of the science disciplines.

12ESS - Level 2 Earth & Space Science

The standards and assessments in 2018 may vary slightly from those listed for levels 2 and 3.

Earth and Space Science is a stand-alone subject which looks at our environment and the factors which cause it to be the way it is, and at our place in space. In level 2 we focus more on our local neighborhood – what our planet is composed of, the different environments you might experience, how it is heated and where we fit in our solar system. In level 3 we look outside our own solar system at the possibility of life elsewhere in space, along with having a more academic focus on how our own atmosphere and oceans work – where the heat energy transfers occur and the implications for ocean currents and extremes of weather.

This course leads towards degrees in environmental science, geology and geography at most New Zealand universities. You can also sit Earth and Space Science as a scholarship subject. Taken together with physics it is good preparation for astrophysics or geophysics. It is a good supporting subject for students of geography.

You will learn to:
• carry out practical work, make observations, take and record measurements and evaluate techniques and processes
• identify the processes that have created the local Auckland landscape
• investigate the mechanisms for survival in extremely hot, cold, arid or deep water environments
• discuss how heat and light are produced and cycled within the physical and biological system of the Earth
• explain how stars, planets and moons are formed

Students need to be aware that AS91162 is also assessed in 12CHE and 12SCA

Teacher in Charge: Ms L. Barton

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery: Workbook approximately $30 plus two field trips approximately $15 each. Education Perfect (recommended) $20.

In level 3 we look outside our own solar system at the possibility of life elsewhere in space, along with having a more academic focus on how our own atmosphere and oceans work - where the heat energy transfers occur and the implications for ocean currents and extremes of weather.
This subject works well with Geography and expands on some of the learning from level 2.

You will learn to:
• investigate a current isue in an Earth and Space science context that has an impact on individuals and society
• collect scientific information from a variety of sources and report on an investigation
• investigate an astronomical event, discovery or phenomena and explain the science behind this event
• research and understand a range of methods used to date geological events
• link oceanic composition, currents, tides and cycles with phenomena such as El Nino and La Nina
• link atmospheric composition, currents, convection transport and cycles with phenomena such as trends in climate change

Students need to be aware that AS91389 is also assessed in 13CHE

Teacher in Charge: Ms L. Barton

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery: Workbook approximately $30, Biozone online ESS Academy $12, Field trip $15.

Recommended Prior Learning:

Students must have achieved 12 credits in any of 12ESS, 12CHE, 12BIO, 12PHY including at least one external achievement standard

11SCA - Level 1 Applied Science

This subject is a general science course for students who are not taking other science subjects. It occurs at both level 2 and level 3 and counts towards university entrance as a separate subject. All standards are internally assessed and so it does not provide the opportunity for subject endorsement at either level 2 or 3. Students take this course when they want to keep doing a science subject but do not want to specialise in a particular area of science. There is some overlap with other science subjects in levels 2 and 3 and so students should not be doing this course and any other science subject.

This course is designed for students who are aiming to gain literacy and numeracy at level 1 and who benefit best from a course with limited credits which are internally assessed. Students enrolling in this course are not eligible to enrol in 12BIO, 12 CHE, 12PHY or 12ESS in 2014. Students may continue on into 12SCA, Applied Science.

Note: As this course is internally assessed, it is not eligible for subject endorsement.
Standards will be selected from the following list.

You will learn to:
• collect, process and communicate information about the impact and effect of earthquakes, focusing on the Christchurch earthquakes
• investigate the properties and uses of metals in cars
• investigate how different materials keep us warm
• understand how microorganisms are used to produce food and prevent food spoilage

Teacher in Charge: Ms L. Barton

SOCIAL SCIENCES


*HEAD OF FACULTY: MR K KANDASAMY*

Through studying the social sciences, students develop the skills to engage as effective and responsible members of society. They acquire the skills to critically examine what they learn and draw conclusions after assessing the evidence. Theoretical components taught in the class are matched with various real-life activities that relate theory to practice. Students develop their ability to fit into society as responsible members, thereby contributing to their personal growth and development.


The Social Sciences faculty provides challenging learning programmes that meet the individual educational needs of all students in an authentic and engaging manner. We encourage students to draw on their prior knowledge in order to acquire a clear understanding of local, national and global issues.


Through the Social Sciences students are offered not only a window into New Zealand but the world in which they live and will contribute to in the future. Students develop a global perspective over the years they study in the Social Sciences faculty developing a tolerance and appreciation of others and their viewpoints and can confidently discuss and debate a range of issues.


*SOCIAL STUDIES: Head of Department: Mr M Williamson*


All year 9 and 10 students will study social studies. The subject is about people and how and why in different contexts they think, feel and act. It is also abut how they organise their way of life, interact with others and their environment, initiate and respond to change; and how they meet their political, social, economic, legal and spiritual needs.


Students will develop their inquiry skills to access information, interpret this information and communicate their findings using a range of technologies to do so.

Can you use your business skills to make a better world? Well, you’ll get the chance to in Business Studies in Year 12. We will give you the opportunity to develop a business plan that improves the wellbeing of a community group – it could be a charity, primary school or local club. In recent years we’ve had students collect $1000’s for charity through selling many products; students have worked in special needs as well as primary schools. Will you be next? But before you start, you’ll need to find-out exactly what your market wants – that’s where the unit on market research comes in.

On top of this you will have to make connections to business people and analyse how they motivate their staff; could you offer suggestions to raise productivity in a real business?

Finally, we do external papers. The first looks at the internal features a business – leadership, production and corporate culture, the things that makes a business tick. Then we look at the external factors impacting on business – laws, social ex

You will learn to:
• develop a business plan for a real business that benefits a community group
• understand and undertake market research
• develop enterprising and entrepreneurial attributes through running a business activity
• explore the dynamic nature of large businesses and their internal and external operations

Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Peel

13ECO - Level 3 Economics

Economics is the perfect introduction to the study of all things financial and societal at University. At Level 3 it breaks down into microeconomics, welfare economics and macroeconomics.

Economics is not just about money, a fact many people don’t understand. Money is used in economics, but it’s about much more than that. Economics is about how societies organise themselves in order to satisfy people’s needs and desires. At level 3 we study three main branches.

Micro-economics is the branch of economics that examines individual decision-making by firms and households and the way they interact in specific industries and markets.

Welfare economics looks at why governments do what they do, why they build roads, provide education and health care, as well as how this impacts on society.

Macro-economics is the branch of economics that examines the workings and problems of the economy as a whole. It is concerned with aggregate supply (total national output of goods and services) and aggregate demand (the total spending of the whole economy) and issues such as economic growth, inflation, unemployment, and economic fluctuations.

Economics is an approved subject for University Entrance and a Table B subject for Auckland University. Opportunities for extension students include the Treasury Fiscal Policy Challenge and the New Zealand Economics Competition.

We will put a great focus on Internal Assessment - therefore there should be less need to sit all three external papers.

You will learn to:
• use analysis to explain the success of a business or firm
• think like an economist and use economic terms
• turn theory into practice – use your economics to understand the real world outside of school
• understand how a whole host of factors impact on inflation, growth, unemployment and trade

Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Peel

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery: Workbook costing approximately $43.

11GEO - Level 1 Geography

Geography matters now more than ever, it isn't just learning basic map skills - latitude and longitude, cardinal directions, scale, and how to interpret the key. It is not just learning about land-forms like peninsulas, straits, and mountains. Nor is it simply discussing climate and biomes. Key Geographic skills are important but it is so much more than that! Digital technology and Google have changed that, we don't need to memorise where places are or how big a countries population is (or was) we can find that information at the push of a button.

Human Geography is important for so many reasons. Students will consider the relationships that exist between cultures, how they can be so different yet so similar and how this impacts on our lives.

Geography matters now more than eve because of crises that some countries face to the global water crisis to global health issues. Geography students at Pakuranga College will understand that learning about them is no longer enough, and that the real challenge lies in understanding what can be done to solve these issues. As a result of this our courses are contemporary and change year to year depending on what the biggest issues are and what our students think is important to them.

Geography matters because this is our world and we can make a difference.

You will look at:
• the horrific event that shaped New Zealand’s recent history, how did it happen and what are the consequences? Describe the processes involved in earthquakes and the impact that such events have on people
• the world is overpopulated in some areas, why is it growing and what is the future for the people in these areas? What about the other areas? Water? Describe how world populations have changed and continue to do so, as well as the impact this has on the places people live
• discover Gold and Silver in Waihi, is it sustainable? How do we use it? How are impacted by it? Describe how humans use natural resources and how this can be done in a sustainable way
• what’s up in New Zealand that impacts on a number of different people and the environment and what can be done about it?
• research how people get to school, or where do people go when it’s raining, is there enough shelter in the school? Research and present a geographic investigation at a local scale
• apply a range of geographic skills and ideas, such as mapping, photo interpretation and graph construction to different settings
• apply skills to Google Earth and run scenarios that could see how New Zealand's second busiest port could be affected by an extreme national event.

11HIS - Level 1 History

Why do people take to the streets to protest? Could a dictatorship happen in our society today? Was America justified in dropping the atomic bomb? How does Hollywood change our ideas about history?

History is about the big questions and how we can find answers that we can trust. In History you can explore the difference between alternative facts and the truth about what really happened. You can delve into the past and put yourself in someone else's shoes to understand the motives and emotions that can tear people apart or help them work together. From New Zealand to Vietnam, from America to Japan transport yourself to a different time and place to understand the similarities and differences between those that came before us and how we live today.

Taking History builds the practical skills required to do research and to think critically.

You will learn to:
• explore history through Māori activism and the occupation of Bastion Point
• examine the civil rights journey in the USA from slavery to the unrest on Baltimore’s streets today
• investigate the roots of the Second World War
• explore the long road from racism to reconciliation in South Africa
• develop an understanding of how in the 1980s, rugby led to violence on New Zealand's streets

TECHNOLOGY


*HEAD OF FACULTY: MR G BRINSDEN*

Technology is the intervention by design: the use of practical and intellectual resources to develop products and systems (technological outcomes) that expand human possibilities by addressing needs and realising opportunities.

Adaptation and innovation are the heart of the technological practice. Quality outcomes result from thinking and practices that are informed, critical and creative. Technology makes enterprising use of its own particular knowledge and skills, together with those of other disciplines. Graphics and other forms of visual representation offer important exploration for communication.

*YEAR 10 EXTENSION and SPECIALISED COURSE* (One or two semesters)

Each semester presents an opportunity to follow a specialised course of study in a technology specialism. Students who choose a two semester course will have an opportunity to use each semester to study one of the five subjects offered. The subjects offered will be product design technology (working with wood and metal), electronics technology (using electronics and constructing circuits), textiles technology (designing and making fashion related items), food technology (using food with a focus on nutrition), graphics (using basic design skills) and computing (programming and web development). Each of these courses is designed to extend the students’ technological competence and confidence and provide a useful foundation for the level 1 courses.

*IMPORTANT INFORMATION WHEN CHOOSING YOUR YEAR 10 TECHNOLOGY SUBJECT*

As well as the Core subjects students choose from The Arts, Languages and Technology.  They must choose *three courses* with no more than *two* choices from any one learning area. If you choose a language for two semesters you can only choose one more subject either from The Arts or Technology.

*SENIOR COURSES*

Courses with a more achievement standard focus are designed for students wanting to go onto university, i.e. product design technology, fashion design technology, graphics, computing, robotics and information technology.

Courses with a more unit standard focus are designed for students who wish to pursue a trade or apprenticeship, however the credits can be used to meet university requirements, i.e. food and nutritional studies, hospitality, engineering, automotive engineering, automotive body repair, building technology, computer aided and technical drawing, beginners comuting and nformation technology adn computer studies.

This course offers students the opportunity to manage all aspects of the design and development of their own autonomous mobile robot. This includes concept development and trialling, circuitry design and construction, mechanical design and construction and testing and software development.
Students will learn how to use 3D printers and a CNC machine for manufacturing printed circuits. Perhaps most importantly they will learn how to manage their own time and resources to successfully complete a complex and substantial project.

You will learn to:
• solve technological problems relating to complex embedded computer systems
• use sophisticated software to design and manufacture printed circuit boards
• recognise and use electronic components and systems
• design and construct complex, autonomous electro-mechanical systems
• program embedded computer systems

Teacher in Charge: Mr H. Russ

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery: “It is strongly recommended that students have a laptop computer capable of running Windows for this course, as the majority of the course work requires the use of the Arduino programming environment and Diptrace for designing printed circuits. Students need to be able to use this software at home as well as school, to get the most out of this course.”

$40 - This will cover the materials and component costs of most of the projects undertaken as a part of the course however, any extra materials needed for self directed and complex or large projects may require the purchase of extra or specialist components.

Recommended Prior Learning: Successfully completed the level 1 Robotics course with at least 13 credits or having completed an appropriate Technology or Science course.

THE ARTS


*HEAD OF FACULTY: MS F KEITH-KIRK*

The Arts are powerful forms of expression that recognise value and contribute to the unique bi-cultural and multi-cultural character of Aotearoa/New Zealand, enriching the lives of all New Zealanders. In The Arts, students learn to work both independently and collaboratively to construct meanings, produce works and respond to and value the contribution of others through dance, drama, music and visual arts. They learn to use imagination to engage with unexpected outcomes and to explore multiple solutions.

The Arts give us the opportunity to express those ideas that can often find no other voice.
