Year 9 Course Requirements

Year 9 Curriculum

Core classes:

  • Religious Education
  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Physical Education


At Year 9, students choose FOUR half-year options. They must choose  Digital Technology and then three more half-year options. 

  • Digital Technology 
  • Business Studies (including an introduction to Economics and Accounting)
  • Te Reo Māori
  • Drama
  • Japanese
  • Music
  • Technology (including an introduction to Graphics)
  • Visual Art
  • Art Design

Please note that the Liston Intermediate Sports Academy runs in addition to the above options. Students must register their interest first here on Schoolpoint and Mr. Hughes will contact them with more details.

Also, the Ministry of Education has mandated that students are required to have Digital Technology in some form from years 7-10.

Finally, Year 9 option selection is dependent on student choice numbers and our ability to staff the courses. Therefore, the availability of a student's option choice is subject to change and we recommend that everyone choose a backup.
