2023 Course Selection

Please use the attached material as a starting point for Y9 – 12 students to build their 2023 academic programme.

We encourage the selection of subjects to build a programme of study that meets your son’s future needs, whether they have an intended career pathway or are wanting to give themselves a variety of options.

Students are encouraged to make ‘informed decisions’. This means consulting the attached material and speaking with different groups before making their course selection. For example, parents, whānau, teachers, Deans, Careers Department and of course people in the related industries.

Bookings for Ms Laurs, Careers Advisor, can be made directly by students at the Careers Office, or ph. 8335900 ext. 220.

Please complete your son’s subject selection through the KAMAR Parent Portal 

If you have difficulty accessing the portal, please contact the School Office.

Course selection for 2023 should be completed by Friday, 26 August.



Authenticity is the assurance that evidence of achievement produced by a learner is their own. At NBHS we manage this through regular checking of student work and assistive technology using Turnitin. All students who complete an internal assessment must complete a declaration that states that the work they that have submitted is their own.  


Extensions for NCEA internal assessments will be granted at the discretion of the Principal’s Nominee. The attached extension form should be completed by the student’s parent or caregiver. Extensions will be granted for sickness. However, a medical certificate may be required.
