Every standard in this course contains written tasks to be completed. Students who are entitled to reader/writer assistance need to draw this to the attention of the teacher at the beginning of the school year so that assistance can be arranged well before the deadlines of the assessment.

Due dates will be advised by your teacher and are not negotiable. Incomplete work will not be assessed subject to the school NCEA policy.
