East students off to Silicon Valley!

On Saturday 27 September, a group of around 40 East students and four staff will depart for Silicon Valley! The trip has been designed to give Digital Technologies students from East a first hand experience of what it would be like to work in the IT industry and includes visits to Google, Facebook and Microsoft. The trip has been two years in the making, and has received quite a lot of press - some of which can be accessed via the links below:

Course Selection

Students are currently finalising course selections for next year with ako teachers and deans.  They have a physical copy of the course selection booklets - here is an electronic copy of the same information.  Click on this article link to view the PDF file.

Note:  Page 15 is useful for an overview of all subjects offered and whether they have pre-requisites.  Page 13 is useful to see which areas qualify for University Entrance, which is a goal for some Year 13 students.
