Term 2 News
Welcome back to Term 2.
1. We have organised Term 2 meetings and you can find these on the Home page of this site. Please note the ‘cut off’ date for
your meeting and make sure you book in both your files and yourself, using the booking form, and student official forms.
2. Accreditation for the new qualifications - there are three parts to the process. One - SPEC writes a letter to support your
application. Two - your school must identify contact hours, resources, staffing three - the teacher/s needs to provide a CV.
Westmount School have successfully achieved accreditation for the Skills for Living, and they are willing to share the detail
they submitted. Contact the SPEC office if you wish a copy of this.
4. NEW RESOURCES - We have five new Headway modules: In the Environment section, Creatures, Science Splash and
Transport, and in the Leisure section, Kiwi Icons and History.
We have also two new progression charts for the new NZ qualifications and detail of modules. Click on the Home page
