Year 11 Science: Live-wire Learning for NCEA

To assist your son with his preparation for the various NCEA Level 1 science, chemistry, biology and physics standards we have subscribed to Live-wire learning.

This online facility proved very helpful for the boys in previous years and recommend that they take this opportunity to support their learning. 

Boys will gain confidence in using specific scientific language and assess their understanding with immediate feedback. It is available from home as well as school and boys can use it to revise and help fill gaps of the course left by absences from class. Teachers may also email the boys to set a specific test or for revision and scores are recorded.

Live-wire can be used as from today and the cost $12 + GST. Each boy will receive a password from the teacher to access the website.
