Kia ora koutou

Welcome to the start of the 2023 school year. I look forward to welcoming our students back over the coming weeks and connecting with parents and whānau.

There are a number of significant events occurring for the start of the school year.

  • Friday 27 January - senior re-enrolment for students in Years 11 - 13. This is for students who do not yet have a complete timetable. This will take place in the College Hall from 9.30 am to 2 pm.

  • Thursday 2 February - Year 7 & new student orientation. The day begins with a pōwhiri which parents and whānau are very welcome to attend. Students are to meet in the College Hall at 8.30 am. Other than Year 7 students, all other new students will be dismissed by their Dean at the conclusion of the pōwhiri.

  • Friday 3 February - all students are expected to attend school. At 8.30 am Year 7 students are to go to their form class, Years 8 - 10 are to go to the Meads Gym and Years 11 - 13 are to meet in the Hall. Years 9 - 13 will finish at 1.20 pm.

  • Monday 13 February - Year 7 & 8 Information Evening from 5.30 pm

Please be aware that the canteen will not be operating on these days. I apologise in advance for this and ask that students come to school with a packed lunch.

School buses will be running as normal from Thursday 2 February.

Please remember to order your school stationery through the following 


If you require a paper copy of the stationery requirements or assistance with ordering, please contact the College office. The office staff will be more than happy to be of assistance.

All students are expected to be in attendance at school on Tuesday 7 February. It is extremely important that students are attending school regularly from the start of the year. This is when teaching and learning commences. It is when classroom expectations are made clear, when courses are explained and most importantly when connections are created between the student and the teacher.

I am looking forward to this year and the opportunity to meet our new students, connect with our new families and encourage and support the successes of our young people. I continue to be incredibly proud of all the things that we achieve as a school.
