So please have a look around to learn what our College can offer you and get in touch with our office if you have any further questions on (07) 549 0434.

On Tuesday evening we held our Graduation Dinner - one of the many highlights of our Year 13 students' final year at Katikati College. This was a wonderful evening and a fantastic opportunity for families to reminisce over the many years of schooling together. Thank you to those staff and students who made this evening the success that it was.
This week we also held Academic Assemblies for Year 11 - 13 students. This was an opportunity for teachers to recognise those students who have been engaged in their learning throughout the year. We also celebrated those students who had competed in a range of sporting events, been in cultural groups and provided service to the school.
For our Year 7 - 10 students there are five more weeks of learning ahead. During this time there are junior projects, end of year assessments and lots of learning still to take place. Please make sure that your child is attending regularly. As I said in my start of term email, the Ministry of Education states that regular attendance is 90% or more. That is no more than 1 day away in a fortnight. Regular attendance allows students to feel more connected to their peers and school and improves their educational outcomes.
If you have not seen the post on Facebook, the College magazine is now available to be purchased from the main office at a cost of $25. The magazine contains all the class photos and images from the events that happened this year. It is a great reminder of all the amazing activities our students are involved in.
At our last whole school assembly for the term we announced the Head Students for 2023.
These are as follows:
Head Students - Isla Willacy & Peter Buckley
Deputy Head Students - Gemma Groenewald & Meg Harray
Congratulations to these students and all the students who put themselves forward for these positions. The other leadership positions are currently being decided upon.
Good luck to our senior students who are sitting NCEA exams. I look forward to farewelling our Year 13s and other senior students at our Senior Prize Giving on Tuesday 6 December at 6 pm.
