Good afternoon

Congratulations to those students who have already completed their NCEA qualification this year.  We will be emailing out certificates of completion over the next three weeks to those students who have attained the credits they need.

Junior students – Years 9 and 10

The current government restrictions do not allow you to be onsite at this time.   Please continue with distance learning via the learn at home spreadsheet.

Senior students – Years 11, 12 and 13

You have the choice to remain at home and complete distance learning and assessment at this time.  Alternatively, to help you complete your necessary NCEA qualifications you can be onsite for specific times as long as you follow the following health and safety guidelines below:

If you are coming onsite:

  • You must not come onsite if you are unwell.  Any students who arrive unwell will be sent home and parents notified.
