Our college is built to embody the Whanau (pronounced far-no), or House system. Each student belongs to one of six Houses, which is their home within the college, where they are part of an extended family of teachers and students, and where they have a locker, kitchen facilities, computers, photocopying facilities, their home room, and somewhere to relax and socialise with other students.
We are a Microsoft Pathfinder school, and a Microsoft Mentor school. Students may access the internet, and intranet using high-speed broadband throughout the college. Internet access is guaranteed in all homestays.
All students are encouraged to take part in this programme.
We have a large team of dedicated staff who provide support to International Students.
