Pakuranga College operates six houses to provide a wide range of pastoral support, and co-curricular opportunities for students - especially student leadership.
When students arrive at the college, they are assigned to a tutor class, each with its own tutor teacher. Students will stay in the same tutor class for their entire time at Pakuranga College.
Tutor classes meet daily for twenty minutes between period 2 and the start of interval. This is the first stop of pastoral support of students, and for day-to-day administration such as dealing with absences, receiving the daily notices, etc.
Each tutor class belongs to a house which are named after New Zealand native trees. Throughout the year, the houses participate in a wide variety of activities (camps, athletics day, swimming sports, inter-house competition and leadership training).
