Sometimes parents and students can become concerned that students are not succeeding, and that students are not learning as much as they could be. Through the year written reports are provided to parents to give feedback on students' progress. If you have concerns about your child's progress, based on a report or generally, you have a number of ways of getting assistance :
Contact the Subject Teacher
You are welcome to make contact with your child's teachers if you have any questions about the course, and what she or he is supposed to be learning.
Contact the Tutor Teacher
Tutor classes meet daily. Each student belongs to one tutor class, which they stay with through their time at the College. Tutor teachers can be contacted as an initial contact point for parents and whanau.
Contact the Dean
If you have any concerns, would like some specific feedback about your child ... contact his or her Dean and ask for an appointment. This is especially so if the issue appears to be across a number of subjects and if it is also about motivation or attitude.
Contact Learner Support
If you believe extra help is required Learner Support Students with specific learning difficulties are given special support through our Learner Support department.
Support for students' learning can take a variety of forms including "in class support" and withdrawal from class for specialised attention.
The college has a comprehensive reading programme for students identified as in need of help. In addition we run a special peer tutoring programme supported by volunteer year 12 students.
