Schoolbridge App

We highly recommend that parents download and install the schoolbridge app.
When reporting absences via the app, it not only fills in all of your child's details, it allows the absence to be imported directly into the system. You can also look at previous absence reports and request 'exit passes' if your child needs to leave school during the day.

You will be able to complete permission slips, book academic conferences and more, all in one place from your phone/tablet. Download Instructions HERE.

Music Information Evening

There will be an information evening on Thursday 8 February from 5.30-6.30pm in the Orewa Arts and Events Centre for any new students to the college who are interested in taking itinerant music lessons. Information will be given on instrumental lessons and how to register.

All students wanting itinerant lessons on an instrument or voice this year, (even if you had lessons last year) must fill out a registration form - click HERE to register.

Student ID and Form Class Photos Day

This will take place on Friday 16 February in the Orewa Arts & Events Centre. Please CLICK HERE for the timetable.

Please remind your child(ren) to dress in full uniform. Students will be given a name card which they must hold when their photo is taken. If students do not have their correct name card, and photos need to be retaken, an administration fee of $25 plus the cost of the replacement student ID card will be charged.

There will be a catch-up day for ID photos on Friday 23 February for those students who were away on 16 February.
