Tena koutou e te whānau 

Term 4 has been another significant term for Fairfield College.  It has been great to see our students achieve and for our staff to be working with the students to enable this achievement to occur.

Attendance is a key indicator of achievement and we have set a school goal of 92%.  Please report student absences by either one of the methods below:
  1. By telephone: call 853 5660 extn: 837.  Please record the full name of student, their whanau class and the reason for their absence.
  2. By email: absentees@faircol.school.nz   Please record the full name of the student, their whanau class and the reason for their absence.

  MOBILE APP CALLED "NCEA GUIDE"                                                                               

NZQA has launched an App called "NCEA Guide" written for parents, whanau and employers.

The App will provide quick and easy access to key information about NCEA and makes practical information about NCEA more easily accessible.  Parents and whanau will be able to access simple content about how NCEA works and how they can support family members studying in NCEA (no individual student result or progress information is available).
The App also supports employers seeking to understand and evaluate NCEA graduates and their qualification.  Content can be viewed in English and Te Reo Maori.
The NCEA Guide App will be free to download from the Apple App store and Google Play Store from early in the week of 26 May.
Information will be added to the NZQA website to promote the App and on launch day there will be social messages sent out about how to download it.
If you have any questions about the App or would like further information please contact Gill Hancock, Principals Nominee.
