 MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL                                                                                     

Tena koutou e te whaanau

A letter was sent home on February 27th to inform parents that the school is moving to replace conventional post communications with digital communications.  In doing this Fairfield College is following a similar trend followed by other businesses and organisations because it is a more effective means of communicating important information. Thank you to all parents and caregivers that responded to the request to update their e-mails.  I encourage all parents/caregivers to ensure that the school does have their latest e-mail address.

The Parent / Student Web Portal is an important tool that provides the school with the capacity to publish student information onto the web, for access by both parent and student.  This information includes; calendar, notices, details, timetable, attendance achievement, and Student Reports.  If you have not received a portal username and password for access to this information please e-mail the school at brownl@faircol.school.nz and this will be sent to you. To access the Parent / Student Portal on the school website please see the left hand side 2nd from top 'Student/Parent/Caregiver Portal' click on Student Managements System Portal, enter username and password. Student Reports are now also accessed through the Parent / Student Portal.

  REPORTING STUDENT ABSENCE                                                                                      

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.
