Fairfield College - Putting Students 1st




"Celebrating our Successes"

 MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL                                                                                     

Tena koutou e te whaanau

Happy New Year and welcome to Fairfield College for 2017.  A special welcome to the Year 9 students, and your whaanau, who are joining us for the first time.  Also to the returning Years 10, 11, 12 and 13 students, welcome back.  The teaching staff and I look forward to working closely with you throughout the year to ensure the ongoing success for your learning progress and achievement.

The 2017 school year has started positively and there have been a number of significant school events that have already occurred such as the annual Year 13 camp in Raglan and the Year 9 Barbecue which provided the opportunity for the parents of our Year 9 students to meet the teachers of their children.  School athletics and swimming sports will be happening in the next two weeks and our Year 9 camp will be held from March 6 to March 10.  

2017 will be a special year for Fairfield College because it marks the 60th year since the school first opened.

  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.
