  IMPORTANT MESSAGES                                                                                                    

STAFF ONLY DAY

FFC will be holding a Staff Only Day on November 7th and November 24th to allow for all staff of the school to come together to discuss an end of Year 10 Fairfield College student profile and a Fairfield College leaver profile.  Staff will also be provided with time on this day to work on their Year 9 and Year 10 learning units.  A key focus is to ensure that the learning programmes that we are providing for our Year 9 and Year 10 students are aligned with the skills, knowledge, values, and competencies that we want our end of Year 10 students to possess as they move into NCEA.  Note school will be closed for instruction on these days.

    • After this code you MUST put a space then any message you want to send.

  NEW MOBILE APP CALLED "NCEA GUIDE"                                                                      

NZQA is launching a new mobile 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.
