  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 three 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.
  3. By texting: The number parents text to is 3255.  Please include the following information:
    • When you text you MUST start your text message with the following keyword "faircol"
    • After this code you MUST put a space then any message you want to send.
    • When parents send in a text, they will automatically get the following response: "Thank you for your reply Fairfield College"

  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.
