Student ID Cards
Student ID Cards are available free at the main office. Cards are valid for one year and can offer students major discounts on travel, entertainment and food. Students can obtain an ID card at any time during the year, but it will still only be valid until the last day of the Christmas school holidays (usually around Waitangi Day).
Home study, in a regular and purposeful manner is essential if full advantage is to be gained from the work at school. Parents are asked to co-operate with the College in the supervision of this work.
A general guide to the time spent on homework each night is:
- Year 9 – 1 hour
- Year 10 – 1 ½ hours
- Year 11+ – Generally a minimum of 2 hours.
Each pupil should keep a clear record of homework and will be encouraged to enter it onto their Google Calendar. Hapara also keeps track of deadlines and sends reminders to students about the work due
If no specific homework is set, pupils should spend the time in revision of work or reading to widen their background knowledge. Each night, pupils should check over that day’s work to ensure it is understood.
