You’re In Control

Teachers will set work for each of your subjects.

You’re responsible for your learning and wellbeing … with support from your whānau and staff at college.  This includes:

  • setting up and following a daily routine
  • knowing what work you have for each subject … and doing it
  • communicating with your teacher through the face-to-face lessons or by email
  • knowing when your face-to-face classes are … and attending them


A regular routine will help you during lockdown.  Use your device (e.g. Outlook Calendar) or paper to set up a daily routine with times for the following:

  • waking up
  • meal times
  • study times (classes)
  • exercise
  • relaxation
  • social time (including gaming)
  • helping around home (e.g. cooking, cleaning)
  • going to bed

Also set up a ‘to-do’ list or planner to keep track of when work or assessments are due.

Stay in Touch

Your teacher will contact you by your school email and also through MS Teams and OneNote.

Also keep in touch with your teacher.  As well as face-to-face lessons, email your teacher or leave comments on MS Teams.  If you don’t have any questions, leave a brief note about how you’re finding the work.  Your teachers want to hear from you.

How Do I Study Online?

  • Years 9-10 … you should expect to do about 2 hours of work for each subject over the week.
  • Years 11-13 … you should expect to do about 3 hours of work for each subject over the week

Your teacher will contact you early in the week with what work there is to be done.  This will include:

  • individual work (e.g. using Education Perfect, reading, doing homework, etc)
  • face-to-face learning

We are running the normal school timetable with slightly different times for each lesson.  Your teacher will let you know when your face-to-face lesson is.

Students with assessments will need to find extra time to work on their assessments.  Many NCEA assessments will continue to take place while we’re in lockdown.

Who Can Help Me?

Contact your subject teacher if you have any questions or want help with your study. Also you can contact your Dean by email. You can also contact the following staff for support with your learning:
