Senior College

Kura Tuākana

The Senior College philosophy is to regard students as unique young adults who are developing social responsibility within a co-educational environment, and preparing for life after College.

Our broad curriculum develops students’ academic, sporting, cultural, spiritual, social and recreational needs and builds balanced, well-rounded individuals. All students are encouraged to achieve to their highest potential in all pursuits. Senior College teachers encourage individual responsibility and leadership. They provide quality feedback to students, recognise their success and guide their progress. With the help of their tutors and Deans, students learn to become self-disciplined, self-motivated and self-directed, and become personally accountable for their own academic and social progress.

The Senior College has its own student centre, which includes a Common Room, Cafeteria, study areas, and lockers. Our students enjoy this recognition of their seniority. They are treated as young adults and given particular privileges and freedoms, within certain boundaries and responsibilities.
