Assessment and reporting

In Years 9 and 10 the emphasis is on acquiring the skills and habits to make sure students will gain good qualifications in the senior school.  

Students in all classes are regularly assessed against the National Curriculum standards and records are maintained on the school KAMAR database. These records are available to parents and can also be viewed through the parent portal on the College website. 

Our aim is for all Year 11 students to reach NCEA level 1 literacy and numeracy competency levels to give them confidence for the years ahead.  Special programmes and pathways are in place to achieve this.

There are three reports issued and two report conferences held during the year.  Our reporting is a Merit Award system placing emphasis on academic achievement and key competencies as set out in the New Zealand curriculum document. These are:

  • Managing self
  • Relating to others
  • Participating and contributing.

The emphasis is on celebrating achievements, recognising needs and planning to meet those needs.
