Student Support

Kick Start Breakfast

Breakfast Club serves around 120 free breakfasts each week, and operates on every Wednesday and Thursday mornings for the 45 minutes before school starts.

Each year 9 and 10 classes are rostered on each week to supply four willing helpers. On both mornings we offer cartons of Mega Milk, provided by Fonterra and Weetbix provided by Sanitarium. On Thursdays, in addition to this the school provides toast and jam and french toast or scrambled eggs.

Thanks to our many volunteers who help make the Kick Start Breakfast programme a success.

VIBE Clinic

Naenae College runs a VIBE Health Clinic. This is a nurse‐led school clinic and is a free service available to all students. We are open Monday to Friday, and doctors appointments are available on Wednesday mornings.

Dental Clinic

Free basic dental care is available for adolescents from the start of college (School Year 9) up to their 18th Birthday.  Naenae College has a dental service on site until the end of Term 2.  The service is provided by Capital Dental.  Students are sent for daily and Mrs Marsh in the Student Centre has been working her way through students from Year 13 to Year 9.  If a student has not identified a current dentist on their enrolment form then they will be given an appointment.

If you child is complaining of tooth ache or you would like them to see the dentist urgently, please phone the Student Centre on 5677175, ext 820.

Rock and Water

We use the Rock and Water programme at Naenae College to develop social skills, self-control, self-confidence and self-realisation for students and adults. The Rock and Water programme is also used in a multitude of ways including as a very effective anti-bullying tool, to help students with ASD and special needs develop confidence, body- and emotional awareness, and to develop positive, healthy education and work environments.

Drug and Alcohol Counselling

Counsellors from WellTrust are available if students need help with alcohol or drug issues. Students need to make an appointment through Mrs Renata.
