Year 10 Camps - Payment Due

Reminder - Year 10 Camps fees are due Friday 28 September (end of Term Three)

Year 10 Camps run from Monday 26 November to Friday 30 November. As this can be a costly exercise, particularly so close to Christmas, the school offers an automatic payment option to help budget for this. Forms are available from the school office. A reminder, camps are a privilege, not a right, and that the school reserves the right to remove a student from their selected camp. If you have any questions regarding Year 10 Camps, please contact Mrs Newton by phoning 356 4817 or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

Mathex 2018

Congratulations to those involved in Mathex 2018. Mathex is a challenging and fast-paced mathematical contest where teams compete against each other to solve maths problems as quickly as possible.

This year, Awatapu hosted the event and were responsible for planning and organising the tournament. Well done to our team of talented senior maths students who did a fantastic job marking answers. In all, over 30 teams from across Palmerston North, Whanganui, Dannevirke, Marton and Feilding competed in the event.

Our Year 9 and 10 teams did extremely well. Notable congratulations to the Year 9 team, Isaiah Birch, Sam Brown, Josh Stretch and Luca Jackson-Hamid, who achieved first place overall. All of our students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and represented the College admirably. We look forward to repeating our success next year!
