Tuesday 2nd August 2022
5.30pm to 7.30pm
Awatapu College Gymnasium
Students and Parents interested in joining Awatapu College in the year 2023 are warmly invited to attend the Awatapu College Open Night (including Special Needs Block) on Tuesday 2nd August 2022 at 5.30pm. Please assemble in the College Gymnasium. Enquiries at all year levels are welcome.
I am sure you were as pleased as I was to hear the Prime Minister’s announcement about moving to Alert Level 1. This means that all students should now be returning to school – unless unwell.
For us, there will be no major changes to what we are currently doing and our school continues to be safe for all to attend, including any staff / students who are considered more vulnerable to COVID-19.
We have a good cleaning routines in place, access to hand sanitizer, people who are sick are staying at home, and we will continue to encourage good hygiene practices.
What is changing is we can now look forward to inter-school and community sport, cultural events and performances, and to welcoming all of our school community back on site for these activities.
We therefore look forward to seeing you very soon.
The Awatapu College Special Needs Block invites Year 7 & 8 students to an exploration day.

We know some of our students - and their whānau - are worried that they might not be able to attain NCEA or UE this year, because of the disruption caused by COVID-19. To help address this and support students, the following changes are being made to NCEA and University Entrance (UE) requirements for this year:
These changes have been designed to encourage students to continue working towards their NCEA and to ensure that the NCEA attained by our rangatahi this school year is just as valid as those earned in previous years.
