Strike Update as of 7/6/19

We have been advised by the PPTA that the Year 10 rostering home planned for Tuesday 11 June 2019 is cancelled.

NZQA Fees Update

The Minister of Education has announced that families of secondary students will no longer have to pay fees for NCEA and New Zealand Scholarship. International students will still need to pay fees.

Any fees already collected by Awatapu College for 2019 have been credited to students accounts and either left in credit, used to pay outstanding costs, or used to cover donations if donations had already been part paid.

If caregivers require the fee to be refunded, then they need to get in touch with the School Office.

Board of Trustees Election Voting Notification 2019

Voting papers for the Board of Trustees 2019 election were sent to eligible voters on 29 May 2019. These need to be returned by 12 noon on Friday 7 June 2019.

If posting your voting papers, it is important that these are posted ASAP – NZ Post has reduced the frequency of its mail delivery service and can no longer guarantee that all envelopes will be post marked. For those envelopes that are not post marked, Returning Officers will not have any evidence that the envelope has been posted before 12 noon on election day, and as such will not be counted.

Please note, the voting paper is valid only if returned in the addressed envelope provided.

Rolling Strikes

Notification of Rolling Strikes for Secondary Schools from PPTA as at 30 May 2019

At the time of writing, these strikes will be held as follows:
Tuesday 4 June - Year 9
Tuesday 11 June - Year 10
Friday 21 June - Regional Full Strike (Years 9-13)
Tuesday 25 June - Year 11

Students in these levels will not have classes, therefore we ask that they do not attend school on that day. We apologise for any inconvenience. Should this change we will notify parents/caregivers as soon as possible.
