Papakura High School Booklet - Our School
Greetings, Kia ora, Talofa lava, Malo e lelei, Kia orana, Fakaalofa lahi autu, Namaste,
Thank you for choosing Papakura High School. We feel privileged that you are entrusting us with your child's secondary education.
We aim to make the transition from Primary to Secondary as easy as possible and welcome you into our school family. We have a strong focus on pathways at our school, preparing students for employment when they leave us, either via tertiary study or straight into jobs. We work with businesses and other partners to give our students the best opportunities.
We offer a wide range of activities outside the classroom and we are proud of our success with cultural activities and sports. We have had many representatives in local and national sports teams. I am especially proud of our many ex-students who graduate successfully from University or enter employment.
We aim to prepare your child for tertiary education and employment. Papakura High School is a school within the Kootuitui Trust. This means that your child may be engaged with all their learning at school using a digital device. This will be a Chromebook if he/she is a year 9-11 student after 2017. Children are the centre of teaching and learning and we aim to share with you the journey into making your child a connected, confident, responsible and life-long learner.
Please read through the attached materials and if you have any questions please contact Ms Lisa Mortimer, Deputy Principal.
We look forward to developing a strong partnership between you, your child and ourselves so that your son or daughter is proud to be a member of the Papakura High School Community.
