Senior Derived Grades Examinations (21-25 August)
Please note that the timetable and rules for these examinations are now available here. Senior students should check these immediately to confirm the dates and times of their examinations. If there are any clashes, they should see Mr Lynch urgently.

These examinations are 'Derived Grade Examinations'. In the event that a student is not able to participate in the end of year examinations, their assessed grade will be based on their results in these examinations. It is important that students prepare thoroughly! Students are encouraged to take advantage of the many lunchtime and after-school tutorials being held by staff this term.

There will be no study leave during the examination week. If students are not in an exam, they will be in their regularly timetabled classes.

Whanganui City College Graduate Profile
As a result of consultation with our school community, undertaken in the past 12 months, we have developed our WCC Graduate Profile. This statement represents who we want our students to be when they finish their time with us.

"Whanganui City College leavers are independent, lifelong learners who are confident and creative people. They are proud of their heritage, actively contribute to family and community, and are connected to the global society."

This profile is supported by our emphasis on 'Te Wero' and the values underlying this.
Whanaungatanga - the foundation, the rock, the starting point on which everything we do in the school rests.
Empathetic - Able to engage with and accept people from all walks of life.
Resilient - Actively seeking to identify and resolve challenges in learning and life.
Oranga - To encourage a healthy future for all.

As part of the process of strengthening these values and supporting our learners to attain the Graduate Profile, we are committed to examining the ways in which we do things, in order to plan our pathway towards better futures.
