Junior Curriculum
Our junior students our now on their way on their Inquiry Based Learning journey. The focus of the first few weeks was 'Turangawaewae'. 

Following our camp at Mangatepopo, our Year 9s have now moved onto a study of 'Nga Maunga'. Year 10 students are looking at 'Mana Tangata', specifically focusing on 'the health of the people'.

Bring Your Own Devices - 2018
From 2018, students at all year levels will be encouraged to bring their own digital devices to school. These devices must be fit for purpose and used as a tool for learning.  

Please note that the use of BYOD at Whanganui City College is not compulsory, and is merely presented as an option for those who wish to take it.

For further information, please read this letter.
