Early closure of school - September 9
Recently, you may have heard reports about an upcoming PPTA Union meeting. The purpose of this is to allow teachers to discuss how the Government’s proposed Global Budget is likely to affect the education of your children. In Whanganui, the date for this meeting will be September 9th. As a result, on that day, classes at Whanganui City College will end for the day at 1pm.
Congratulations to the WCC U15 Rugby team, who defeated Rangitikei College in the final game of the season. The win means that they are the undefeated champions for 2016!
URGENT REMINDER for Year 11-13 Students -
NZQA Fees (Sep 6) and Financial Assistance
Forms (Aug 31).
Following on from previously published information, this is a reminder that all students doing NCEA Levels 1, 2 or 3 in 2016 will need to pay the NZQA fee of $76.70 by 6th September. If fees are paid late, the NZQA will add an extra $50 to the outstanding fee. Please note that students will not receive a Record of Learning from the NZQA, if the 2016 fee is not paid.
If a student has applied for and been granted financial assistance, the fee may be reduced to $20 per student, or $15 each with two siblings, or $10 each with three siblings. The application forms for Financial Assistance are due before Wednesday, August 31st. If you still need a copy of the form, you can download one from the link here, or pick one up from the school.
Please call the school if you have any questions.
The timetable for the upcoming examinations (August 29 - Sep 2) can now be found here.
NOTE - normal classes will continue to run throughout these exams, so if a student is not scheduled for an exam, they are to be in their regular class.
These exams are important. If, for some reason, a student is not able to attend an end of year NCEA examination, their performance in these school exams will be considered when establishing a derived grade. Students should make sure they study effectively, attend and give their best effort!
Enrolments for 2017 are now open. Download and complete an enrolment form here. Then bring the completed forms in to the front office.
