Welcome to Wanganui City College; Te Kura Tuarua o Te Manawa

On behalf of the staff and students of Wanganui City College it is my pleasure to be able to welcome you to our website. As you will see on the website our school is very proud of its tradition. 2011 saw the college celebrate 100 years of delivering a top class educational service to the Wanganui region.



It is our aim to set high academic standards and challenge our students to reach their full potential through learning programmes that are tailored to meet their individual needs.

As a staff we have embraced the new curriculum and its changes. We are prepared to meet the demands of the 21st century learning needs and outcomes. We foster high expectations and self esteem by demanding high standards of behaviour, through discipline, courtesy and respect.

Our college is committed to providing a caring learning environment, where staff and students feel safe and supported. We have zero tolerance of any kind of anti-social behaviour.

As a school we expect only the best from our students. In return we want to produce and encourage successful and responsible members of our community.

Spend time reading about our school through the website and we look forward to communicating with you in the future. Once again welcome to Wanganui City College 'the pride of Wanganui'.


Peter Kaua
Principal
