 COVID-19 Update (11/08/20)

Kia ora whānau. Tonight, the Prime Minister announced that our region would be moving into Level 2 from 12pm tomorrow, and that this will last for at least three days. This means that school is still open for WCC staff and students, unless you are unwell. It is also important that we maintain good hand-washing routines and sensible physical distancing. We will be sure to update you as we get any further information. Kia kaha koutou.

Interest Free Chromebook available to WCC Students

After allowing our Y9 students first dibs on these, we would now like to make the same offer available to ALL of our WCC students.

The Chromebooks are supplied by Warehouse Stationery and have an overall price of $300. To help make this more manageable for you, simply pay a $30 deposit upfront to WCC, then pay the remainder off over the rest of the year via Automatic Payment. No interest will be charged. It couldn’t be easier!

To take advantage of this awesome opportunity, fill in and return the two forms in the folder below to the school. Full details are found in the folder. Be in quick though – limited stock remains!!!

WCC and the Donations Scheme 2020

We have had a number of inquiries about donations at WCC. This short document outlines our involvement in the Donations Scheme and what it means for you.

Nau mai, haere mai.

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. 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 Whanganui City College ‘the pride of Whanganui’.

Principal’s Welcome

Whanganui City College is a school that lives by its mantra – Challenging ourselves for a better future.
