WCC and the Donations Scheme
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’.
Whanganui City College is a school that lives by its mantra – Challenging ourselves for a better future.
