Shelley Power Principal Wairarapa College

Shelley Power – Principal

I am tremendously proud to be the Principal of such a great school.

Wairarapa College prides itself on its long and proud sporting, cultural and academic history. The current slogans our students live their school lives by are: Thriving, Student Centred and Future Focussed. These underpin our drive to be a high achieving school with a strong tradition, operating in a modern context.

Thus we have embraced technology, have revamped courses to provide both academic and vocational pathways, all leading to qualification outcomes. And we have maintained the high quality of the opportunity we provide in sporting and cultural pursuits.

Through various features of this website, parents can: enrol here; locate information on courses and qualifications at every year level; communicate with teachers and staff; find out about learning and participation opportunities; read school information like the newsletters and keep up to date with the school calendar, events and successes. Sections on the hostel and the International Students keep these parts of the school connected.

Further links to the school can be made through the parent portal on KAMAR, the school student management system, where parents can find out information about their own child’s attendance, learning programme, pastoral record and achievement.

Through the staff pages, contact can be made any time with our school’s deans who look after each year level. They are a crucial point of contact for parents. Senior leadership will also be available at any time for communication.

I welcome you to the world of Wairarapa College. I aim to see that our school can provide you with the quality of education you expect for your child. I look forward to 2017 being a year of great development for the school.
