Kia Ora,

Welcome to Papamoa College.

An effective school requires the coming together of many people and the combination of a complex array of programmes and activities. School life is always busy, dynamic and exciting.

It is important though to be reminded that the primary purpose of any school is to promote student learning and ultimately increase achievement.  Everything we do must contribute to improving student learning.  

The NZ Curriculum provides us with the scope to develop learners not only in particular learning areas (English, Mathematics, Science, Social Science, Arts, Physical Education and Health, Technology and Languages) but also in the key competencies (Thinking, Language Symbols and Text, Participation and Contribution, Managing self, Relating to others).  

Students need to receive an excellent education, that will result in obtaining relevant academic qualifications.

An equally important area for the development of young people is to become valuable, participating and contributing members of society.  Learning how to live in a community with an attitude of service and according to a set of positive values, will provide a sound basis for a rich and rewarding life experience.

At Papamoa College we put the learner first and respond to their learning requirements.  Students are provided with interesting and varied learning experiences to cater for different learning needs and rates of learning.  Students work collaboratively with teachers, are actively involved and take responsibility for their own learning.

Papamoa College is an exciting place to learn.  

We look forward to the opportunity to partner with you to create a school culture where your child develops to be a successful learner for life. 

Regards

Steve Lindsey
Principal
