Welcome to Waiopehu College where our Mission Statement is "Waiopehu College, through active partnership with the community, will provide quality education, respecting the dignity and rights of all students, and enabling them to attain the knowledge and skills required to reach their full potential".
Our Charter places an emphasis on a range of skills needed by the modern learner. Central to these is literacy. "Teachers successfully promote students' literacy through a focused approach to improving specific skills. An enthusiastic literacy team models teaching strategies and provides support with resources and planning. Many teachers regularly use a variety of strategies within lessons. The learning needs of students requiring support are effectively identified and catered for. A range of processes ensures that parents and students have opportunities to contribute to developing appropriate goals and programmes." (Education Review Report November 2008)
At Waiopehu College, academic learning is of the utmost importance. Learning also takes place in a variety of contexts and settings as you will see from the pages of this web site. Our inclusive school culture encourages students to participate and achieve in a range of activities. Students work in a positive and respectful environment, and graduate from College well-equipped to succeed in modern society in whatever career they choose.
