Wednesday 24 January 9.00-2.30pm Thursday 25 January 9.00-2.30pm. It is essential that all Y12-13 students attend on either of these days to meet with their dean and confirm their course for the year. Come early to beat the queues. Students must bring their NZQA results slip. Y11 students will be contacted by their dean if they need to come in to confirm courses.
It is important that you get your sports registration form in quickly so that our sports department can enter teams into the various College Sport Wellington competitions by the closing dates. Use the quick links below which will take you to the online registration forms.
