Welcome to Paeroa College
Welcome to the most innovative, exciting and proud school in the heart of Hauraki.
We have excellence in our achievement. In 2016 we were in the top four highest achieving high schools in our decile with 100% of our students achieving NCEA Level 1 and 97% of our students achieving NCEA Level 2. We have an amazing curriculum which places the student at the centre of the learning every time.
Our junior school features a unique, purpose built environment designed to give the students the very best opportunities to learn. We have excellent technology, arts, drama and music facilities. We have innovative programmes including our nationally recognised Te ara Tapu a Tane boys group. As well as a more traditional curriculum we offer classes in coding, video game creation and journalism. Our Academy programme includes opportunities to create new ice cream, experience outdoor education across the region and engage in an extremely well developed work experience programme.
We have amazing sporting success. In 2017 we are the Coulter Cup holders - the best first XV in the Thames Valley as well as winning the fourth grade competition. Our netball teams are winning finalists at two seperate age grades and we also have very successful boys and girls football teams, hockey teams, golf and chess teams. Three of our four basketball teams made the final this year with our Junior girls taking the trophy. Finally, we have the 2nd best Touch team in the country coached by a internationally recognised referee.
We love being a part of Paeroa with opportunities for community service throughout our school. In return, the community supported almost a quarter of our school to visit Australia this year as part of an international sporting tournament.
We are a small school. We have a big heart. We are proud of Paeroa. We are proud of Paeroa College. We believe in Excellence in Everything.
I look forward to meeting you and showing you around our amazing school.
