Pāpāmoa College, Student Gateway Program
We believe to be an effective learner students need to be active in determining their learning journey.
Students develop the skills to make decisions about their learning and are expected to conduct themselves and achieve at the highest possible levels.
Both knowledge and application skills are combined within an environment that promotes learning through a process of inquiry. In simple terms this means students learn through doing, creating and communicating.
Learning experiences coupled with the wide range of opportunities that a busy campus offers, helps to develop well rounded individuals.
Growing good people
There is an emphasis on promoting, learning and living the values that contribute to growing good citizens.
Service to others and a sense of community, is reinforced through the school culture and within the school wide Citizenship programme.
Our focus is to not only create students that are competent academically, on the sports field and in the arts and culture arenas, but also to be valuable contributing members of society.
