PPTA Paid Union Meeting 1:30pm-3pm Friday 24th May

All PPTA members are invited to attend an offsite meeting on Friday. For this reason Year 9-13 students will not have all their usual teachers at school. Therefore Period 5 on Friday will be “supervision only” and not a full teaching session. Buses will leave at the usual time.

Parents are welcome to collect their children at lunchtime (1:20-2pm) otherwise supervision will be provided until the end of the day. Please make sure you sign them out at the office.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.


Excellere College

Welcome to Excellere College

We are excited to be part of God’s purpose for Whangārei, and Northland. Our College vision, Excellence in learning; Christianity in living, provides the benchmark for our purpose. It clearly states the goal we have for our learning community.

Excellere College bases its learning journey around four major areas. These four aspects provide a foundation for all our learning decisions and development:

  • The Promise: To develop a sense of God’s purpose for our lives.
  • Relationship: To develop a sense of God’s love for us.
  • Guidance: To develop a sense of God’s plan through history.
  • Wisdom: To develop a sense of God’s Grace.

We have an unrelenting focus on student learning, which sees us exploring 21st century learning, constantly improving our use of formative evidence to inform teaching practice, seeking to grow the positive partnership we already have with parents, and embedding student voice and agency into our learning culture. We have developed a Student Graduate Profile which provides purpose and direction amongst students, parents and staff.

We exist in a wonderful semi-rural setting, surrounded by God’s creation and invite you to consider Excellere College as your school of choice. We have an exciting Twenty Year Plan that sees our school become a Christian facility that will cater for over 1000 students.

We currently have some vacancies for further student enrolments so please make contact with the office to see if our Christian school is right for you and your family.

Yours in Christ
