Students entered into internal or external NCEA standards must pay NZQA fees every year to have their results recorded on their Record of Achievement, and to receive certificates.

There is a separate fee structure for domestic students and international students. Financial assistance is available for domestic students to help with the payment of entry fees. Financial assistance is not available to international fee-paying students. Families who meet the financial assistance criteria based on income, benefit or multiple-candidate applications will have their fees reduced. This fee will cover all NCEA and New Zealand Scholarship examinations.

The NZQA fee structure remains largely unchanged to previous years. However, a couple of years ago there was a change for students who are considering doing New Zealand Scholarship exams and are not eligible for financial assistance. Each Scholarship exam now incurs a $30 fee in addition to the $76.70 NCEA assessment fee.

Year 10 Camps 2018

Year 10 Camps will run during Week 7 of Term 4 (26 November - 30 November 2018). These camps give students the chance to experience new things that cannot be taught in the classroom environment. Students who participate in these camps come back with stories of overcoming challenges, working co-operatively and having heaps of fun.

Camps are run in groups of up to 30 people and the students select the camp that appeals most. Please note that at times students may not always get their first choice. Camp choice forms have been issued to Year 10 students. Students must return these forms by Friday 1 June. 

These camps range in price but can cost as much as $500. As this is a costly exercise, particularly so close to Christmas, we can set up automatic payments anytime to help budget for this. Forms are available at the office. Alternatively, you can contribute to your student’s camp fund at any time by making a small payment at the school office or online via the Portal. 

A copy of the camp letter and choice form can be downloaded here.
