Vision and Values

Whangaparāoa College sits at the centre of the Whangaparāoa community, supporting and being supported by our local environment but connected to the world through digital technology. 

Through our Mindfulness and Hauora programmes we instill a sense of belonging and self belief in our learners allowing them to be self driven, critical thinkers and able to identify opportunities.

Our curriculum and pathway support enables our learners to achieve their personal goals and become outstanding members of the wider community.

  • Embrace our unique identity
  • Connect with whānau and our community
  • Strive for continual growth and critical awareness
  • Believe in the potential of self, of others, of our kura
