About Us

 

Kia ora koutou and welcome to our college.  Choosing the right school is a very important decision and I invite you to visit Aparima College and discover why we are so proud of our school.

We have the small school advantage where our staff know each student well and recognise their individual character and needs, but is large enough to offer a varied curriculum that meets the academic and vocational needs of our students.

Our educational programme is delivered within a caring and supportive environment by our dedicated and professional staff, where the emphasis is placed on positive relationships.  We offer exciting and vibrant opportunities for students both in and beyond the classroom.

Above all, the success of our students reflects the commitment of the students themselves and the commitment of our staff, parents and community who inspire, encourage, guide and support our students to achieve their best.
