Junior College  |  Years 7 – 10

Students in our Junior College are expected to strive for personal excellence in all areas of their school life.  We have high expectations for both work and behaviour. Teachers support the students but also challenge them to reach their potential. We value our parents and the help that they provide their children at home.

Huanui Junior College’s programme is designed to meet the needs of our developing young people and is preparing them for their Senior College years.  The Junior College has a passionate group of teachers who enjoy working with this age group.

Specialist teachers facilitate learning in all subject areas.  Form teachers cater to the pastoral care of the students.  Our small class sizes provide excellent teacher-student ratios and enhances learning opportunities.

Learning support programmes are provided to support the literacy and numeracy needs of students. Individualised learning programmes are developed for these students to ensure their needs are catered for. Likewise, gifted and talented students are catered for by programmes designed to extend and challenge.  These are often extra programmes of interest developed by specialist teachers.

Please note that extra subjects may vary from year to year depending on student demand and teacher availability.
