Welcome to the Languages Faculty. In our faculty we teach 5 different languages – Te Reo Maori, Samoan, German, Japanese and Mandarin. All languages are offered up to NCEA Level 3.
We have a strong focus on community languages and in 2017 we introduced bilingual classes in year 9 and year 10 for Te Reo Maori and Samoan.
Other Languages like French, Spanish, Korean, Tongan, can be taken in the Senior School where there is a strong interest or family background in the language. These courses can be taken via Harbournet which is a video conferencing learning platform.
Our ESOL and EAP programmes cater for the many and varied educational needs of students from a variety of ethnic backgrounds.
