A welcome from our Principal.

We recently adopted a school whakatauki that states that success is not due to the work of one person but is a result of the work of many people.

ross preeceAs the largest secondary school in the region we aim to provide for the varied range of needs of all our pupils.  Our school reflects the increasing diversity of our mid Canterbury community.
Ashburton College is in a privileged position to meet the aspirations of the wider Ashburton area.  We offer an enormous range of academic and vocational courses  with an increasing emphasis on maximising the numerous employment opportunities that are available in our region. We also have an enormous list of sporting and cultural activities on offer. These activities often lead to involvement at a regional or national level. This involvement in activities outside of the classroom often leads to lifelong memories.

The focus for our college is on altering our curriculum and structures to meet the future needs of our learners. Whilst the basics of Literacy and Numeracy will always be important there is a whole new set of skills and dispositions that are required by our future graduates. Society will need people who are creative problem solvers who are effective communicators and they can work collaboratively  Future workers will need to be resilient and creative thinkers. Our college recognises that we need to change our current courses to meet our learners future needs.  We look forward to supporting your child with their future.
