Porirua College

Whiti Te Ra - The Rising Sun


We have a target of reducing absenteeism to 10% or less for all absences; explained or unexplained.

Our Student Management System will send text messages to parents/caregivers of students who are marked absent for morning Learning Coach, Period 1 and/or Period 2. Text messages are sent at 12.30pm each day.

It is important that we have the correct contact details so if you are unsure, please telephone the office on 237-5465 and we will check this for you. Please continue to ring us if your child is away and then confirm their absence with a note in their student diary for when they come back to school. It really helps to do this!
