The NZPPTA, the secondary teachers’ union, will be holding a Paid Union Meeting on Tuesday 25th June for teachers to discuss and vote on the latest round of pay negotiations with the government (time to meet is provided under the provisions of the Teachers’ Collective Agreement).
For Hagley College students, this means that school will close at 12pm on Tuesday 25 June. Regular classes will run from 8:30am until 12pm on Tuesday, and After 3 classes will run as usual in the evening.
We realise this may be inconvenient for many parents and caregivers and we thank you for your understanding. We will provide supervision for any students whose parents or caregivers are unable to find alternative care for that afternoon. Students will need to go to the Library from 12pm for supervision.

Nau mai, haere mai ki Te Puna Wai o Waipapa. Welcome to Hagley!
Ko Waipapa te ingoa tahito o tēnei wāhi; i aua wā ka haere mai te tangata whenua ki konei tiki ai i te wai o ngā tini puna. He tika anō te ingoa o Te Puna Wai o Waipapa mō te kura inā hoki i ēnei rā ka haere mai ngā tini tāngata ki te kura nei tiki mātauranga kē ai. Nā Ngāi Tahu tonu tēnei ingoa i takoha mai, i runga i tēnei kōrero.
Ko te koru te tino tohu o te kura, me te whakatauākī “Ka puāwai te koru, ka puāwai te tangata”; haere mai hei pītau, haere atu hei tangata e tū ana.
Hagley’s an exciting place. We have a culture like no other. No-one wears a uniform and everyone’s on a first name basis. But that’s just for starters. Students choose Hagley because they’re treated with respect, accepted for who they are as unique individuals. Our students know that it’s cool to be different and they celebrate that in a dynamic environment.
Our students choose Hagley because of the huge range of opportunities and unique programmes on offer. We’re no ordinary secondary school. You can design your own programme from the different and diverse subjects available, or choose one of our tertiary pathways or specialist courses to take the step into tertiary study or your career pathway.
Our students aim high and do well. We believe there is no single stereotype for success. At Hagley, being successful comes in many shapes and forms.
We live by our vision statement: lifelong learning that’s accessible to all. Join us and discover for yourself what we mean by inspiring students’ futures and transforming their lives. That’s what Hagley can be for you – a place that opens up opportunities that are right for you.
Ka puāwai te koru, ka puāwai te tangata. The koru is the main symbol of our school, with the proverb “As the koru unfurls, so to does the person”; our students arrive as young ferns and leave standing tall.
