March 27, 2020
Several students have been in contact with questions or concerns about NCEA assessments in light of school closures and ‘Learning @ Home’.
We are closely monitoring and following the advice and guidelines we have been receiving from the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA)
Correspondence from NZQA on 26 March indicated that NZQA staff and contractors are currently preparing material to support all schools through the days ahead. By the time the holidays end on April 14 we should have more specific guidance from NZQA about managing our assessment programmes for the remainder of the year. In the meantime, please be assured that we are working closely with NZQA to equip ourselves for offering credible remote assessment opportunities if necessary and flexible approaches to assessment for all our students which will enable them to complete their NCEA qualifications in 2020 as planned.
We will post most information on this page as it becomes available.
