CONNECTION

We want all learners to feel a sense of belonging in our school and to our whanau. There is a very strong connection between whanau and learning. Our Year 9 and 10 learners primarily learn in whanau-based groupings, with the majority of their learning leaders also being from the same whanau.

CONFIDENCE

Alfriston College celebrates the achievements of our learners in many ways. Whanau have celebration assemblies each term to acknowledge the accomplishments of their learners in the four dimensions of: Academic,Community,Culture, Sport

COMPETENCE

Alfriston College runs 90 minute learning periods. This means that most learners have Whanau-based Learning Advisory (in Hapu with an Amokura) and three classes per day. 90 minute lessons allow for more in depth and uninterrupted learning to occur.

CHARACTER

Each of the five Whānau provides an effective environment for learning and growth, social interaction, leadership opportunities and mutual support while also maintaining a unique culture of its own through its colours, mottos, flags and traditions.

Football Junior Boys: Following the team's 15 - 1 win over Waiuku College last week, the AC Junior Boys' footballers prevailed 5 - 2 against a very strong Strathallan team. The boys went down 1 nil early in the game and then fought back to 1 all with a Mehar strike only to concede the lead immediately and go into the break 2 - 1 down. In the second half, AC took their scoring opportunities well and goals from Andrew (2), Marion and Player of the Day, Sidhesh, sealed the win. The skill level was extremely high and both teams competed with passion and in the spirit of fair play. Coach, Keith Mackay, said this was the team's best performance of the season and pointed to commitment, passing and position play as the keys to victory. ... See MoreSee Less
