Student Support

Tautoko ākonga

Student Support at William Colenso College is holistic with student needs at the centre of all we do. We work alongside whānau on wellbeing, health, behaviour and learning for their rangatahi. Student Support works in a collaborative and inclusive way with students, whānau, deans, teachers and SLT (Senior Leadership Team). 

William Colenso College strives to ensure that students are engaged and able to achieve through being present, learning and belonging. Our team works towards reducing the barriers for the students and their education. 

Rangatahi, whānau and teachers are always welcome to come into Student Support to discuss potential support.

With a focus on Inclusion, Student Support ensures all learners are able to engage in learning that meets their individual needs/pathways and encourages success. We have a number of students with Specific Learning Differences and we have a strength based approach to working alongside these students and supporting them in the classroom as well as in Te Whānau Ora.
