Week One at Rolleston College.
Week 1 begins Tues 30th January with a Mihi Whakatau welcome for learners at 8.50am. We will gather in the auditorium. This week will be a full week with school starting at 8:50am and finishing at 3pm everyday, except for Wednesday when we will finish at 2:20pm. All learners will be in whānau for the first week of the year. Wednesday afternoon will be ‘Top Team’ in the afternoon so learners must bring PE gear.
All learners will receive their Term 1 timetable during the first week of school.
A full list of stationery is available on our website.
Technology & Devices.
Learners are encouraged to have their preferred device for use at school. All devices need the ability to run a web browser for Google Apps and other learning resources. 2GB RAM, 7” minimum screen size, 5-6 hours battery life and wireless network capability. We are recommending a Chromebook for most class use. Part of the learning programme offered will cover digital citizenship and cybersafety. Please ensure you have a carry case and appropriate size school bag for the safe transport of the device. Devices are a key tool for learning and are the responsibility of the learner.
Culture, Arts & Sports.
All sports teams and extracurricular activities will be advertised and available in 2018 in response to student need.

Transport for rural learners – School Transport who work with the Ministry of Education are responsible for providing schools with bus services or resourcing. As a rule, to be eligible for assistance, learners need to be in zone and living beyond a 4.8km radius of our school. For learners who are in zone and within the 4.8km radius no paid transport service will be provided. Existing buses will continue for 2018 and there are no new bus routes.
Please note that the college is keeping to its enrolment scheme. Check the website for clarification as we are not accepting out of zone enrolments.
Ako Learning Coach.
Each Ako Learning Coach will have 18-20 students in 2018 and the coach will remain with them throughout their time at the college, where possible. Learners will be in the same whānau while at school.
Lockers will be allocated for learners on the first day. It is recommended that learners bring a 4 number combination lock to keep their belongings secure.
