2018 NZQA Examination Fees
The School cannot accept any further payments for NZQA. Payments outstanding will now be payable to NZQA directly.
The quickest and easiest way for candidates to pay NZQA directly is to log in to the NZQA website and pay their 2018 fees online using their Learner Login. If this is not possible, candidates can complete the School Candidate Form – Payment of NZQA Fees and make a manual payment. Relevant details are provided on the form.
Late Fees and Reminders
Any NCEA and New Zealand Scholarship payments made after 1 December 2018 may incur a late fee of $50.00.

NCEA Review 2018
The government has released an NCEA Review discussion document which is open for public consultation and feedback. As a parent and community, your voice is important to us.
The NCEA Advisory Group has put out a number of resources to inform interested parties about what is going on. The fact sheet entitled ‘What the NCEA Review means for your family and whānau’ can be found by following the link or is downloadable as a PDF.
There are a number of ways for you to have as say on the review including completing a quick survey online, a more detailed survey about the ‘Six Big Opportunities’ or through public workshops. You can have your say here.
As a school, we will be providing opportunities in Term 3 for you to get involved and have a say in the future of NCEA as well as contributing to our school’s detailed submission.
