Student Network Accounts and Network Access:
Whether you are new to the school or returning, you will need to sign your Network Agreement. Once your Data Use Agreement is signed, you will have personal access to the Internet and other services.

New to the School (or never had a Network Account):
This is where you sign up for a new network account. To complete the process, you will need to know your home phone number or a contact number for M
um, Dad or a caregiver.

Returning to the school:
This is where you sign your Data Use Agreement for the year and re-activate your account

Lost your password?

Your password is extremely important because it gives you
  • Access to any school computer
  • Internet
  • File storage
  • Printing
  • Email
  • School Calendar
Soon it will give you access to personal information such as your school reports, NCEA and Cambridge progress, and much more. 

It would be dangerous to let your password fall into other hands. 


You should change your password on a regular basis. You'll see this under the "Home" menu.

If you have lost your password, your subject teacher may be able to help. Otherwise you can visit the library and ask for help from a librarian. 

Remember to always be aware of the Network rules and follow them, otherwise you run a risk of loosing your network account for a time

Your smart device

 We encourage you to bring a smart device to school to use in class. Smart devices include laptops, tablets and phones. There are some important rules about using smart devices:
Phones are never permitted to be used in class but smart devices can be used sometimes. This means that phones can never be used to make phone calls or to send texts while you are in the classroom.

However, If and only if, your teachers says "this is a smart lesson" or "this is a smart activity", you can use your smart device to access educational material for the lesson. 

If you use your smart device outside of those times, you may loose access to the Internet or loose your account for a period of time.

Accessing the school site from home:
The school Intranet can be accessed from home as easily as it can be from school. 

Student file storage and file quotas:
In N: drive, DocsForMe is provided for you to keep your school documents. We provide as much space as you need on the understanding that you only store documents for school and you use common sense. If you store files for entertainment, we may impose a permanent quota of 50MB.
