Key Start Dates

2023 Open Evening


We were thrilled to welcome nearly 400 visitors to the college on Monday, 4 July for our 2023 Open Evening. There was a wonderful hum of activity and excitement through the classrooms as prospective students and their whānau watched demonstrations, spoke with teaching staff and chatted with current students. Our team of Student Ambassadors proudly showed off their school, whilst sharing their own experiences with the families.

We thoroughly enjoyed meeting these rangitahi from throughout our wider community and look forward to welcoming them to Kaipara College in 2023!
