Wanganui Collegiate School offers all its students the opportunity to pursue a first class education with particular regard for the Special Character of the School.
That we work to the best of our ability and effort to learn and grow from children of promise to young adults of character.
The values statement identifies what we believe to be the important qualities for our community:
vitality, compassion, courage
energy, Christian ethos, disciplined challenges
Wanganui Collegiate School provides a first-class education for both boys and girls, day pupils and boarders. The Christian values upon which the school was founded have never been more important than they are today, and they form the bedrock of the School’s ethos. The five pillars are the firm foundation of a Wanganui Collegiate student. This is who we are and what we aim to be, on a daily basis.
