New Zealand Academic Calendar 

The New Zealand Academic year runs from February to December and is divided into four terms of around ten weeks each. Between each term there is a two week holiday, which is a great time for international students to travel around New Zealand. Classes at Rangitoto College are from Monday to Friday from 8:45am until 3:15pm. Students may participate in sports and other co-curricular activities at lunchtime, after school or at weekends.

Bring Your Own Device 

Rangitoto College has a Bring Your Own Device system, where students need a laptop to be able to do some of the classwork and submit some of the homework.  It is important for international students to be able to complete the school work and participate effectively in group projects so it is important to understand this requirement. 

  • In 2016, Year 9, 10 and 11 students need a laptop.
  • In 2017, Year 9, 10, 11 and 12 students need a laptop.
