JUNIOR SCHOOL

YEAR 7 & 8:

Students in Year 7 & 8 classes have a Homeroom Teacher for English, Mathematics, Social Studies and Health. This means that students will spend between 15- and 20 hours (out of 25) with their Homeroom teachers. The Homeroom environment is a stable one, allowing students to work within familiar routines and in a classroom which they can call their own.

COMMUNICATION

As part of the College’s focus on improving learning partnerships the Year 7 homerooms use the SeeSaw app. Your child will have his or her own learning journal, and you can get notified when your child adds new items.

All students at Bream Bay College are expected to have a device. A Chrome Book is fine for year 7 students. These will be used in all classes.

As part of the College’s focus on improving communication parents will be able to communicate with all staff at the College via email or telephone. To email a teacher, please send the message to initialsurname@breambaycollege.school.nz. To leave a phone message please phone 4328226.

Students are offered many opportunities and we encourage our students to become as involved as possible.All students are encouraged to take an active role in all activities eg bands- music, swimming, athletics, Te Tuinga, Student Council, Library, Debating, Kapahaka and Sports Exchanges.
