We endeavour to communicate as effectively and efficiently as possible in regard to all school matters. Please ensure you read all newsletters, notes home and check the website regularly to keep up to date with any information you may need to know. Please also check our official Facebook page. The name of the page is Coromandel Area School, so please ‘like’ and ‘follow’ us on the page to get instant and up to date information, photographs and updates on school achievements.

This page will show all 'flyers' and 'notices' that go home during the school day (that often get stuck at the bottom of school bags or rubbish bins).

We are signing up to a new product called 'Career Central' that delivers career education through an online platform. This is currently being used by over 100,000 NZ school students, and we will initially be rolling this out next Term to all Year 9 to 13 students.

Career Central makes it possible for students to take ownership of their career plan and for parents & caregivers to be empowered to have career conversations with their child(ren). Students, parents and teachers will have 24/7 access on any device to this service. Our Careers Coordinator will use this platform to manage student pathways.

In signing up to this service, Career Central will be receiving information about our students. This information is what is stored in our current student information system, and will be under the same privacy policy as that system. If you have any questions, or would like to opt out, then please contact our school's privacy officer by emailing principal@coroarea.school.nz.

If you can describe what you are missing, and tell us the size, then you can claim it.
