Whānau Survey 2022 — Have your say
Today we have emailed all whānu to invite you to share your thoughts about how well we are supporting your student/s in this year’s Whānau Survey.
The survey focuses on the school’s WERO values (Whānau, Excellence, Respect and Ora) and the questions reflect these values while also linking to our strategic plan.
Thank you in advance for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. As always, if you have any specific questions or concerns about how we are supporting your young person/s, please contact the rōpū teacher or Dean directly: https://www.whs.school.nz/contact/.
Reports available on the Parent Portal
Term 1 reports are available for download from the Parent Portal. Once you have logged in, to find your student’s report go to Results > Reports.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Last Day to Order ID Cards
The last day to order and pay for ID cards for Term 1 is Tuesday, 5th April. Any orders or payments after this date will not be ready until beginning of Term 2.
- Standard ID cards cost $10
- Snapper ID cards cost $25
To order a student ID card email email@example.com including your student’s name, rōpū and school ID number (if known). A payment will be added to your account and can be paid through the Student Portal. The ID card will be ordered once payment has been received. IDs arrive 5-10 working days following receipt of payment and will be given to your student’s rōpū teacher for distribution.
ID cards include the student’s legal first and last names and their date of birth. If a student’s preferred first name is different from their legal first name, this can be included in addition to (but not instead of) their legal name.
Our senior students went Ten Pin Bowling with the Year 13 Outdoor Education Class this week.

Furniture and Cabinet Making classes enable students to learn how to use industrial power tools and a number of He Kākano students are supported in the workshop.
