Principal's Message

Nau Mai Haere Mai

Onslow College takes great pride in delivering the best possible educational opportunities for its students.

We believe every student can achieve academic success and have an extensive pastoral care network to help them achieve to their potential. A strong partnership with home is a key ingredient in this goal and we both value and encourage parents and families to take an active interest in their child's achievements at school. Working together we can help our young people develop their individual strengths and identities and build the confidence to be able to contribute to society.
