Our Senior Pastoral team are excited to be working with our Senior students in 2023.
The Senior Pastoral Team is passionate about ensuring that your child is safe, connected and engaged at school, and is supported to work purposefully towards academic and personal goals for the year. The team has high expectations for each and every student and will focus on getting the basics right from the start of the year: attendance, punctuality, uniform, gear and work routines; please support them in sharing these expectations for your child.
This team will also be responsible for the Whanau Ako classes - these are small pastoral classes which will meet every day and have an extended lesson every week to complete a programme of pastoral care, learning strategies and academic mentoring. The Whanau Ako teacher will be the significant adult for your child at Trident and will want to develop the key relationship with your student and you, their whanau, to support all their pastoral and academic needs.
All students study the core subjects of English, science and mathematics.
Trident offers NCEA Levels 1, 2 and 3, as well as comprehensive alternative vocational programmes in the form of Landskills, Service Academy, Futures Academy, and the Gateway Programme. All are placed on Vocational Pathways to guide students in their subject selection towards qualification and smart career choices.
