Tutor Teacher
•   Every student is in a Tutor Class. The Tutor Teacher is the student’s most effective personal contact and will be the first
    person a student turns to for help and advice.
•   The Tutor Teacher will have regular conversations and give guidance and support to the students to help them achieve
    to their potential.
•   All Year 9 students participate in a Peer Mentor Programme where Year 12 students mentor Year 9 students. The
    senior students are an integral part of ensuring a smooth transition for your daughter into Auckland Girls’ Grammar
    School
•   There is Tutor Time every day (except Wednesday) from 12.20pm-12.50pm.
    This time will be used for assemblies, either Year 9 assemblies or Junior Assemblies. These are held in the Dorothy
    Winstone Centre (DWC).

REPORTS
Progress reports are emailed home twice a term with an update on academic progress. Parents and whānau are also
invited to discuss progress at scheduled group learning conversations. You will receive information about this date closer
to the time.

KAMAR
KAMAR is our Student Management system, providing real-time access to student’s information. KAMAR allows parents to
view student information, caregiver details, pastoral, attendance, finance, daily notices, calendar, results and reports
In term one you will be sent information on how to access the KAMAR parent portal.
DEVICES
We highly recommend that all students have a suitable device such as a Chrome book or Laptop to use in class. Activities in
class will often involve use of a device to keep notes, collaborate and access online resources. There are a wide range of
advantages to students bringing their own devices to use in class. Most obviously, online access allows students to connect
with an unlimited selection of resources.

Student Services
The student services team provide health and well-being support to students with health, social, emotional and
behavioural issues that could impact on a student’s learning.

HEALTH CENTRE
The Health Centre offers a confidential service to students Mon - Fri 8am - 4pm.

• If a student is unwell and needs to leave class to see a nurse, the teacher will fill out a green slip and send the student
    to the Health Clinic.
• The green slip will be signed by the nurse that saw the student. She will give this to her teacher on her return to class.
• If the Health Clinic is closed, the student can go to the office.
• If the student needs to go home, one of the Health Team will contact parents.

COUNSELLING AND SOCIAL WORK
The Counselling Centre aims to positively impact the well being of students by building resilience and connectedness for
learning. This includes providing confidential support and referral for a range of emotional, social or behavioural needs
(e.g. mental health, family stress, academic stress, change, loss and grief, friends and relationships, sexuality and identity,
drugs and alcohol, anger management and parenting support).
The SWIS (Social Worker in Schools) is able to work with students and their families/whānau to help protect vulnerable
students and develop plans to improve student safety, wellbeing and educational goals. By supporting families with the
educational journey while at Auckland Girls’ Grammar school we are able to achieve better outcomes for students.
Students can self-refer directly at the Counselling Centre or by email. Staff and parents can refer in person, by phone or
via email. Teachers, at times, will also refer concerns directly to the Counselling Centre.

LEARNING CENTRE
The focus of the Learning Centre is to provide comprehensive wrap-around learning support for all students who are
identified to be struggling with the academic pressures of College life. In doing this we are very conscious that the families
of our students are fully involved and consulted in this process. It is paramount to us that we plus - your family, student,
subject teachers and dean work together to find the best possible solution, initiatives and way forward.
Our key tasks include the following
 • Transition new students with special needs
 • Design, implement and monitor individual programmes (IEP's) for students where appropriate.
 • Providing information and support to teachers who have identified students who require our assistance
•    Liaising with outside agencies and Resource Teachers Learning and Behaviour (RTLB's) to maximise the best possible
     learning strategies and outcomes for our students
•    Organise work experience and tertiary employment advice for students with special needs and/ or learning challenges
•    Identify and organise special examination conditions (SAC's) for students who may require a reader, writer or
     separate accommodation etc.

bring.
