Flaxmere College prides itself on being a friendly, supportive, safe and caring school that provides a positive environment in which students can learn.
Each student receives individual care and attention that encourages them to value themselves and value others.  We promote personal and school pride and we base our relationships on mutual respect.
Students have a wide range of people who are there to support them.  We have a well structured pastoral care system based on form classes.  The Head of Year are the first points of contact.  We offer learning support and we have our own attendance workers who support students in getting to school.

Guidance Counsellor/Social Worker
There are always times in one's life when things do not work out the way one would like them to.  In times of concern, confusion or worry, it helps to talk to someone else.  Our staff are trained to help students cope with a wide range of issues.  They have the time to sit down with a student or parent, really listen and confidentiality is ensured. 

The College has an onsite social worker who comes to us in partnership with DOVE Hawkes Bay.  She is happy to make home visits and assist both families and students.
