With the end of 2017 and the start of 2018, the school has identified a number of areas where progress can be achieved, which will lead to an overall lifting of school culture. These include some communications that will be sent out over the coming weeks and early next year regarding the new school uniform for Year 9 students in 2018, school rules for all students, and overall expectations and standards for all Glenfield College students. Glenfield College will epitomize our school motto of “With Pride and Respect.”
Glenfield College’s motto is “With Pride and Respect,” Mā Maruwehi, Ka Rāhiri. There is a requirement that all students wear their uniform with pride. That means wearing the uniform correctly at all times. Students are expected to maintain high standards of personal presentation. The school requires the correct uniform to be worn, in the correct manner, when students are at school, to and from school, and while attending functions away from school.

- Black leather sandals are optional. No socks are to be worn with sandals. Sandals are not to be worn with long trousers

We require all students to arrive promptly for the start of each school day, which commences at 8.40am on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays & Fridays and 9am on Wednesdays.
If any student arrives late they must report to the Student Centre to sign in and receive a pass. Students will not be permitted into class late without a pass.
We appreciate your support with the items listed above, as we work towards the raising of standards and expectations of our students as we prepare them for life outside of school.
