Kaipara korero | From the Kaipara College Principal’s Desk:

As you are aware, this year is the centenary year of Kaipara College (previously Helensville District High School), having collectively been involved in educating local rangatahi for 100 years.

School alumni play an important role in the life of a school. They are the backbone of any educational institution, representing a legacy of success, knowledge, and community. Their contributions can extend far beyond finishing College, shaping the future of their previous school and society at large. One of the most significant virtues of school alumni lies in their ability to form robust networks that foster collaboration, mentorship, and professional growth. Alumni networks provide a platform for current students to connect with experienced professionals in various fields, opening doors to internships, job opportunities, and valuable insights. These connections not only benefit individuals but also strengthen the reputation and influence of the school as a whole.

We would love to have alumni actively participate in school, sharing their expertise and experiences with current students. By staying involved in educational initiatives, alumni can contribute to a culture of continuous learning and innovation that drives academic excellence. Through their generosity, alumni can leave a lasting impact on their school and create opportunities for aspiring young people to thrive.

Alumni can also serve as mentors and role models for our current students to support them to navigate their academic and professional journeys. By sharing their career paths, challenges faced, and lessons learned along the way, alumni inspire younger generations to pursue their goals with determination and resilience. Ultimately, school alumni contribute to building a legacy of excellence that transcends generations. Their achievements reflect the quality of education provided by the school and inspire others to strive for greatness.

Some of our passionate alumni are involved in making the Kaipara College Centenary Celebration one to remember. If you are Kaipara College alumni (or know someone who is), please get involved, either in assisting with the organisation, attending the event or just connecting with Kaipara College. Without alumni there is no event! For more information or to make contact please visit the News & Events page of our website www.kaipara.school.nz We would also like to make a special request for interviews with our ex-students so that we can share your “Where are they now?” stories with our alumni and school community via channels such as newsletters, our website, and social media. To share your story with us, or read other alumni stories, please head to our website and click on Alumni Hub.
