"All through Christ" - School Motto
Established in 1978, Chanel College is a school with a tradition of Excellence. Catering for students from year 7 to year 13.
Situated in Masterton, at the heart of the Wairarapa, Chanel College is easily accessible to all students in the area and is about to undergo a science laboratory up-grade. The upgrade will begin in mid-April with a competion date towards the end of term two.
Another exciting project is due to start in term two and that is the construciton of the schools gymnasium. It is set for completion during term four and is a long awaited but much needed resource.
The core subjects are taught at all levels and a wide variety of optional subjects are available. Students are prepared for National Examinations and the College is accredited to provide Unit Standards for the National Qualifications Framework.
The aim of all education at Chanel is to develop potential and educate the ‘whole person’ according to the student’s abilities and needs.
The College seeks to build and develop a warm and caring community spirit among its students, staff, Board of Trustees, parents, former students and the wider Catholic community. This embraces the idea of a special concern for the less favoured.
