Small Community, Big Spirit

"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. In October 2013 a science laboratory up-grade was completed. What a wonderful asset these laboratories are to the College.

Another exciting project started in Term 4, 2013 and that is the construction of the schools' gymnasium. It is set for completion during Term 4 2014 and is a long awaited but much needed resource.

The College netball courts were re-surfaced during the October 2013 break with artifical turf. This will enable a wider range of sports to access this facility.  

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.
