Enrolment Information

An important task for parents/caregivers is to choose the secondary school that is well suited for their daughter/son. To help you make this important decision you are invited to visit Hato Petera College to view the facilities, and gain an insight of the opportunities we have to offer students.

Take the opportunity to meet and talk to the students, staff and the principal about:

  • our special character
  • features of our curriculum that recognize the special interests of our tauira
  • opportunities in sport and culture
  • learning environment
  • our pastoral care programme

Hato Petera College has a proud history of developing young leaders with a focus on excellence. Whether this is academic, sports, arts or spiritual, we believe that the discipline and balance of our school brings out the best in our rangatahi.

Religious Instruction

Religious instruction at Hato Petera is not only incorporated into the daily programme but is a living thing which is shared in our everyday life. Chapel service and/or prayers, in which both staff and students participate, are held daily. We practice the Catholic faith and uphold our Catholic Values

Extra-curricular Activities

All students are expected to participate in the extra-curricular activities of the College, including Saturday morning sport.  Students enjoy the healthy atmosphere of life in the country and take advantage of the recreational opportunities available on the College’s adjacent farm. They enjoy cross-country, hiking and fitness runs on the hills of the farm. All students have supervised study Mon - Thurs from 7.30pm-8.30 pm.
