Porirua & City Alt School

Building Resilient Young People



Camp 2021

It is always important to celebrate our young people who transition from us. As we celebrate the growth and development we have witnessed in each other we reflect on the strength of connectedness and quality relationships. This makes it so much harder to see our young people move on! Once you join the whanau, you are always whanau and always welcome.

Exciting New Update

We welcome 3 new champion youth workers into our Alternative School space.

Together we planned how we can finish the year strong and start next year even stronger!

Help Us Celebrate!

A massive shout out to our intern staff members for graduating:

Dani with his Certificate in Youth Development.

Nella and Talita completed their first year and going into diploma next year.

Nat with his diploma of Youth Development.

Gee with his Bachelor in Youth Development.

We are so proud of the blood, sweat, and tears you have poured into enhancing the mana of our rangatahi and Kura. Mihi also to your support villages and those who joined the journey and are no longer with us! We honestly appreciate you all much!


Porirua Alt Exhibit

Today our students got to share the journey they have been on this term with Zeal through an exhibition of photos. 

It was a special moment shared with whānau and friends.
