Winter uniform – it is time to rug up!

Wed May 11 04:48pm

Last year we put in our amazing new pellet boiler system, and we are currently preparing it for use this winter. It will be on in the next few days. 

In the meantime, acceptable winter uniform includes wearing black thermals under the school shirt, the black school jersey (available from school) and the black school jacket (old version or new, available from The Warehouse). If you have any issues with affording uniform, please see Mr. Jackson. 

The forecast is a few nice sunny days but rug up warm (you can add a plain black scarf or the school beanie (school office) and we will get our classrooms toasty ASAP!

Edgecumbe College Covid Update 30-3-22

Wed Mar 30 10:02am


Bus Changes from Monday

Thu Mar 24 07:14pm

There will be a change to the Te Teko school bus run starting Monday 28th March.

Normally it leaves Edgecumbe, travels down Hydro Road, then right on to SH30 into Te Teko. It then turns left down Tahuna road to a point near the golf club. On turning around it comes back along Tahuna Road, then on to the Edgecumbe/Teko Road back to Edgecumbe and on to the College.

The change involves the bus going turning off Hydro Road onto McCracken Road and then right onto Western Drain Road. At the end of Western Drain road it joins SH30 and then follows its normal route.

Because of the longer route all students should get to the bus stop 5 minutes earlier than the usual time.
