Student Network Accounts and Network Access:

Lost your password?

Your password is extremely important because it gives you
  • Access to any school computer
  • Internet/WiFi
  • File storage
  • Printing
  • Email
  • School Calendar
Soon it will give you access to personal information such as your school reports, NCEA and Cambridge progress, and much more. 

It would be dangerous to let your password fall into other hands. 


You should change your password on a regular basis. You can change your password by logging into a school computer, pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and choosing the "Change a Password" option.
Alternatively, you can use the "Change my Password" menu item in the "About Me" menu at the top of this page.

If you have lost your password, your subject teacher may be able to help. Otherwise you can visit the library and ask for help from a librarian. 

Remember to always be aware of the Network rules and follow them, otherwise you run a risk of losing your network account for a time

Your smart device

 We encourage you to bring a smart device to school to use in class. Smart devices include laptops, tablets and phones. There are some important rules about using smart devices:
Phones are never permitted to be used in class but smart devices can be used sometimes. This means that phones can never be used to make phone calls or to send texts while you are in the classroom.

However, If and only if, your teachers says "this is a smart lesson" or "this is a smart activity", you can use your smart device to access educational material for the lesson. 

If you use your smart device outside of those times, you may lose access to the Internet or lose your account for a period of time.

Accessing the school site from home:
The school Intranet can be accessed from home as easily as it can be from school.
