Welcome to Fiordland College

Fiordland College is a co-educational Year 7 – 13 secondary school located in the town of Te Anau, on the edge of Fiordland National Park. We are a Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) school and live our school values of effort, respect, integrity and curiosity.

Our students come mainly from the Te Anau Basin which provides a very supportive community for our school. This is seen through the huge support our families and local businesses provide to help ensure the very best facilities and opportunities for our students.

Our established reputation is as an innovative school with sound educational practices. The low teacher/student ratios make for a better learning and teaching environment. High participation by staff in co-curricular activities means exciting things happen here. We are committed to ensuring individual student needs are met.We make the most of our unique natural environment through a comprehensive Co-Curricular programme, which ensures that we fully utilise not only a world-class education but also our school’s world-class location.We are also a GreenGold Enviroschool/ Kura Taiao.

Tēnā koutou katoa

This year we are holding a day for life skills and wellness on Thursday 15 September for all at Fiordland College.

Over the last two years we have held a day where we have had 3 x 40min sessions in which all students and staff opted into to learn about life skills and wellness for their personal (and others) benefit.

We have previously had sessions such as dance, drama, pilates, yoga, stress, finance, circuit training, careers, nutrition, self massage, music, resiliency, self-talk, mental health, harakeke weaving, waiata and more.

This year we may have a keynote presenter for the whole school, followed by 2 x 40min sessions, lunch break, then 2 x 40min afternoon sessions. 

We are seeking expressions of interest to contribute to our day (1 or 2 sessions). This could be in any of the following areas:
