The school is fine, it’s large enough and there are enough people to just avoid anyone you don’t like. The school is very open and accepting to people from all walk of life. Some of the teachers are pretty poor but that’s the same with any school. Also the principal is bad currently but it doesn’t affect us on a daily basis

Onslow College Leavers Ceremony

Some great staff and leadership over the years that my 2 sons attended however, the current Principal is appallingly lacking in communication and relationship skills for someone in a leadership position. Her rant at the Leavers Ceremony yesterday because of a prank that only a few students were involved in, lacked good judgement. The Principal had nothing positive to say to the more than 100 Year 13 students. Further she left immediately after her speech. I felt so sad that this is a memory that our fine young sons and daughters will leave Onslow College with. Whatever had happened, should have been dealt with quietly behind the scenes. Publicly denouncing the entire Year 13 group because of the actions of a few students was unacceptable. To the students credit, they showed remarkable restraint and self control in the face of such insult. A big thumbs up to the other staff members who turned the occassion around. A big thank you.

Great School that may be losing its appeal

Spent 5 of the best years of my life and chose to send my kids here as well. I love the way the school encourages independent learning and not relying on spoon feeding, teachers really understand the importance of learning of oneself. Though, current principal is a tyrant. Used the year 13 leavers assembly to tell them off for some kid who did a prank too far. Such a horrible thing to do to the entire year group, made the day more bitter than sweet for my son. Hope she learns to be kind to her students, rather than purposefully putting them against her. But great school, my son loved his time here.

Shit whole filled with druggies and other people like that. The people in the school are ass holes with no respect for others and there belongs. The amount of time I have been caused at for haven’t my own beliefs is astonishing. The teacher try to help but are two focused on stopping one kid from hitting another. This being said I have not learned anything from the school and for going into a very academic based Field I think that going to this school has stunted my Growth as a teen. I would not recommend and there are way better schools in the Wellington region.

Better option for females
