Welcome to Our Community

Central Southland College is a vibrant and supportive school community. We work hard to provide a wealth of opportunities and experiences for our students and believe in offering a foundation which effectively prepares every young person for life after secondary school in the 21st Century.

Nestled in Winton, with the backdrop of rural Southland, Central Southland College is perfectly placed to draw on all that New Zealand has to offer. We value and utilise a wide range of links with our local community while also embracing technology to ensure we stay connected and involved in wider New Zealand life.

We are extremely proud of our record of academic, sporting and cultural successes with a focus on setting clear goals to ensure that every student strives for, and reaches, their own potential. In conjunction with this, numerous student-led initiatives are encouraged and supported throughout the school to ensure that our young people are well-rounded citizens who contribute positively to life within, and beyond, the College.

Thank you for taking the time to view our site. We look forward to meeting you.

The Government is looking at ways of strengthening NCEA that will benefit young New Zealanders. Over the next few months they want to hear from people across New Zealand. Everyone with an interest in NCEA is urged to share their experiences and ideas. 

A starting point for parents is to visit and attend a public workshop. 

On Monday 23 of July there is a public workshop at Verdon College in Invercargill from 7:00 to 9:30 pm. 

There is also a Presentation about the NCEA Review

Please take the time to have your say.
