At Matamata College every attempt is made to support the individual needs of every student. The school has a strong pastoral care system which operates to help students with academic, personal or behaviour problems. We believe in being pro-active and we prefer early intervention to prevent small issues becoming big ones. Read more about about pastoral care system from the link below.
