Minister Hipkins has recently announced a $16 million funding boost to adult and community education providers over the next four years – starting in 2021.  Some of this is allocated for school-based programmes to support community learning, training, wellbeing and upskilling. 

Onehunga High School Adult Learning Centre is excited by this news as it is a commitment by this government to reinvest in lifelong learning opportunities at a local level.  Our community needs are greater than ever and we value this investment in the livelihoods of those most impacted by coronavirus.

We have started the process of developing a range of appropriate upskilling and new school-based programmes.  At this stage we would welcome feedback from the community on:

  • What classes/programmes you see of need now?
  • What courses may be of interest in the future?
  • Can you contribute in any way to our programmes through teaching or mentoring?
  • Feedback on classes you have previously attended

Please send any ideas/thoughts/contributions to:




Our new gymnasium, food and technology, and technology departments are going through a major rebuild in 2020 and 2021.  Please be aware that some classes will be on hold until this programme is completed but we will be bringing back all courses as soon as the building project is complete.
