Since 2010, construction has begun on the school up until today. New buildings include new Science, English and Social Studies blocks as well as a new canteen. The old buildings were knocked down and replaced with said buildings. There are more plans for the college to be reconstructed further.
On Saturday 18th May 2013, the college held its first open-to-public Open Day. This enabled parents as well as the general public to see the new classrooms and how the college has changed.
Style of Education
Kaipara College employs a mid-range teacher to student ratio, with classes hovering around the 20-30 student per class mark. The school uses a 'card' system to either discipline or commend behavior. There are four types of cards. Green cards, which are used to commend good work and can be entered into a draw to receive prizes at an end-of-term draw. There are orange cards which warn the students, red cards which send the student to the Dean's office and finally a white card which will place the student at the head of faculty's classroom for that period.
