The Mercury Bay Area School website has a fresh new look and a menu that can be easily navigated by the school community including teachers, national and international students, parents and caregivers to quickly access school information.

“This website project grew from the desire to provide a platform that is easy to navigate, easy to update school information and is reflective of our school values”

Mercury Bay Area School Principal, John Wright

“The website will also provide an opportunity for staff and students to be more involved in providing visual and written content. In particular, the new blogging feature and document resource section will enable more online engagement right throughout the year”.

The new look of the website has been designed to take cues from the Mercury Bay Area School logo colours, and the menu has been structured to reflect the Student Year levels and variety of courses that the school offers. Quick links on the website have been developed so that everyday information such as enrolment procedures, school terms dates, student services, staff contact details and timetables can be easily found.

Partnering with local business

The school have partnered with local Whitianga website design company Creative Fuel to develop the new site.

“Our team is passionate about supporting Mercury Bay Area School as it's such an important part of our community. We have worked hard to provide a website that reflects all that the school has to offer to existing families, and attract new families. We are excited to be a partner and key sponsor of this project.”

Creative Fuel Website Developer, Dean Klouwens

All About Whitianga is also a proud major sponsor and supporter of this project by assisting in the promotion of the school and the local community.

Increasing roll and growing online audience

With a roll this year of 921 students and an additional 27 international students, Mercury Bay Area School is the largest Area School in New Zealand. It provides education for Year 1 to Year 13 and caters for a significant number of international students. There is a particular focus in the website design to reflect the different year areas and courses offered in the junior, middle and senior years, and a focus on international student information, academic areas and activities offered at the school.

As the school roll has continued to grow the school website has become an increasingly important tool for the school to provide information to existing and new students, and for the school community who are seeking to find and share information online.
