      Some interesting issues are raised in this article that will resonate with other secondary schools.  For example the time spent setting up 'pages' measured against the student time spent using them; the reluctance of students to engage out of school time; the reluctance of students to carry out any work that is not going to be assessed for NCEA and the ongoing problem of student access to computers.  Interestingly enough you mention the success with students in years 9 and 10 and the benefits of having a page of information dedicated to the school production.  I suspect the success of e-Portfolios for you, will come about with students using e-portfolios earlier in their schooling and with students driving the ways in which they can be used. And of course once they have access to the technology (whether school supplied or students bringing their own devices) during normal school time, progress will be maximized.
