We offer a fantastic alternative to large intermediates. Small class sizes and a dedication to two more years of learning set our students up for a seamless and well prepared transition to High School.
They receive many opportunities to develop these skills. We are committed to providing wide and varied opportunities, real leadership development and practice. We offer a range of opportunities for all students whilst not compromising teaching and learning as our main goal.
We provide a balanced curriculum ensuring:
Our intermediate students have access to 1 to 1 devices. We use a combination of iPads, Laptops and Chromebooks to enhance the curriculum. We use a blended programme which means we use school books and digital means together in preparation for high school.
As part of the Year 7-8 Curriculum, our students bus to Tamatea Intermediate every Monday to experience Technology with another school. They learn skills in; art, sewing, hard materials (wood work), cooking and electronics.
