Welcome to Heretaunga Intermediate
Thank you for taking the opportunity to consider Heretaunga Intermediate as the school for your child. As you will see, our staff provide students with many opportunities to be challenged and stretched whilst maintaining a focus on the ‘foundations’ of education - Literacy and Numeracy.
The vision for Heretaunga Intermediate is to be a school strong in all that New Zealand is strong in – Culture, Art, Music, Sport, Academia, Technology and Family. We believe that our school fulfils this vision.
Your child’s strengths and interests are not the same as every other child. We direct our energies towards engaging students in individually relevant programmes. We observe that through providing such programmes, our students are effectively engaged, motivated and pleased to be at Heretaunga. It is vitally important to us that our students have ownership of the school and their programmes, and have a sense of belonging in an environment that is keenly interested in their welfare, growth and successful learning.
At Heretaunga Intermediate we emphasise the need for students to develop a “Strong and Smart” identity. Within this identity, each student can develop the attitudes and behaviours that can lead them to become solid New Zealand citizens, holding a valued place in our community.
THE HERETAUNGA INTERMEDIATE STRONG AND SMART IDENTITY
- High Expectations
- Respect yourself
- Work together
- Be proud of your culture
- Respect others
Working with adolescents in the 21st century is exciting. Central to student success is the professional commitment of Heretaunga Intermediate staff to provide high quality learning experiences and individualised engagement of students at a time when they are undergoing one of the most rapid intellectual and developmental changes of their lives. You are invited to learn more about Heretaunga Intermediate by joining us as a visitor or by contacting our school office.
