WELCOME TO TAWA INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL
We would like to extend a very warm welcome to international students and families considering enrolling at Tawa Intermediate School. Our school has a history and reputation that values excellence, diversity, independence and good citizenship. We offer the opportunity for students to experience high quality Year 7 and 8 education in a safe, caring environment, and currently have a school roll of 550 students.
Intermediate schooling has the potential to provide a real highlight in your child’s education. The emerging adolescent stage requires us as educators to work alongside our students, teach in a way that reinforces our charter goals of ‘Engage! Grow! Inspire!’ and to relate in a way that keeps everyone’s dignity intact. We have an experienced group of teachers who are enthusiastic, committed and lifelong learners. We take pride in being the best that we can be and instilling that aspiration into the young people who attend our school.
The curriculum areas of English and mathematics are key to success as a student, and these happen daily in our classrooms. Our curriculum offers breadth of choice and the opportunity for students to explore their special talents through our academies system. This includes a range of academic, sporting and cultural activities.
Tawa Intermediate School has a high profile in digital technology, supported by our creative, talented staff and a stunning school digital infrastructure. Students also have the opportunity to bring their own technology and utilise it for their learning.
We hope you consider Tawa Intermediate School as your destination for studying in New Zealand. We look forward to building a strong, productive relationship with you and your child in the near future.
