Ngā mihi mahana kia koutou kātoa and welcome to Pukekohe Intermediate School.
Our school mission statement is “To provide the best learning environment for the social, physical and academic development of our students” and the Board of Trustees, PTA, sta and students are all fully focused on aiming high and being the best!
As a school, we embrace the New Zealand Curriculum. This document makes particular mention of students in years 7 – 10. At Pukekohe Intermediate school we know we are “laying a foundation for living and further learning“ in our students. We are also a Positive Behaviour for Learning (PB4L) School and the objectives inside this programme will be an important part of your child’s education at this school.
Intermediate provides your child and your family the option to step into a school environment that acts as a bridge between primary and secondary. We continue home room classrooms for all students and add to this, programmes and opportunities across a number of other classrooms with specialist teachers. We strive to meet the learning needs and styles of all students.
I welcome you again and look forward to meeting you over the time your child is enrolled at this school.
Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro, nōna te ngahere. Ko te manu e kai ana i te mātauranga, nōna te ao.
