E nga mana, e nga iwi, e nga reo. Tena koutou, tena koutou, tena koutou

To the people of the four winds, greetings to you all.

South Wellington Intermediate School provides a learning environment that is dedicated solely to meeting the special needs of the emerging adolescent.

We continue the development begun in primary school but add a new range of learning opportunities to meet the broadening interests and developmental requirements of our students.

Our focus is on educational excellence within a safe and supportive environment.

At South Wellington Intermediate we have high educational standards.

To have high standards we must have high expectations. We expect our students to be well behaved, focussed, motivated and actively involved in school activities.

The school has an excellent teaching staff who are committed and dedicated to meeting the needs of our students.
They bring to the school a wide range of talents and experiences. They are tremendous role models who give guidance to their students and challenge them to become confident young people who have a positive attitude to learning.

The school offers many extra activities to support students who are enthusiastic about challenge and extension.

Our school is also proudly multi-cultural and we celebrate our diversity.

The unique educational structure of South Wellington Intermediate School builds a solid foundation for the emerging adolescent by allowing increasing specialisation but retaining a strong link to a home room.

The needs of the student is always the focus.
