Welcome

 

Welcome to South Wellington Intermediate School.

We are a specialist year 7 & 8 school focussing on the very specific needs of early adolescents. We retain a homeroom atmosphere with a strong link to one teacher. The homeroom teacher is responsible for Integrated Studies (English and Social Studies curriculums) and for maths. For other subjects students may move around the school, being taught by several teachers during the week. In this way teachers are able to teach to their special  strengths, and this increased specialisation is an ideal preparation for the child’s secondary education.

All classes are arranged as mixed Year 7 and Year 8. Students will be challenged with opportunities to participate in a range of academic, cultural and arts programmes.

At South Wellington Intermediate we don’t see these two years as solely a time to prepare students for High School, but rather see it as a unique and special time where the journey into adolescence is valued.  Students are supported to become independent learners, thinkers and actors, and the apron strings of Primary school are loosened to allow greater autonomy, exploration, inspiration and self management. We can’t wait to share the next two years of your child’s learning journey with you.
