The Learning Centre
The Head of Teaching and Learning, Mrs Margaret Neate, co-ordinates programmes for students across the school. She is based in The Learning Centre and can be contacted on +64 3 3118888. Our Teaching and Learning team offers comprehensive support for both the academically able as well as those students experiencing difficulty in reading and number skills - both very important as a foundation for all other learning. We aim for maximum achievement through the most inclusive approaches possible.
Through our Learning Centre, students are assessed and supported with programmes designed to make up for gaps in prior learning. Wherever possible, teachers provide material that meets individual needs within the context of class programmes.
Some students receive specialised one-to-one programmes which are designed to meet very specific learning targets as rapidly as possible, with minimal absences from other classes.
At times, in-class support from teacher-aides will also be available. We offer a supportive peer tutoring programme designed to utilise the skills and talents of our older students.
