About Us
Modern Learning Environments

Most school in New Zealand were built many years ago based on an industrial age, ‘factory-style’ model for learning. In these environments, all students tend to learn the same things, at the same time.

In recent years we have redeveloped our school into a modern learning environment, which is designed for our 21st Century learners.  Our modern learning environments have been designed to align three key principles. Firstly, how the brain works best.  Secondly, how effective learning occurs, and thirdly, how effective teaching occurs. 

Our modern learning environments are flexible, open and well-resourced to enable our students to engage in learning that is personalised, socially constructed, differentiated, student initiated and connected.

Flexible
Open
Well Resourced

Our classes can be split into smaller groups and spread over a wider area or combine with another class to allow team teaching or integrated learning areas.

Our learning pods have fewer walls, more glass than traditional cellular classrooms. This provides the opportunity for teaching and learning to be deprivatised.  Working in an open environment enables learning to be shared between teachers and learners.

Our students and teachers are provided with a range of learning spaces and electronic devices to enhance learning through a range of different learning activities, such as reading, group work, project space, wet areas, reflection, and presenting.
