Welcome to Feilding Intermediate. We are excited to welcome you to our school community.
We strive to have all students positively engaged in purposeful learning, and this learner centred goal underpins all our decision making.
Our committed and dedicated staff work collaboratively with whanau to deliver a wide variety of engaging and challenging learning opportunities for all students.
Our school is designed to meet the unique needs of young adolescents, with a wide range of challenging activities including sporting, arts, cultural and academic endeavours.
Our commitment to working with whanau is one that we take very seriously. We have an “open door” policy and encourage whanau to be as involved as possible. We utilise a variety of commuication tools, and are happy for caregivers to liase directly with teachers.
Students are placed in a CORE class - which is a composite class of year 7 and 8 students - with a wide range of interests and abilities. The learning in this class covers all curriculum areas, including targeted group teaching of literacy and numeracy.
Our students are engaged in a broad and rich curriculum that is designed to engage and extend adolescent learners.
In addition to a targeted literacy and mathematics programme, teachers deliver programmes in science, digital technology, health and physical education, the arts, social sciences and languages.
Learning in visual arts, hard materials, soft materials, digital technologies, and food technology is also delivered through specialist teachers in our purpose built technology suite.
In 2019 all new year 7s must be in the new uniform. Year 8s are welcome to wear a mix of new and old uniform as we complete the transition.
Shoes - all children require either black leather shoes or leather sandals. Children in enclosed shoes must wear plain black socks. Students are able to wear sneakers for with their PE uniform.
- Full Uniform to and from school
- Only Regulation school jackets can be worn during school time.
All students are permitted to bring their own Chromebook to school. Each class has lockable units for the safe storage of these devices during the day. All devices must be brought to school fully charged. Although BYOD is not compulsory, there are certainly some advantages of students having their own device.
