We believe that Ashburton Intermediate provides the best learning environment for the year seven and eight students in the Mid Canterbury district. The school’s philosophy is built around the needs of the emerging adolescent and does not compromise any of our valuable programmes due to the demands of other groups. As a school we believe that values build character which produces behaviours that are beneficial for both the individuals, others and the community in general. Our four key values of courtesy, co-operation, responsibility and respect underpin the operation of the school, and in particular our behaviour management programme. This programme in turn then aims to:
- Promote self discipline in all students - Produces a suitable environment for teaching and learning - Projects a positive image of the school in the community
The school’s learning programmes have been designed to meet the needs of the National Curriculum, the uniqueness of the age group and the incorporating the wonderful local environment in Mid-Canterbury.
