Newlands Intermediate - Wellington City - 4 kw
Nau mai, nau mai, haere mai ki te pae tukutuku Schoolgen o Te Kura Waenga o Horokiwi.
Newlands Intermediate School is nestled in the northern suburbs of New Zealand’s capital city, Wellington. Intermediate schools are unique to New
Zealand and consist entirely of Year 7 and Year 8 students. At present there are 13 classrooms and 375 students.
Our school provides an environment in which our students develop a sound understanding of themselves as learners and develop learning dispositions, through being given opportunities to be involved in the decision making processes. Becoming a Schoolgen school was driven by our students and provides leadership roles at Newlands Intermediate. By connecting, investigating and questioning global issues, students can make a meaningful contribution to the life of the school. Schoolgen has provided a real platform for our students to discover the importance of saving energy and caring for the local environment.
Newlands Intermediate is committed to the opportunities that becoming a Schoolgen school provides and has pledged that any money saved as a direct result of the photovoltaic panels will be redirected into energy-wise and environmental opportunities for the students of our school.
