Our Vision

The Farm Cove Intermediate School community strives to ‘Reach Out’ and work collaboratively across the school, within the wider community and as global citizens. Our students are empowered as learners. They are provided with opportunities to develop academically, socially, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Their learning comes to life as they are engaged in authentic inquiry based experiences that promote the attitudes which we value. Our values include friendliness, cooperation, integrity, respect, enthusiasm and persistence.

Principal’s Welcome

We recognise adolescence is a time of transition. We foster independence and support our students to develop their own sense of identity. We actively encourage our students to ‘Reach Out’ and work collaboratively across the school, within the school and wider community and as global citizens.

Our Learning

Farm Cove Intermediate School adheres strictly to the NZCF (New Zealand Curriculum Framework), and staff maintain an ongoing review process to ensure the needs of students are being met. Staff also attend courses and continue to upskill themselves professionally to ensure quality teaching and learning is taking place at Farm Cove Intermediate.
