Our Learning Support staff aim to build self-esteem and confidence in students experiencing difficulties with their studies. They do so in a safe, caring and non-judgemental environment. Support is based on individual student needs and is priority assessed.
The Learning Support programme is run by highly qualified teachers whose fields of expertise include thinking and learning extension programmes, special education needs, and student counselling and support.
Reading and language support is offered for students experiencing difficulties and study support is available to senior students.
In Learning Support this year we are also introducing the Morningside Model of Learning at the Year 9 and 10 level. This highly effective model of learning, which was developed in the United States, aims to develop the students’ mastery of the fundamentals in Mathematics, writing and reading so that they are better prepared to take on the challenge of NCEA Level 1 in Year 11.

From The Rector

CLT 40 edit

At the beginning of the year St Andrew’s set a College-wide theme for the ‘Year of Innovation & Collaboration’.

We committed to supporting and encouraging teachers to try different things, reach out to other networks and seek alliances which would widen students’ boundaries and imagination.

Chapel Update

Last year we closed the chapter on the heartfelt story of the Memorial Chapel.

The Memorial Chapel has painstakingly been deconstructed and the area where it stood, levelled and grassed. The next phase is about rebuilding, and concept plans for the new Chapel are progressing to working drawings.
