Working effectively with others.
One of our key learning competencies is for students to take an active part in their learning and as such, our teachers support students in self-reﬂection, self-evaluation and goal setting. To aid this process, students are actively and regularly provided with feedback on their performance. This helps to promote quality education and to enable students to successfully progress to the next stage in their learning.
Students at Belmont Intermediate School are provided with many opportunities to participate and extend themselves in a range of academic challenges throughout the year. Specific guidance and training is provided to all students who wish to challenge themselves academically and compete against other students, both nationally and internationally. Our students compete in a number of events including Mathex, Auckland Intermediate Schools Art Exhibition, Kids Lit Quiz,Future Problem Solving, Otago Maths, International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS), The Science Fair and many others covering technology, writing, ICT and English.
