Kia ora, Buenos dias, Bula vinaka, Namaste, Kia orana, Konnichiwa, Guten tag, Ni hao, Privyet, Greetings.
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Devon Intermediate.
Devon Intermediate is a vibrant learning community, set in park like grounds with a fine history of providing age-appropriate quality learning opportunities for middle years students.
This is an exciting place to be!
At Devon, we encourage and support all students to set SAIL towards an “Attitude for Excellence” based around four valued learning and teaching practices.
We have chosen the acronym:
to express these.
A special feature of Devon Intermediate are our Academy Classes. We believe that students learn best in an environment which builds on their talents, interests and learning styles. In our experience, Academy classes provide a powerful motivator, promote successful learning and increase student engagement. We are working on developing this concept further into the future.
Next time you cross a river, have a look at the structure of the bridge that spans it. You may have noticed that it is made with connected triangles. Triangles are considered to be the strongest geometric shape. The Egyptian pyramids are another example. Like the triangle, the strength of our Devon Intermediate community is in the Power of 3 - students, whanau and school, working together to provide the best possible educational opportunities for your children.
I am extremely proud to be the principal of Devon Intermediate and welcome any opportunity to meet with any prospective students and their Whanau and show them around our school.
