Experience Cobham 2015
This is a new initiative we set up in 2014. The purpose of Experience Cobham is to provide our prospective Yr 6 students (and their families) with a fun experience of what life is like here at the awesome Cobham.
Here are the dates we are holding Experience Cobham:
- Thursday 4th June 9:30am – 12:30pm Burnside & Waimairi Schools
- Monday 8th June 9:30 – 12:30pm Ilam & Fendalton Schools
- Wednesday 17th June 9:30am – 12:30pm Wairakei & Roydvale Schools
- Monday 22nd June 9:30am – 12:30pm Students from non-contributing schools
With a consistent roll of over 600, Cobham Intermediate is able to provide significant resources and facilities specifically tailored to meet the needs of year 7 and 8 students. Our innovative teaching programmes include accelerated classes for the highly able, inquiry immersion classes, learning and special needs support, bi-lingual provision, English as a Second Language (ESOL) and high quality international student care. Core classroom teachers work collaboratively to cater for the needs of individual students. We employ specialist staff not only in the technology subjects (food, fabrics, wood, metal/plastics), but also in music, science, and physical education. This allows for smaller class sizes and more comprehensive, professional activities in these areas of the curriculum. Cobham offers a diversity of opportunities across academic, cultural and sporting domains, a strength that meets the educational needs of our multi-cultural intake and provides rich experiences across the curriculum. Our students excel in these fields, all of them achieving successes in a positive, caring environment.
All students (and staff!) are encouraged to live up to our motto “Achieving for Life”.
