At St Joseph’s Catholic School Onehunga we recognise that the needs of our Year 7 and 8 (intermediate level) students are unique.
We aim to provide a programme that allows students to have ownership of their learning and to feel an increased sense of responsibility and belonging to their school. This is done through leadership opportunities, their contribution to school and opportunities offered to them, which differ from other years.
The Year 7 and 8 programme is designed around the needs of the students each year and, therefore. can look different from year to year. However it retains our core beliefs of what Year 7 and 8 students need.
We have high expectations for our senior students in both academic and behavioural areas. Our teaching staff have high levels of integrity and work hard to plan, assess and deliver interesting and effective programmes of learning.
