Outside of the Classroom

Students are given a variety of opportunities to have meaningful experience with their peers in safe and collaborative environments.

Forest School

Whanganui Intermediate School is removing barriers to learning by removing walls from the classroom. We offer an integrated forest school as part of a mainstream school, giving students the opportunity to spend time learning in an outdoor classroom.

Sustainable Coastline

Looking after our environment is important to our students at WIS, we support Sustainable Coastlines in monitoring and cleaning our NZ beaches. We monitor Kai Iwi beach and this initiative is supported by our Whanganui District Council who offered to provide the funds to transport our students to the beach.

School Camp

School Camp is run every two years and is highlight for students and teachers alike. It’s a chance for students to really understand our values of Whanaungatanga and Manaakitanga.
