Future Focused Curriculum

Tournament of the Minds representatives. This year we entered the Tournament of Mind competition for the very first time. Our team from Ōtākaro was placed first winning themselves a place in the national finals in Wellington.

Students make use of pencils, workbooks and devices to support their next learning steps.

Learning at St Albans

Seniors involved in their Top Team challenge with a focus on collaboration.
