A warm welcome to Balmacewen Intermediate.

Balmacewen Intermediate is a place of growth and learning, of challenge and fun.

Your child is about to take the next step in their educational journey. Typically it’s a time of growing independence and developing a sense of identity. It is a unique moment in development where many important understandings and connections are formed.

It’s also a time when friendships and social interactions assume greater importance as young people transition to adolescence.

We understand all of these factors and plan our programmes to suit the engagement and challenge required for this special age and stage. We are experts in the field of pre- adolescent education and our approach is specific and targeted.

Our school values of Perseverance, Excellence, Respect and Kindness help us to stay focused on what’s most important and that is the physical, emotional and mental wellbeing of our tamariki.

Our learning programmes connect to our values in order to be our best and to live a healthy and happy life.

There’s so much to look forward to as you start your time at Balmacewen. Welcome in, come and enjoy all that Balmacewen has to offer.
