The rural Hamilton Campus based in the community of Eureka unites 133 students Year 3-13 from Tauranga, Thames, Cambridge and Hamilton.
Our tranquil surroundings encourage dedication to focused teaching and learning. During break times students are fully involved in a wide range of sporting and music activities that contribute to our positive school culture. Vast open fields, sporting and musical equipment, a weights gym, a beach volleyball and indoor courts are fully utilised and enjoyed by our energetic students, teachers and community. The well being of our school community is evidenced in the calibre of our pastoral care and restorative practises.
Collaborative and highly effective staff continually push educational boundaries to create an outstanding learning environment visible through our project-based and inquiry-driven learning. Immersed in the OneSchool Language of Learning, students articulate their own learning journeys, strengths and challenges. As teachers facilitate goal setting, critical and reflective thinking students become increasingly equipped to direct their own learning.
Hamilton Campus adopts a progressive teaching approach leveraging modern technology to create, innovate and problem solve. Virtual Classrooms connect students and teachers all over New Zealand and Globally via the Zoom platform.
“Hamilton Campus is student-centered and our learning programmes are developed to engage our learners in a range of rich learning contexts, to support self-directed learning.”
Hamilton Campus is a thriving hub of rich learning where a strong and supportive leadership team is counterbalanced with excellent Community support. Our students are immersed in learning opportunities that support life readiness. Student voice and learning needs are at the core of our learning programmes. Through restorative approaches in behaviour management, goal setting and positive reinforcement, our students are empowered to achieve to their highest level. As a progressive campus, we have seen innovative developments in the form of the Senior Learning Centre, Makerspace, Year 7-8 Innovative Learning Environment and Junior School Learning Centre/Library. These multipurpose spaces are open plan and have been developed to raise student competency around the 21st century skills and self-directed learning.
At our School, students are encouraged to develop their full potential and acquire the discipline of ‘learning how to learn’, while upholding fundamental Christian teachings and beliefs, especially those of purity, integrity and godliness. The truth and authority of the Holy Bible and strong family values underpin the commitment of the School to provide quality in every facet of education – curriculum, teachers, facilities, management and discipline – in a safe, secure and caring environment.
