The Nelson Campus is situated in a semi-rural setting at the end of Headingly Lane, Richmond, Nelson with the playing fields running up to the sea’s edge. Although only three minutes from the Richmond CBD these rural / lifestyle surroundings provide a peaceful and relaxing environment for students and teachers alike. Students commute daily from Motueka, Nelson and nearby Richmond.
Major emphasis is placed on individual students reaching their full potential. Additional to creating personalised learning opportunities for all students, is our desire to provide the same level of support and training for staff to maximise teaching effectiveness through targeted professional development. The use of up-to-date Zoom platforms for campus to-campus communication and specialist subject teaching broadens the subject range for senior students as well as making the best use of our human and material resources nationwide.
Opportunities also exist for teachers who are interested in taking up the challenge of teaching by Zoom, either full or part time in their area of expertise. The success of every school hinges on the co-operation, communication and cohesion of all its members and this is particularly evident at Nelson Campus. We are also very fortunate to be assisted by many voluntary support personnel, in the form of librarians, canteen workers, bus drivers, caretakers and teacher aides.
“We are a caring school where students enjoy the experience but at the same time we set high expectations. We believe in creating a culture whereby students can learn to be successful, self-directed learners.”
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.
