Rolleston College 2016 was a busy year for those involved in planning and preparing Rolleston College for its opening, at the start of the 2017 academic year. This work covered the physical aspects of the new school and development of the school’s curriculum, with staff working hard to create exciting and challenging learning experiences for their year 9 students so they are prepared for their future school life and beyond. Rolleston College has purpose built facilities that will allow students to follow a variety of pathways. These incorporate modern technologies and the more traditional skills to prepare learners for a range of future vocations. Examples include lathes existing alongside modern laser cutters in the school’s technology workshops that include an automotive workshop; commercial kitchens; drama and music studios; a large theatre; and classrooms of mixed sizes for differing learning experiences. The school’s layout has been designed to meet learners’ needs rather than requiring learners to adapt to the demands of the spaces. It supports personalised in-depth individual learning and small or large group collaborative work, augmented by Rolleston College’s curriculum. This allows for a degree of personal choice so learners can pursue areas of specific interest while meeting the New Zealand Curriculum across all learning areas. Learner & teacher whānau teams working towards an inclusive & collaborative learning environment. Teamwork as students from the Raumati whānau team spell their name.
