Shirley Intermediate School Mission Statement

Educating locally for lifelong connection

Do you remember the days of knowing your

neighbours? In this digital age, building

local connections creates lifelong anchors

for our children. Whether it’s bringing the

community into the classroom, or making

classroom learning relevant for the real

world, Shirley Intermediate has - since

1934 - been a core part of the wider Shirley,

Richmond and Dallington communities.

With a major building programme

coming, and the move (to next door) of

Banks Avenue School , the local educational

pathways are increasingly compelling.

Know local, go local - Put a stake in

the ground and put your hand up for the

wellbeing and connectedness of your

children within your community. • Social

cohesion and individual growth • Learning

through inquiry and direct teaching

• Learning in the classroom and in the

community • Academia and creativity

school. Principal Aaron Richards explains

that the strength of the programme lies

in immersing students in a culture that

is different than their own. This enables

students to develop an understanding

that cultural diversity is not limited to just

doing things differently, it is more about

thinking differently. Learning this concept


early enhances attitudes such as tolerance,

open-mindedness and inclusion. It also

strengthens students abilities to engage

with and communicate with people from

different cultural backgrounds. It is my

hope that this experience will be a catalyst

for the students who in the future could

be leaders in New Zealand's international

trade Industry.
