21st Century learning is not just about learning knowledge but also how to construct it and apply it to life. Students in the new buildings at Tarawera High School will be provided with rich and varied learning experiences to cater for different learning needs and rates of learning.
New approaches to classroom design give teachers in modern schools the opportunity to use innovative and imaginative teaching practices to better meet the needs of all their students.
Teachers will share large learning spaces, rather than traditional classrooms, with children at different levels, learning different things.
The new Tarawera High School will include an Administration Block, Performing Arts Theatre, Wharenui complex, Visual Arts Centre, Hospitality Suite and learning houses. The school re development is underway on the Northern field with completion of stage 1 expected by the end of Term 2, 2015.
