On Thursday 26th June, our TravelWai's councillors attended the TravelWise Awards Ceremony at Eden Park from 4 - 7pm.
Waikowhai Intermediate School was awarded with a prestigious GOLD AWARD again showing that we are maintaining a very high standard of student awareness about keeping safe when in and around the roads near our school.
We would like to thank parents and whanau for your continued support to ensure that our students are cycling, scootering, walking or bussing to school rather than being picked up by private vehicles rain, hail or shine. This saves a great deal of chaos at the school gates.
Have a safe and TravelWise day.
Along with this accomplishment, the whole squad has been invited to trial for the Roskill Walter Dickson representative team that play in the first week of the Term 2 school holidays.
Education Review Office Report

The report commented that “the school uses achievement information to make positive changes’ to learners’ engagement, progress and achievement. Students are well engaged in school life and value opportunities to engage in a range of leadership opportunities. The well organised classrooms and clear expectations for student behaviour support a settled school tone”.
