Learning at Waikowhai
At Waikowhai Intermediate, we take pride in challenging our students to take ownership of their learning. We have stepped away from the traditional teacher-led classroom, and have embraced inquiry-based learning where the students choose their journeys based on a larger concept. Evidence of this method can be seen in the videos below

The Real Cost of Cheap Meat is a short film that room 8 student Maja Skilling entered into the Vegetarian Society Film Competition. Her talented entry came in the top 4 in New Zealand!
"I decided to enter the vegetarian society film competition because my parents have a friend who is an animal rights activist and he told me about it because I am a vegetarian and I like animals. He got me some footage of factory farms and gave me some advice on the filming because he is also a photographer. It only took a day to film, but it took a few weeks to put together."- Maja
