Innovation HUB (Specialist Classes)


Whanganui Intermediate offers an exciting range of specialist classes to students. These are led by highly qualified and enthusiastic teachers. Students learn all of the Specialist subjects. Each term two specialist subjects are attached to each cluster. Students have two lessons a week in each subject – that’s four specialist sessions a week! These subjects ensure all our students get an introduction to skills and attitudes that will equip them to move onto secondary and beyond with a thirst for life-long learning.
