Mountview has a long held reputation as being at the forefront of 21st Century inquiry based learning and displays this within modern classroom environments with digital resources and learning opportunities. These include:
- Live TV broadcastsvia our own TV studio
- Individualised programmes
- Interactive whiteboards in all classes giving rise to blogging, animation and powerpoint
- Computers and/or notebook s available in all classes
- Modern teaching spaces
- New Entrant and Rumaki classes fully supported by Teacher Aide and Kaiawhina
Another feature of teaching and learning at Mountview is the way teachers utilise Teaching as Inquiry in determining next learning steps for children giving them a sense of control over their own learning. A robust assessment programme ensures teachers are able to inform both students and their whanau of their progress in learning.Students learn appropriate and positive behaviours through a values based programme which we call WHAIA. Learning is supported by a Reading recovery and other interventions.
Our programmes of learning include technology and for Year 7-8 students this is provided on location in our well-equipped technology room. Students enjoy a programme of learning to swim once yearly by personnel at the AC Baths Arena. Our school is fortunate to have a large hall which allows both performing arts, sport, fitness and a variety of cultural events.
