Welcome to Rimu
Learning in Rimu
Rimu 2020

The Year 7 and 8 seniors of Clyde Quay School belong to Rimu whanau. We are one whanau, two teachers, and two learning spaces. Students are supported to use our space and set up flexibly and fluidly.


Our learning in Rimu is highly student directed, with learners identifying their learning goals, next steps and how to plan their time to meet these goals. Workshops are offered based on learning needs, allowing students to access the teacher input they need. This is balanced with independent consolidation tasks, group activities and follow up tasks, both digital and hard copy. There are accountability checks factored into this modern way of learning, and students are regularly monitored, with reflection time being a part of our programme.


Both Matua G and Sandy plan and teach collaboratively, building the learning power of individuals, alongside our unique culture as the leaders of our school. Seniors are strongly encouraged to give back to our school and local community and plenty of opportunities are provided to this end.


We look forward to sharing our successes with you all, be sure to check back regularly to see what we've been up to!

If you have any queries don't hesitate to ask.  We can be contacted through our class email rimu@clydequay.school.nz.
