Our students will
become confident,
connected and
actively involved in
lifelong learning.

At Wesley, we believe that it is our responsibility to equip your child to become a valued and constructive member of our society.  The staff at this school strive to deliver the very best in academic, sports and cultural activities, while all the time providing your child with a balanced programme.  We aim to recognise the individual strengths of every member within the school.

One of our strengths here at Wesley is to prepare students for secondary school. We often receive excellent feedback from former students, parents and teachers from local secondary schools that tell us we are successful in achieving this. The two years spent at intermediate are critical in your child’s development at a time of rapid emotional and physical growth. We endeavour to give students an opportunity to develop personal interests, self confidence and self-awareness.

Greater independence is promoted, and every opportunity is taken to encourage creativity through a wide variety of activities.  Your child will have two years of opportunity and challenge; a time to try new experiences, and a time to extend their own personal learning boundaries.

We insist on high standards and strong discipline.  This ensures that students of varying ages and ethnic origin are able to work together in a safe, secure and supportive environment.

Personally, I believe that teaching the core subjects well, in particular Mathematics and English, integrating Technology into classroom programmes, and providing a safe environment for learning is what education is all about – and as a father, that is what I want for my own children,

Reporting to Parents

We believe that communication with parents is vital to the well being of your child’s education at Wesley Intermediate School, and we encourage parents and teachers to keep in contact with each other throughout the year through informal visits. A written report is sent home in Terms One, Two and Four.

An Open Evening is held in Term One, and this is an opportunity for the staff to explain how the school programme works.  Formal interviews are also held at the end of Term Two. During these interviews you will have the opportunity to discuss the contents of your child’s workbooks  and assessments.
