Intermediate named Apple Distinguished School
Tauranga Intermediate has been recognised as an Apple Distinguished School for 2020–2022 for its use of Apple technology to enhance learning.
Apple Distinguished Schools are centres of innovation, leadership, and educational excellence that use Apple products to inspire creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking, says principal Cameron Mitchell.
They showcase innovative uses of technology in learning, teaching, and the school environment and have documented results of academic accomplishment.
“This is an excellent recognition of the innovative work our teachers are doing in the classroom and the considerable ongoing investment our Board of Trustees have made in providing 1 to 1 iPads for our students.
"The selection of Tauranga Intermediate as an Apple Distinguished School highlights our success as an innovative and compelling learning environment that engages students and provides tangible evidence of academic accomplishment.
"We want our students to be creators and not just consumers of digital content.
”This special recognition also highlights the synergy we have between our teaching and learning programmes and our school’s Mission Statement, ‘To model and nurture critical,creative, caring and collaborative thinkers'."
