Kia Ora Koutou, Greetings
Welcome to Fairfield Intermediate School. We are a vibrant, multi-cultural intermediate school situated in Hamilton. Our school offers quality educational learning opportunities for emerging adolescents in a stimulating environment.
Our staff is committed to providing programmes of excellence to meet the learning needs of all of our students through a holistic curriculum. We also offer students a wide range of extra-curricular learning opportunities. These opportunities are essential when promoting skills such as effectively managing time, communication, commitment, courage, co-operation, courtesy and achieving personal excellence. Our ultimate goal is to create citizens who will contribute positively to the community and who will reach their full potential.
As a school, we encourage parents, caregivers and whanau to be actively involved in their child's learning. We have an open door policy that encourages open communication, feedback and discussion about any matter of importance to both parents, caregivers and students.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, the staff and current students, we look forward to welcoming you to our school and developing a partnership with you over the next two years.

We hope that you and your whanau are keeping well and that you are managing to enjoy some quality family time together in this extraordinary situation we find ourselves in. It has been fantastic to receive photos of our students engaging in their online learning! We are now a week into the Level 4 COVID-19 compulsory lockdown and I think we would all agree that this is very different from anything most of us have ever experienced. I wanted to reassure you that our school staff will continue to be available to support your child’s learning and wellbeing and at the conclusion of the holiday period, formalised online learning will continue to take place and teachers will be available to continue to assist with your child’s learning.
Also just in case you were not aware, we have some good news to support you either working at home and/or studying at home - Spark, Vodafone, Vocus/Slingshot, 2Degrees and Trustpower have all advised that they have removed their data caps and the possibility of any extra charges based on usage. This is fantastic news for our school community.
Please keep safe, stay home and take care of yourselves and your whanau at this time. We are all in this together and it is important that we all continue to play our role to beat COVID-19.
