Specialist Enrichment Tutorial Time (S.E.T Time)

At Heretaunga Intermediate we believe in the importance of engaging students in a variety of learning programmes.  Our Technology, Arts, Music, Sport, and Cultural opportunities are a good example of this.

Students in the Y7-10 age of learning need to be involved in authentic experiences, be exposed to a variety of learning opportunities, and be responsible for their learning.  At Heretaunga Intermediate we believe one way to achieve this, and to engage and motivate the students is to offer a time where students can choose to be involved in a Specialist Enrichment Tutorial. The tutorials are run by teachers and community members, where possible, that have a special interest/skill in a particular area. The tutorials make students take responsibility for their learning as they have to choose from the variety of options available.  The programme runs for seven weeks at a time, and students can choose two different tutorials over the year.
