In 2018, Wairarapa College will be introducing a new Digital Learning Core Class. The class will utilize digital devices to enhance their learning in the core subjects of English, Health and Physical Education, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.

The presence of 1:1 devices will allow the Digital Learning Class to engage in a wider range of learning approaches such as inquiry learning, thematic learning and flipped learning, alongside the usual curriculum skills and competencies.

The school intends that the digital device be brought from home. We are working with Noel Leeming to have available from their store in Masterton, devices at reduced prices with interest-free rates. Wairarapa College will support students / families with genuine financial constraints, to ensure there are no barriers to entering this class.

Any questions, please contact Pam Redpath, Deputy Principal on 06 370 0402 or [email protected]
