Westmount in The South

Spanning the lower South Island, Westmount South Campus boasts an impressive array of facilities with sites in Timaru, Dunedin and Invercargill. Each of these sites cater for students from Year 3 to Year 13 and includes a combined 16 classrooms, three Senior learning centres, gymnasium and administration blocks, ensuring the needs of all students and teachers are well catered for.

The roll of 134 students is drawn from Invercargill, Gore, Dunedin, Oamaru and Timaru, with all students attending their closest site each day.

A major emphasis is placed on the individual student reaching his/her full potential.

Additional to our desire for maximising student potential, is our desire for providing the same level of support and training to our staff to maximise teaching effectiveness through training and professional development. The use of up-to-date video conferencing equipment for campus to-campus communication and specialist subject teaching broadens the subject range for senior students as well as making best use of our human and material resources nationwide.

Opportunities also exist for teachers who are interested in taking up the challenge of teaching by video conferencing either full or part time in their area of expertise.

The success of every school largely hinges on the co-operation, communication and cohesion of all its members and Canterbury Campus boasts a large number of voluntary support personnel, in the form of librarians, canteen workers, bus drivers, caretakers and teacher aides.
