The Tasman Campus is situated in a semi-rural setting at the end of Headingly Lane, Richmond, Nelson with the playing fields running up to the sea’s edge. Although only three minutes from the Richmond CBD these rural / lifestyle surroundings provide a peaceful and relaxing environment for students and teachers alike.
Students commute daily from Motueka, Nelson and nearby Richmond.
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 in 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 Tasman Campus boasts a large number of voluntary support personnel, in the form of librarians, canteen workers, bus drivers, caretakers and teacher aides
