Congratulations to the winner of the major prize this year - Jordan Russell (Room 8). Jordan has won 2 tickets on the South Coast Discovery flight supplied by Wellington Helicopters. This flight takes around 25 minutes and will depart Wellington City and head towards the south coast via the Makara Wind Farm. Weather permitting, the flight will stop off at an isolated seal colony before returning to Wellington. Special thanks to Wellington Helicopters for the great deal they gave us on this. https://www.helicopters.net.nz
Many other students won smaller prizes in this draw, including the 10 lucky students who received sports headphones kindly donated by 100% Newbolds Upper Hutt.
This event could not have been so successful without the support of our community. An extra special thank you must go to:
And finally to our sponsors who kindly donated most of the prizes:

The chromebooks that we will be able to purchase as a result of this fundraiser are hugely beneficial for learning and will make a real difference for our students and staff.
|SCHOOL EMERGENCY EVACUATION PLAN|
Welcome to Maidstone Intermediate School. Our school is situated in the centre of Upper Hutt City and caters for the middle school years (11-13 years). We pride ourselves on providing a safe, stimulating and challenging learning environment. We offer all students a wide variety of academic, cultural and sporting opportunities that set them on a path to be productive, life-long learners. Our six core values of Respect, Responsibility, Manaakitanga, Integrity, Teamwork, and Courage form the heart of Maidstone. Maidstone students and staff alike understand and practice these values. This leads to a secure, caring and supportive environment for our learners. The pre-adolescent years are an exciting time – a time when students are beginning to view the world and their part in it with new awareness and understanding. At Maidstone Intermediate we recognise that these years are unique and require programmes that meet the specific needs of this age group. Our programmes challenge students to develop their skills and talents through a broad range of learning experiences. We offer a number of specialist curriculum areas, options programmes, leadership roles and sporting opportunities as well as sound academic-based classroom programmes. Open communication is critical and we invite you to participate in your child’s learning and encourage you to support the many educational activities throughout the year.
