Students Contribute to National Review of NCEA

Last week the Student Academic Leaders attended an NCEA review meeting at Hobsonville Point. We discussed many intriguing topics involving NCEA with students from other schools. We covered ideas such as cross-curriculum subjects, project based learning and the timespan of NCEA levels. It was extremely interesting to be able to see the differences between our school and the others and how they incorporate other forms of learning along with NCEA. We were also able to walk around their campus and see a Flexible Learning Space (FLS) similar to the space Western Springs will soon move into, which was fascinating.
