Wellbeing & Meeting Challenges

Our team is committed to positive well being across our school. Socially, mentally, physically and emotionally.
We have adopted the 5 Ways to Mental Health model and you will see these woven throughout our curriculum, our culture and our practice. We use these, alongside our values, as the foundation of our actions and interactions.

We are also lucky enough to have a BOT funded counsellor on site. Our very successful Meeting Challenges Programme involves working with students individually, or in groups or with parents and whanau. Our counsellor is a huge asset to our school and is incredibly skilled at working alongside young people to support them with the many issues they face at an incredibly challenging time of their physical and mental development.

You can contact our counsellor Ronda Bungay through our school office, orĀ  via email on


Fergy Sports

Fergusson Intermediate believes in providing students with opportunities to participate and experience a range of different sports. The Fergy Sport concept is based on providing students with an opportunity to further refine skills and understanding in a sport of their choice.

The school has decided to use their Kiwi Sport funding to engage outside agencies to provide students with additional expertise, thus further developing their engagement and participation, and refining their understanding of the sport. The Fergy Sport programme runs on a Thursday afternoon during Terms 2. Students get to choose a sport they would like to participate in for eight weeks.

There are a range of different options available for students to choose from such as Volleyball, Girls and Boys Rugby, AFL, Ultimate Frisbee, Girls and Boys Football, Netball, Hockey, Cheerleading, Dodge Ball, Orienteering, Ki O Rahi, Basketball, Indoor Bowls, Squash, Gym Sport, Horse Riding and Mountain Biking to name but a few.
