Administration Building – the New Face of the School
Exciting News …..
A new Administration Building is proposed, at the main entrance of the school on the empty grass area in front the existing Adminstration & Hall building. This presents us, as a community, with a unique opportunity to change the face of the school.
It is important that this building embodies the Past, Present & Future of Rutherford College.
How can you contribute?
As part of the Rutherford community we would love to hear what the school means to you and any design ideas that could reflect the Past, Present & Future of Rutherford College.
We will be having a Consultation Night on Tuesday, 17 September 2019, 6pm in the Staffroom, Finger food will be provided.

Rutherford College, Te Atatu – Auckland
Rutherford College is proud to announce that host of the documentary “All in the Mind”, and co-host of the TV Series “The Secret life of Girls”, Nathan Wallis, Aotearoa’s renowned neuroscience educator, is coming to our community with his talk – Teen Brain.
There are 6000-year-old hieroglyphics carved into the pyramids depicting the teenagers of the time as being self-obsessed, defiant and unmotivated – that’s sounding pretty familiar don’t you think?
During adolescence part of your teenage brain “shuts for renovations”. This is the part of the brain responsible for controlling your teenager1s moods, for understanding consequences and for thinking about the well-being of others. So, whilst you can’t expect lots of those behaviours during adolescence, there are ways that you can enhance and maximise the times when they can. Understanding the changes that are taking place for your teen will help you to navigate successfully these important and formative years.
Join Nathan for an in-depth look into the teen brain and get a summary of the latest research and everything a parent, grandparent or whanau needs to know.
Tickets are available at www.eventfmda.co.nz.
Get in quick as tickets will sell out.
