Brandon Intermediate - Dare to be True

           Brandon Intermediate School         


Information and resources to support wellbeing and support learning at home


 Brandon Intermediate is closed.

The Prime Minister has announced that schools are now closed, effective from 3pm today.  

(Tuesday 24th March 2020)

 Brandon Intermediate staff will be here Tuesday and Wednesday for those students of essential community staff, such as doctors and nurses.

The school holidays have been brought forward. Our current understanding is that we will be having our two week break now, and commencing with learning at home plans following that break.

Our teachers will be at school over the next two days supporting those children still at school, and finalising our learning plans.  

More information will be shared.

Brandon PRIDE 4 Learning 

The matrix of Brandon PRIDE 4 learning expectations is now published. All students have been taught the expectations and they are displayed around the school. Should students forget and find themselves in trouble the expectations will be used as the base for the conversations that are needed. Punishment is not part of what we believe in – but owning the behaviour and repairing any hurt is.
