Technology is changing the way we live our lives – home, work and social. The way we learn needs to catch up! We feel that we are leading this way of thinking, where technology should play a more significant role in our classroom and change the way it looks, feels and more importantly how it sets up our students for success.
We run a host of workshops and community-focused tech events with the aim of engaging our students with the local community. Demystifying tech is an important mission for us here at TechSchool and with access to our modern facilities, we are able to deliver a great learning experience while adding value to the community.
Avondale campus is a mix between computer labs, workshops and a chill out lounge. Walking distance from Lynnmall, New Lynn transport hub, gyms, cafes and bars, our students get to experience a great academic environment and social life. Our students know when to put their heads down and get into hackathon mode when necessary and have a few laughs afterwards. Modern, warm and vibrant space is just minutes away from New Lynn and Avondale’s busy social spaces.
