Coastal Taranaki School offers many interesting and diverse courses through the Virtual Learning Network. This gives the students the oppoutunity to take part in digital lesson taught through video conference.
The Virtual Learning Network was launched to complement the wide range of video conference supported programmmes offered by schools throughout the country.
Classes are delivered via a video and audio link with a host school and a number of participant schools who are also present in the class. Our video conferencing technology allows fast, high quality, seamless communication across the country and the world. It is an excellent tool for students to take courses which many small schools such as ours are unable to offer.
