He Puna Tautoko (HPT) and Junior Home-Room

These two centres provide “home-room” environments catering for
individual student’s learning needs. Students with significant learning needs are based in the centres where they participate in curriculum subjects focussing on life-skills. They also attend wider school classes and transition activities such as work experience and UCOL courses.

Students are encouraged to be responsible for their own learning. They learn to use their initiative, to be well organised, to be independent and to work to the best of their ability. The development of confidence and self-esteem is fostered in a positive environment where students can achieve success at their own level.

Teaching and support staff, parents/caregivers and whanau, and community resource personnel work together towards positive educational outcomes for each student.
