A well set-up specialised unit that is small enough to care for each and every individual and support Students with Additional needs.
Tūrangawaewae Department supports students who are funded through Ongoing Resourcing Scheme (ORS), Accident Compensation Claim (ACC) or have High Health Needs. Keeping this in mind, all areas of the school are easily accessible. We have specialised toilet facilities. Individualised programmes for each student are supported by registered and Professional staff including Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist and Speech Language Therapist. Our vision is to help our students develop specific, lifelong skills so that they can become independent, active members in their community and become contributing members of society. We provide Teacher or Teacher Aide support where required but believe in allowing our students the opportunity to develop their skills. We focus on functional and life skills based on Education Outside the Class.
