SUPPORTED EDUCATION

Te Hapai O

 

Te Hapai O opened at the start of Term 2 2021. It is a specialist learning centre designed to cater for the individual needs of our students. The learning centre is a supportive classroom environment acknowledging students’ prior learning, abilities and cultural heritage. There is an emphasis on literacy and numeracy as being the necessary foundations for success in students’ learning.

 

This year we identified a group of Year 9 students who needed extra support in literacy and numeracy and we formed a homeroom class for these students. They are based in Te Hapai O for English, Mathematics and Social Studies.

 

Te Hapai O is purpose built with a focus on a calming safe sensory space. Our specialised staff are highly qualified to support education and wellbeing with a small class size and well stocked resources.
