Principal's Message

Welcome to our web site. We are very proud of the programmes we offer students with intellectual challenges.  While our base school is situated in Tamaki we also have primary and intermediate and secondary satellite classes across the Eastern Corridor of Auckland. We have a current roll of approximately 250 students and a teaching staff of over 108. This includes Teachers, Teacher Aides, Therapist and Specialist Teachers. You will find out about staff and  the specialist programmes we deliver by oexploring our web site. 

My own journey to this point began as a Primary trained teacher within the local area. I developed an interest in the area of Special Education and have now completed 30 years of service in this field. I am passionate that our special students need a place to “stand tall” and a place where they are challenged to develop the skills they need to live as independently as possible in the community. 

By working along side families and fellow professionals we can develop individual programmes which can ensure our students reach their true potential
