Rosehill School is a positive, friendly and welcoming school for learners with additional learning needs.
We have a strong focus on working alongside families and whānau to personalise every students learning journey. We look beyond what each student needs to learn, to how they learn best. We want learning to be meaningful, purposeful, engaging and relevant to each student’s culture and life beyond school.
In addition to a dedicated staff of teachers, therapists, teacher aides and support staff we have a social worker and counsellor as part of our team. To access them, please talk to your child’s teacher.
Rosehill has a wide range of learning settings including our base school, satellite classes based in local mainstream primary, intermediate and secondary schools, and a community based transition facility for young adult learners, Te Ara Poutama.
Rosehill prides it’s self on providing a wide range of learning opportunities outside the classroom. These are opportunities for students to apply their learning in real life settings. Our students at Te Ara Poutama go to work experience, circus school, MIT programmes, Special Olympics and an annual camp or overseas trip.
At Rosehill we follow the New Zealand Curriculum but personalise it so it meets each student’s unique learning profile. This includes a focus on literacy and numeracy, and communication skills as well as the Key Competencies which emphasise social, physical, independence and self-management skills.
