Learning at Arohanui

The Arohanui Curriculum

Vision: confident, connected, actively involved, lifelong learners

At Arohanui we view each student as a unique learner. The Arohanui Special School Curriculum focuses on supporting each student to develop the skills they need to be an effective communicator, as independent as possible throughout their lives, and to reach their potential in all areas.

We follow the New Zealand Curriculum but adapt it to meet the needs of each student.
