He Puna Tautoko (HPT)

This centre provides a  “home-room” environment catering for individual student’s learning needs. Students with significant learning needs are based in the centre where they participate in curriculum subjects that build their literacy and numeracy skills. They also attend wider school classes.

Students are encouraged to be responsible for their own learning. They learn to use their initiative, to be well organised, to be independent and to work to the best of their ability. The development of confidence and self-esteem is fostered in a positive environment where students can achieve success at their own level.

Teaching and support staff, parents/caregivers and whanau, and community resource personnel work together towards positive educational outcomes for each student.
