Me mahi tahi tātou mō te oranga o te katoa - We should work together for the wellbeing of everyone
Haere mai welcome to Waitaha School,
We are so very pleased that you have taken the time to 'virtually' visit our school. I am very proud to be Principal of Waitaha School and each day I am overwhelmed with the outstanding achievements of our young people. Waitaha School has a strong sense of community and is very well supported by our Board of Trustees.
Waitaha School is a state-funded specialist school for school students with special needs aged 5 – 21 years. We are an accredited fund holder for ORS verified special needs students. As of 2022, Waitaha School has satellite provision at West Rolleston School (Te Pā Harakeke ), Knightstream School (Te Tupu Harakeke) and Rolleston College (Te Rito Harakeke). Waitaha School also has a Community Hub that operates as part of our Waitech programme for our young people transitioning to community.
The school has input from a range of specialists employed directly by the school including speech-language therapists, occupational therapists, and a physiotherapist.
