Principal's Message

Welcome to Wairau Valley Special School


The aims and goals we have for our students can be encapsulated in our motto - EXPLORE - LEARN - SUCCEED.  We are a school that recognises achievement for all, celebrating success at all levels.  The school focuses upon enriching activities across all curriculum areas based on careful multi-professional assessment of individual student's needs.  We operate within an inclusive model, welcoming the community into the school and going out into the wider world where our pupils can extend their learning and social skills.

We pride ourselves on being a "Wairau Family" and nurture relationships with team members from all environments which care for our students.  Comments and feedback from parents, students and other professionals which can help us provide a better service are always welcome.

We are proud of our students, the work which we do and all the staff members involved.  


Yours sincerely
