Transition Centre Wairau Valley Special School
The Wairau Valley Special School Transition Centre is our Education centre for students 17 and over, preparing to leave school and to access the local community. It is situated in Takapuna at 1/29 Northcroft Street. There is easy access to shops, supermarkets, the local mall, gym, library, municipal swimming pool, theatres, movies, parks and beach.
The Transition programme is designed to help students further develop their life and vocational skills in accordance with their Individual Transition Plan, and use the location and environment to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary in accessing the local community and its facilities.
There are also Transition classes at base school for those students who have needs that are better met there.
