Welcome to Arohanui
We hope you enjoy looking around our website where you will find information about our school, our students and our learning community. Arohanui is a special place where all learners are valued, included and celebrated...
We welcome all our students and their families back to Arohanui for 2015. We are looking forward to a busy, productive and fun year.
We are having a powhiri welcome ceremony for new students and their families on Friday 6 March, 11.30 am at Base School. All families are welcome to attend this event.
We now have a school Facebook page! Search ‘Arohanui Special School’. Our page is set up so we can share with staff and families photos, stories and information about the great things that are happening across the school. I would like to encourage all staff and families to 'Like' our page. Thank you to those who have already done so - we have now passed the '100' mark!
Matariki and Hangi
Our Matariki event was a great success. All our senior and intermediate classes and many whanau and staff attended. There was a presentation by students and a rousing haka, followed by the hangi which was plentiful and delicious! Thank you to all the students, staff and families who worked hard preparing and cooking the food, and presenting waiata and performances to make this such a wonderful occasion. We also warmly thank Tegel Foods for their generous donation of the chicken for the hangi.
Pictured are students helping prepare the vegetables for the hangi, the Base 3 Matakriki performance, a wonderful haka, and serving and eating the delicious hangi.
