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 are now on Facebook ...

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!
