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...


Science Fair Open Evening

What a fantastic evening it was! There were wonderful experiments, a science cafe with ice cream, candy floss and waffles, painting, exploding volcanoes, foam and fog. Thank you to all the families who attended - not sure who had the most fun, the children or parents and staff! Here are some photos ...



Senior School Ball

The ball, held last Friday at Zeal, in conjunction with senior students from Oaklynn Special School, was a great success. Some fabulous pictures below ...




 WOW! Thank you to the trusts community foundation ...

We warmly thank the Trusts Community Foundation for their very generous response to our recent application for funds to help fund our new playground at Glendene. They donated $50,000 to Arohanui to for this project! The work on the playground will begin later this year and we are looking forward to a wonderful outdoor area for the students at this satellite unit. 

Thank you TTCF!
