We at Maitai Specialist School are pleased to have a close and supportive relationship with our host schools and to be part of the Henley School and Waimea Intermediate School campus. Our students are able to be included in regular school life whilst still having the support of a special education network. In our purpose built building, students are supported in their learning by specialist teachers, teacher aides, and weekly sessions with our Music Therapist, Art Specialist, Speech Language Therapist, and Occupational Therapist.
Satellite classes are an important part of our school system. Not only do they provide greater choice for family and whanau of young people with special educational needs, they enable students in host schools the opportunity to get to know our students as people in their own right and this helps them to understand that the more we are different, the more we are the same.
