Kotuku Cottage is the name of our classroom at Wharenui School. We are in the middle of Wharenui School, close to the playground.
Our Enrolled School is a national school with Deaf Bilingual Provisions in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
Our Wharenui Provision caters for students of the same year groups/ages as Wharenui School. We use a combination of spoken language and NZSL at Wharenui Provision.
Our students participate with Wharenui School in a range of school activities including, sports days, assemblies, school wide mufti days for different causes, sausage sizzles for undraising, for example.
We have a mutually beneficial relationship with our partner school and operate as ‘A School within Schools’.
