We make many transitions in our lives but one of the most critical is our move from school into adulthood.

For some students the transition from school is probably the most crucial process for determining how the rest of their lives will unfold.

At Ruru Specialist school we ensure that
  • the student is at the centre of the transition process
  • Families and Whanau are fully involved in the process
  • relevant and current information on post-school options is shared with the student and their Family/whanau
  • transitioning is a coordinated and recognised process with schools, parents, students and agencies working in partnership.
