Wilson Centre Unit

Northern Health School has units in various locations across our region.

In late 2004, the Ministry of Education requested NHS to set up a new unit at the health funded Wilson Centre in Takapuna to incorporate the rehabilitation unit previously attached to Wilson School. This decision was made because students attending the rehabilitation unit met the regional health school admission criteria.

The NHS Wilson Centre unit, based in a teaching space at Wilson Centre, is separate from Wilson School and is independently administered and funded. NHS Wilson unit staff have close working relationships with Wilson Centre therapists and with the staff of Wilson School. NHS Wilson Centre unit staff provide education services to students temporarily resident at Wilson Centre who are unable to attend their regular school because of their high health needs.

While some students are seen in their Wilson Centre residential setting, most attend the teaching space in the mornings. There are generally 5 to 6 students in attendance at any one time but these numbers fluctuate depending on admissions to the centre. Student length of stay in the Wilson Centre varies but most students attend the NHS Wilson Centre for six to eight weeks.

ICT is an integral part of Northern Health School’s administration, programme development and student record activities. Teachers in all of our units must be prepared to use ICT extensively in the course of their work.
