Welcome to Halswell Residential College

The purpose of Halswell Residential College is to provide special education within a residential setting for students who need significant curriculum adaptation due to an underlying intellectual impairment and whose educational, social and emotional needs, including behaviour, cannot be met in their current environment.

Students will be in year levels 6-10 on enrolment. Enrolment at the College provides the opportunity for students to develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes in a safe and nurturing environment that will assist them to return to their community in the most effective manner, living as independent a life as possible.



Referrals to the College are now through the Ministry of Education's Intensive Wraparound Service (IWS).
