About Halswell Residential College

Building Bright Futures


At Halswell Residential College (HRC), students receive so much more than an ordinary education. We pride ourselves on creating a unique, exciting environment that embraces all types of learners and promotes growth both academically and personally. Students and families are also welcomed into a dynamic and supportive community.

At HRC we provide special education within a residential setting for students who need significant curriculum adaptation due to an underlying intellectual impairment and whose education, social and emotional needs, including behaviour, cannot be met in their current environment.

All staff at HRC are encouraged to undergo regular professional development.  All contact staff have recently completed the College of Applied Human Services Behaviour Technician certificate focusing on applied behaviour analysis and person-centred approaches.
