Special Programmes

Back to Overview


Our Special Programmes form an integral part of the teaching and learning activities.

ERO put it this way…

… A diverse range of special programmes is offered…and form an integral and inclusive part of the teaching and learning activities. They offer all students opportunities to further develop academic, cultural, sporting and social skills and facilitate positive interactions between students at all levels.

Roseneath School ERO Report 2017


Our programmes include the following:

Primary Enterprise Programme (PrEP)

PrEP is a programme where the children create a market society. They set up businesses to make products which they market and sell. They have a government, a bank (with Roseneath currency) and a warehouse which sells raw materials. PrEP runs every second or third year.

Te reo me ona tikanga Māori

We have a Roseneath School Te reo me ona Tikanga Māori Plan, written in partnership with mana whenua through our participation in Kura Ahurea. Kura Ahurea is a cultural support kaupapa that provides a Te Ātiawa ki Te Whanganui a Tara/Taranaki Whānui perspective on local historical narratives, tikanga and kawa.

Children across the school have regular te reo lessons, cultural stories, and learn about the tikanga (cultural practices) for our area, as well as our local histories.

The Leadership licence

Our Year 7s and 8s have opportunities to earn their Leadership Licence, working through from Learner Level (supervised by an adult) through to their full Licence (working independently as a small group). Students work in groups to plan trips that support their interests and current learning, researching the timetables, and making contact with sites around Wellington to organise their trip. They head out on their trip, and share their learning with the class when they return. This programme encourages senior students to develop initiative and independence. 


Roseneath students take part in the interschool Artsplash festival on a regular basis. Our students participate in various combinations of the Wearable Arts, Choir, Visual Art and Dance sections.

Rōpū Houses

All students are members of a house team. These teams encourage friendships and learning connections between younger and older students.

We have Rōpū Houses:
