CASS is a place of learning for students who have an intellectual disability, many of whom also have physical, sensory or behavioural difficulties.  CASS serves the suburbs of Central Auckland. The students of the school range from 5 to 21 years of age.  All our students are funded under the Ministry of Education’s Ongoing Resourcing Scheme (ORS) for Special Education.

We provide quality learning programmes tailored to the individual needs of our students. Our classes typically have 5-8 students each with high teacher aide and therapy support alongside skilled and experienced teachers.

We also run a Specialist Teacher Outreach Service, which supports ORS-funded students to be fully included in their mainstream schools.


As you may be aware, a parent of students in 2 schools ( Not CASS or CASS host schools) is currently in isolation with COVID-19. We would like to stress that there is NO risk that students and staff have been exposed to COVID-19 from this student or parent.
The students has not been to Italy and has no symptoms. They are currently at home and will remain there until medically cleared.
The students were not infectious when they went to school.
As a result, all children can continue to attend school as usual.
General hygiene advice applies:
  • stay at home if unwell
  • wash your hands with soap frequently and when using a tissue,
  • dispose in a rubbish bin.
