The Southern Regional Health School is a school for children who are sick.
We are a state school for students from Years 1 to 13 who are too ill to attend full-time education at their usual school. We teach students anywhere in the South Island.
Teachers at the Southern Regional Health School work with students, their families and their schools to keep up students' learning during their illness and to help them return to full-time education at their school as quickly as possible.
Do you think your child should come to the Southern Regional Health School? Read the page about who can be admitted to our school.

Linwood College Parent Comment:
"Teachers are motivating and provide hope. They are understanding of pain, tiredness and illness. Home visits have made all the difference. Lisa, her teacher, was 'simply tops'." Noeline Ellis, HOD Guidance, Linwood College.
"THANK YOU - we are immensely grateful for the wonderful service my son received from the SRHS. His teacher, Amanda (with her amazing array of skills) has done a brilliant job of teaching and motivating him and also helping to lessen the anxiety about attending school. The SRHS has made a huge difference for my son's future."
