Weymouth Girls’ Training School

Weymouth was a  national institution school providing long term care it opened in September 1973 in the South of Auckland. Is was designed to meet a proven need for girls who were not able to be placed or treated in community settings such as foster homes or family homes. From 1977 Weymouth provided long-term care for delinquent girls who were committed by the Children and Young Persons Court. The home itself played no part in who was admitted or when.
