Our community

Aspley Special School is located within the Brisbane North District of Department of Education (DoE). The student catchment area is geographically very large, spreading from the inner city to Eatons Hill, Sandgate and Bracken Ridge. Therefore the school does not have a ‘local’ community in the way that schools usually do. 

Despite the geographical spread of our student's homes, we are a community hub for our surrounding suburbs. Community involvement in the school is centred around our Kingfisher Recycling Centre and Coffee Shop.

 

Our school has wonderful relationships with numerous community groups that provide support to our students for targeted projects – in particular the Ridley Road Mens Shed, Kedron-Wavell Services Club, Geebung-Zillmere RSL Club, Aspley Orchid Society, Aspley Lions and the Variety Club.

We also have nurtured a number of corporate partnerships with local businesses especially Refund Home Loans, De Bortoli Wines, FoodFX, Bunnings and The Good Guys Carseldine.

These relationships have enabled the purchase and maintenance of a range of resources including buses, science equipment, our school gym, mini golf course and much more that enhance the quality of the school environment and promote student learning and engagement.
