Our School

Principal's welcome

Welcome to our website and to our wonderful school.

Our school is growing in student numbers with approximately 109 students anticipated in 2016. This growth is mainly due to a significant increase in student numbers at our sister school, Geebung Special but also increased enrolments from students from mainstream special education programs. This growth means we are going through an extensive facilities upgrade process with additional new classrooms, refurbishment of existing spaces, a new hall and various specialist projects. The growth in student numbers has also resulted in an increase in staffing levels. In excess of 60 staff and 30 volunteers support our students every week.

 The school is unique in that it is one of only two special schools in Queensland that provides programs only for secondary aged students with disabilities. This uniqueness has enabled the school to develop and maintain a focus on learning experiences tailored to preparing students for post-school life. As such, all programs are centred on ensuring students are ready to ‘transition’ into the broader community as independently as their capability enables.

The moment our students set foot in our school we are focused on preparing them for the moment they leave. With this in mind all programs are centred on ensuring students are ready to ‘transition’ into the broader community as independently as their capability enables.

Once again welcome and I hope you enjoy navigating through our website and learning more about out school.

Kind regards

Chesleigh Hargreaves

Principal
