The Special Needs Unit was established in 2004 and was the first Disability Unit in a High School following the Principles of Conductive Education, catering for students with severe multiple disabilities.
The unit is designed with facilities for students to access curriculum as well as provide for their health and personal care needs. Situated within a High School allows for integration and interaction with mainstream schooling. Students with severe multiple disabilities require a balanced curriculum in which their cognitive, physical, communicative, emotional and social needs can be catered for. Students are encouraged to set their own learning goals. Through collaboration with Parents, Teachers, Conductors and Therapists specific learning goals for individual students are identified during the Negotiated Education Planning process.
