Our focus is to ensure that every day, every student in every classroom is learning and achieving. Our school offers an individualised approach to teaching and catering for students whilst ensuring we align with the Australian Curriculum.
Our vision encompasses the belief that students are able to learn in a variety of environments. Our students often participate in local community events including the ANZAC Day Parade, Sailors with disabilities, local athletics carnivals and regular visits to the local library, shopping centres, parks and sports facilities. Our transition students thoroughly enjoy and are involved in work experience programs.
Our students at Rockhampton Special School have access to a range of technology to support learning. All classrooms have interactive whiteboards, individual students have access to alternative and augmentative communication systems and iPads are used to support student learning and communication.
Our school has a multi-sensory environment (Sensory Room) where students are able to access to assist them to desensitise from their world and provides opportunities for calming therapy. We also have a bicycle track, a secure playground and an oval to ensure students have access to gross motor, play and social skills. Some of the students also have access to a hydrotherapy pool where students have specifically designed programs through referrals with the Physiotherapist.
We thrive on networking and developing relationships with the parents and wider community. Our P&C are very active and provide avenues for parents to interact and be involved in school decision making processes.
