The Wirreanda Unit and Special Class is a place of learning and development for up to 28 secondary school students with disabilities.
With capacity for 16 students, students in the Unit are shared between 2 classes, with 1 teacher and 1 SSO per class.
The Special Class has capacity for 12 students taught by 1 teacher and 1 SSO, with all 3 classes being supported by a Coordinator.
Our focus is to provide a nurturing, supportive and inclusive learning environment for our students and their families. We value the role of our families as integral partners in our students learning journey as they develop independence and prepare for post school life.
Our students engage in individualised programs, developed to enhance their skills in literacy and numeracy and provide them with skills essential to leading productive and fulfilling lives beyond school.
We foster the development of friendships and encourage and support integration with mainstream students and staff through specialised programs.
Entry and eligibility into the Disability Unit and Special Class at Wirreanda Secondary School is determined externally through the Special Options process. Please contact your current school to discuss eligibility as part of this process.
