The process of enrolling in a Queensland Special School is different to enrolling in a State Primary or Secondary School. There are a number of steps, which need to be followed before the enrolment takes place.
If your child already attends a school (either Special School or State Primary or Secondary School), and you are considering enrolling in our school, your first conversation needs to be with your school Guidance Officer. They are aware of the process of eligibility and enrolling in a Special School and can help you with the process. Guidance Officers will be aware of your child's level of functioning and diagnosis and will be able to determine if Special School is an appropriate path for your child.
If your child is not attending a Queensland State School or Early Childhood Development Program (ECDP), then you can ring our school and a Deputy Principal or Guidance Officer can help you.

If the Guidance Officer, or psychologist feels that your child would meet the eligibility criteria, please call us and come for a visit.
Sometimes people have never been to a Special School and it is useful to see how we operate, meet some teachers and have a tour around our school. It is also a wonderful opportunity for you to tell us about your child and their educational needs. It is a good opportunity for you, as the parent or carer, to see if our school would be the most suitable schooling environment for your child. We can explain how our program works, and explain the next steps in this two part process.
