We have approximately 135 students enrolled across our campuses.

Teaching and support staff work in professional learning teams to plan units of work, class programs, excursions, camps, inclusion programs etc. They share ideas and expertise and engage in a wide range of professional learning to support and enhance the learning of our students. There is collaboration with staff from Therapy ACT as well as a range of government and non-government agencies.

We have early childhood and primary classes. Class sizes average 6 students per group (8 students in the ECC). Each class group is staffed by a teacher and at least one Learning Support Assistant (LSA). The numbers of staff within each class varies according to the number of students and their level of need. Students are placed into class groups based primarily on age but levels of need are also taken into consideration.
