Welcome to Hervey Bay Special School. This school opened in
1986 with nineteen students and has grown to one hundred students. To enrol in
our school, a student must have an intellectual disability. Several of our
students have additional disabilities such as autism and/or sensory
disabilities such as physical or visual disabilities.
Our school is staffed with highly skilled, professional
teachers and teacher aides. The school focuses on collaborative planning and
delivery of the Australian Curriculum through highly individualised plans such
as Individual Support Plans, Senior Education Transition plans and PATH plans
(Promoting Alternatives for Tomorrow with Hope).
Occupational, physio and speech therapy services enhance our
school motto “Meeting Individual Needs”. The city of Hervey Bay is located
three and a half hours north of Brisbane. The environment is clean and fresh
with a sub-tropical climate. A local attraction is the ease of access to the
world famous Fraser Island.
