Goodna Special School has been operating since 1974 and is a Band 11 school with 163 students currently enrolled. The school is divided into four junctures which are based on ages of our students.
Junior primary - Prep to year 2
Upper primary - Year 3 to year 6
Lower secondary - Year 7 to year 9
Senior secondary - Year 10 to year 12
Our school provides the highest possible quality of educational programs for the students who attend the school. The school has an explicit agenda to improve the quality of teaching and to lift the level of learning achievement by our students.
We have a small but dedicated group of volunteers who are on the P&C committee. They support our students through a range of fund raising activities and are able to provide valuable financial support for activities such as horse riding and school camps.
We have a range of specialist subject areas such as home economics, manual arts, visual arts and personal development. All students engage with the Australian Curriculum and we also have a focus on teaching functional literacy and numeracy in order to equip our students with skills that will assist them through out their lives.
