ELOUERA SPECIAL SCHOOL
Located in the country town of Cootamundra the Elouera
Special School is an educational centre of excellence providing
individualised supports to students with a disability from Kinder to Year
12. The school is located in Scott Avenue, a quiet cul-de-sac near the
retirement village and the Cootamundra High School. Built on large
grounds with room to expand, we have developed facilities that are second to
none in the region.
Providing individual tailored
programs to all of its students in the Junior, Middle and Senior class rooms, Elouera Special school caters for students from
Kinder Early Stage 1 to Year 12 Stage 6 Life Skills Curriculum and is fully accredited with the NSW Board of Education.
Elouera Special School provides education to
School aged children 4-18 who have a moderate to severe disability, autism or
multiple disabilities. Being part of a larger organisation our students
also enjoy a comprehensive transition to work or transition to Community
Participation in their final years at School.
Students from the Cootamundra, Young,
Temora and Harden areas may qualify for Government funded taxi services
that bring your child from home to School and back again, this also applies for
those living out of town on a property.
Every child attending our
school has an individual education plan that identifies that child's needs and ensures
their work is appropriate to their needs. Every plan is worked out in
consultation with the family ensuring they can assist their child to maximise
their potential. Most importantly, we make learning fun while meeting
Department of Education requirements.
At the Elouera
Special School families are part of the program and are fully involved.
