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
registered with NESA.
Elouera Special School provides education to
School aged children 4-18 who have a moderate to severe disability, autism (with
an intellectual disability) 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 class room has access to this technology making the
Elouera Special School a modern learning environment. Every class room at the Elouera Special
School has its own interactive Smartboard. These TV's (like a huge IPad) bring a whole new
dimension to teaching and represent the biggest change since the invention of a
black board. Our staff and students love the interactive qualities and how
students can become involved with and not just observers of the days lessons.

discuss with you your child's needs and tell you about the school and make a
time for you to meet the school staff. If you like what you see we can
commence the enrolment process. We have a maximum of only 34 students so
class sizes are small to better meet students needs.
MULTI PURPOSE HALL
In 2019 we added a multi purpose hall to the Elouera Special
School that also gave us all weather access to the covered playground.
This was a significant project that largely completed the master plan for the
school that was created many years earlier.
Built by local builder Bryant Constructions at the cost of
$545,000 of which the Federal Government provided us $300,000 it was our largest
project yet. The following series of photo's were taken by drone by by
Cody James a SLSO at the Elouera Special School.
