We were able to support the Modbury Special School with their items for their Dinner Dance Fundraiser in 2009.
They have an enrolment of more than 160 students ranging from Reception to Senior Secondary. All students have an intellectual disability with a significant number of students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). There are also a number of students with physical, sensory and health related disabilities.
Modbury Special School has classes across 4 sites, all within walking distance of each other. Across the campus specific options for students with disabilities have been created:
- the Correa Learning Unit for students with autism with significant sensory needs;
- a class at the Modbury South Primary School and;
- a Pathways Project for Junior and Senior Secondary students at Modbury High School.
The original Modbury Special School site has undergone significant upgrading of its facilities which give students access to purpose built Teaching and Learning spaces, Living Skills, Information Technology, Art and Gym facilities.
