Sale & District Specialist School is the only specialist setting servicing a broad area extending across the Shire of Wellington catering for children from 5 to 18 years of age all of whom have an intellectual disability.
The school is a new, state of the art, purpose built facility that has extensive and well equipped teaching and learning spaces, complemented by vast attractive, secure grounds. We aim to be recognised as an educational setting of first choice for students who have an intellectual disability.
Our school supports students to achieve their social, emotional, physical and intellectual potential and develops students' habits to be lifelong learners. We encourage students to develop the level of independence, life skills, self-worth and confidence necessary to live as an integral part of the community.
The school offers comprehensive programs focussing on individual learning goals following the Victorian Curriculum. VCAL foundation is offered at the Senior Secondary level. Opportunity exists for students to take part in integration programs, via dual enrolment with a mainstream primary or secondary school.
All members of the staff team are committed to ensuring each student has the opportunity to succeed in all areas of their school life.
Our school consists of five separate buildings built around a central courtyard. To add to our already extensive facilitities, there are plans to add a Hydrotherapy Spa in the near future.
