Our School

Warrnambool Special Developmental School was first established in 1989 having being previously the school section of the Yalundah Disability Services.  In 1992 staff and students relocated into new premises situated in Hyland Street.

The school is a special educational setting presently catering for 140 students (aged between 5 and 18) who have an intellectual disability and have met the eligibility criteria for enrolment.  This criteria has been determined by the Department of Education as having an IQ of below 70 as well as significant deficits in adaptive behaviour and displaying a history and evidence of an ongoing problem, with the expectation of continuation during the school years.
