St Gabriel's School General Appeal


About Us

St Gabriel's is a special school catering for students with an intellectual disability in the mild to moderate range, sensory disablility and autism. The school is situated in Castle Hill and has a proud history of providing special education for over 95 years and continues today by offering individualised, exciting programs to our students. Our specialist teaching staff and purpose built environment allows students from Kindergarten to Year 12 to achieve success through a focus on communication, literacy, numeracy and social skills.

St Gabriel’s operates on a mainstream school model yet also has very specific programs in place in order to meet our students changing developmental needs. Demand for placements is increasing. This is attributable to an increased awareness and diagnosis of special needs in children early in their development and our schools’ reputation for delivering a caring and challenging education for students with special needs.

Developing and implementing these programs are costly. Take away government funding and fees, and there is a financial shortfall per student each year. Much of the funding for specific learning programs is made possible through the generosity of businesses and community fundraising. The reliance on this has become essential with the added uncertainty of future government funding.

Through your support the school can continue to deliver its mission of providing each child the opportunity to be educated and succeed.
