OUR SCHOOL

 

The Centre was established in 1985 and is a K – 12 school that has a split campus. The primary school classes are located on the grounds of the Avonvale Primary School and the Secondary class is located at Northam SHS. The Centre has its own administration and budget and works in co-operation with the school on the same campus to provide the best educational outcomes for all students.

Students are offered a placement at Avonvale Education Support Centre after being assessed by a School Psychologist or Paediatrician.  All students who attend at the centre have been identified with a cognitive impairment ranging from mild to multi/severe. A diagnosis may include Intellectual Disability, Autism Spectrum Disorder (includes PDD NOS) or Global Development Delay.
