Welcome to the Riverland Special School

The Riverland Special School provides education programs suited to the needs of
Reception to Year 12+ students, identified with an intellectual disability and eligible
for a special school placement. Enrolments come from across the Riverland and Upper Mallee district.
The curriculum provides students with opportunities to develop their abilities through
a range of learning areas including the arts, design and technology, health and physical activity, science, society and environment, daily living skills and work experience.

These, and cross-curricular activities including Duke of Edinburgh Awards, Special
Guides and Special Olympics, provide a pathway to a suitable post-school option
for each student. Our curriculum delivery is enhanced by collaboration with outreach services from organisations providing support for students with special physical or
sensory needs, autism spectrum disorders or Down Syndrome.

The school works closely with families, local Disability Employment Services and state government agencies such as Disability SA, to ensure that each student accesses post school options including employment opportunities and day option programs for those unable to work.
