History

 

From January 1974 to December 1982, the needs of students with disabilities in the local area were met through a Special Education Unit that was located within the grounds of Beenleigh State School. In January 1983, Beenleigh Special School enrolled its first students. It was officially opened in October 1983 and grew significantly, resulting in new classroom buildings being opened in 1991,1997 and 2010, an extension to the Administration block in 2003, as well as various upgrades both to the administration block and facilities over many years.

Beenleigh Special School has a wide range of facilities and resources that enable the delivery of quality student programs. These include Home Economics facilities, a school Library that encompasses a learning technology area, Environmental Education facilities including a nursery (opened in 1997) and recycling compound, and a Snoezelen Room.  The school has three school buses that are in constant use by students accessing community based programs. All of the classrooms are air-conditioned and have interactive whiteboards installed.
