Wirrabirra Education Support Centre (6062)

School Overview

Wirrabirra Education Support Centre together with Wirrabirra Primary
forms Wirrabirra School - an integrated campus situated on Corfield Street, Gosnells.

Wirrabirra ESC is a level 3 independent public school that caters for approximately 36 students with special needs from years 1-6. Students attending the Centre come from Huntingdale, Thornlie and Gosnells and are placed at the Centre and must meet criteria set by the Department of Education. Transport is available by bus for those students who are within the catchment area. Applications for school bus services are made online directly to the Public Transport Authority.

Wirrabirra ESC is committed to providing a safe, secure, learning environment in which students are given the opportunity to develop their individual potential and to acquire skills, attitudes and knowledge to enable them to become responsible members of a changing society. Values are incorporated into all aspects of learning. Great care is taken to ensure students learn in the most appropriate learning environment.

The Support Centre is an integral part pf Wirrabirra School and the two facilities share a comon purpose, joint P&C body and School Board. We operate 4 classrooms and students participate in integrated activities within the school.

We have developed a collaborative teaching community which encourages sharing of skills, self reflection and shared responsibility for behaviour management of all students across the Wirrabirra campus.

Each classroom is staffed with a teacher and numerous Education Assistants to ensure optimum learning happens for all students.

We value parents as partners in education and have an open door policy for all visitors.
