Welcome to the Special Education

& Inclusion Department

Inclusive Education is about embracing all, making commitment to do whatever it takes to provide each student in the community an inalienable right to belong, not to be excluded. Inclusion assumes that living and learning together is a better way that benefits everyone, not just children who are labelled as having a difference.
