Welcome to Suneden
Welcome to Suneden Special School. It is a privilege to introduce you to an educational facility where a team of highly qualified, skilled and dedicated staff work together to provide a quality education for students with special needs.
Suneden, founded in 1943, is a non-government, low fee paying, non-denominational school for children with intellectual and multiple physical disabilities aged 5-21 years. The school is located in Mitchell Park, a central-southern suburb of Adelaide, South Australia.
Suneden caters for 60-65 students, and provides a caring and educationally stimulating environment with small class sizes, excellent facilities and a high staff ratio. A range of educational programmes are tailored to suit the needs of the individual students. These programmes are supported by our on-site Speech and Occupational Therapist.
Suneden has close links with a number of external agencies to assist with the provision of support and programmes, these include Novita, Minda Inc., Bedford Industries, Autism SA and the Down Syndrome Society. The school offers practicum placements to students undertaking University Degrees including Teaching, Psychology, Speech Pathology, Occupational Therapy and Disabilities Studies.
Suneden’s philosophy is based on the principle that all students have a right to:
- A safe and caring environment
- To be treated with respect and dignity
- An appropriate curriculum to meet their needs
If you would like to discuss your child’s educational needs, please arrange an appointment time with me.
I look forward to meeting you.
