Welcome to Burdekin Special School

As Principal of Burdekin School, I'd like to welcome you and your family to the Burdekin School family.

Our school ensures that every student succeeds in their individual educational pathway.  Students from Early Childhood Education through to Year 12 access our school.  All programs deliver quality educational learning opportunities through the Early Years Curriculum, ASDAN and VET studies.  Every year our staff strive to embed connectedness to real life experiences for each student.  Our goal is for all students to transition from school with the skills and knowledge required to be active and informed citizens in our community.

The Burdekin School culture reflects the practices of the Positive Behaviour for Learning and Kids Matter programs.  Support for students, parents, staff and other school community members is paramount at Burdekin School as "we all matter".  Our school mission is to "strive for independence". Through high expectations of ourselves and our students, the Burdekin School staff are dedicated to ensuring the success of every student in all aspects of their learning.

We are readily available to answer any questions.

Claire Cheyne
