What we do

We provide special needs education to the highest possible standard. In doing so, the staffs strive to meet the children’s learning, physical, psychological and medical needs, and to help them to develop the knowledge and skills required for their future. The staff follows a teamwork approach, with everyone working together, and working with the child’s family is also very important. Thus, the school strives to render all the facilities needed to satisfy both the physical and psychological needs of the students.
