The school is committed to offering students a safe and supportive environment which allows students a chance to explore a range of activities and interest areas.

Dookie Campus has 4 full time staff, which consists of 2 teaching staff and 2 teaching assistants. The school has two classrooms with a maximum of six students in each classroom. We also have specialist teachers who visit weekly to take students in music and therapeutic art lessons. Further to this, our students participate weekly in specialised yoga sessions with our yoga instructor.

All students have individualised learning plans with specific goals related to the academic, social and emotional learning needs of the individual student. We take a holistic view when planning and encourage paediatricians and allied health staff to participate and contribute to the individuals learning plan.

Our school is located within the grounds of the Melbourne University Agricultural College – Dookie. We have access to and use a range of facilities on campus such as: an outdoor swimming pool, gym, basketball courts, Mt Major access and canteen (special occasions). The campus is quiet and provides a great space for our students.
