  1. About this service

    "Melton Specialist School is a State school that provides quality educational programs for students with a wide range of intellectual disabilities. Some of the students have physical disabilities as well. The school caters for students aged from 5 – 18 years of age. Students may attend full-time or part-time. The part-time students also attend local primary and secondary schools.

    The school has a very positive, safe, caring and friendly environment. It is located near kindergartens, primary and secondary schools, recreational facilities and shopping centres. All the classrooms have stimulating displays and have heating and air conditioning facilities, ensuring that there are optimum conditions for learning. The grassy playground features attractive shrubs and trees, adventure play equipment that caters for the wide age range of the students attending the school, a covered verandah, a modern shelter shed, large sand pits and a bike track. A high fence around the playground provides security and safety for the students. A special feature of the grounds is the very attractive and stimulating sensory garden.

    The Department of Education provides free school transport to students in the Melton/Bacchus Marsh areas, provided that they attend the school at least three days per week."
