Kurrambee School is located in the Penrith Valley School Education Area, in the Western Sydney Region of NSW. Kurrambee School caters for the educational needs of approximately 110 students with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities, from Kindergarten to Year 12. Many of the students have additional disabilities such as physical, sensory, behaviour, vision and hearing. Each student has an Individualised Educational Plan (I.E.P.) or Transition Plan (I.T.P.) that is developed in consultation with the family or caregivers. The I.E.P/I.T.P. includes skills that the student may use now or in the future and therefore encompasses their whole of life. Our programs are directed towards maximising students' learning for living and improving their quality of life. Kurrambee School promotes Quality Teaching including assessment and digital reporting. In 2007 Kurrambee School won the Regional Director's award for Assessment and Reporting. Our digital reports have been shared across special education settings throughout NSW. Positive Behaviour for Learning has been introduced at Kurrambee School with the full support of the staff.
Cooler Classrooms Program
The NSW Government is committed to providing students with healthy and comfortable learning environments. That’s why we’ve invested a record $500 million to provide a sustainable air conditioning program for NSW schools.
To ensure the NSW Government responds to the needs of students in the hottest parts of the State, we will provide air conditioning in classrooms and libraries at schools that experience a mean maximum January temperature of 30°C and above.
Schools that sit below 30°C will be able to apply for funding to receive air conditioning in their classrooms and libraries, allowing more schools to benefit from air conditioning than ever before.
This school has a mean maximum January temperature of 30°C and above and will form part of the NSW Government’s priority program. School Infrastructure NSW will be in contact with the school as the program continues to roll out.
