Celebrating ability through high expectations

Welcome to Lucas Gardens School

Lucas Gardens School is a Department of Education school in the South Western Sydney Region located in Canada Bay. The school provides educational programs for students with high and moderate support needs, including intellectual and physical disabilities, sensory impairments and complex medical conditions in a newly constructed 'state of the art' facility.

Lucas Gardens School currenlty operates 8 classes from Kindergarten to Year 12 and retains 2 places for part time enrolments for students in respite care at Summer Hill Respite Centre, Ashfield.

Lucas Gardens School has a diverse student population from a range of socio economic backgrounds, 62.5% of the student population being from language backgrounds other than English (LBOTE).

A dedicated, enthusiastic and talented staff work in partnership with parents/carers, therapists and the school community to achieve positive learning outcomes for all students.

A significant increase in the use of technology including iPads and smart boards across school programs is ensuring that students are developing communication, fine motor and literacy and numeracy skills. These essential skills will take our students beyond the classroom and into the community.

Lucas Gardens School also offers unique learning opportunities through programs including hydrotherapy, community access and school funded physiotherapy and speech pathology. The School enjoys strong support from service organisations and the wider community resulting in enhanced resources.

The fragrant sensory garden, liberty swing and outdoor play equipment help create a unique learning environment to support students to achieve their individual learning goals and maximise their independence.

Our priorities include facilitating student autonomy, quality curriculum implementation, best practice teaching and learning as well as student development, improving student learning outcomes and wellbeing.
