Welcome to The Ponds School

Believe Learn Achieve

The Ponds School is a newly established school for students with moderate or severe intellectual disabilities. Many of our students have additional disabilities, including autism, physical or sensory disabilities and/or emotional disturbance.

We opened in 2012 with 4 Kindergarten classes and have quickly grown to 19 classes from Kindergarten to Year 12 in 2017.

2015 saw the school move from its temporary beginnings in the grounds of Riverstone High School to a brand new purpose built facility in the suburb of The Ponds. Our new school provides the basis for the very best learning opportunities for all of our students  with the inclusion of state of the art technology, a hydrotherapy pool and specialised playground equipment.
  

Students at The Ponds School are exposed to the same syllabus and curriculum content as all students in NSW. Activities are modified to suit the varying individual needs of all students and teachers utilise many forms of adaptive technologies to ensure the very best educational outcomes.

We strongly believe that the greatest educational benefits for our students come from strong community ties and supporting families throughout their child's educational journey.


Our Vision: The Ponds School provides quality, individualised and meaningful education in a safe and caring environment. The Ponds School supports families, encourages independence and assists students to become valued members of the community both now and into the future.

 
At The Ponds School, in conjunction with our charity Making It Happen - for children with disabilities, we will continue to raise funds to enhance the learning opportunities for all of our student population. The Ponds School is registered as a Deductible Gift Recipient with the Australian Taxation Office and all cash donations are receipted and tax deductible.
