About our school

Our school is located in Revesby, in South Western Sydney.

The student population draws from a wide area south of the harbour. Most students travel to school by special transport provided by the government. Our school caters for students aged 4 years to 18 years with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities, Autism and physical disabilities.

Broderick Gillawarna School works collaboratively within the school community to provide a comprehensive individualised education to teach students academic, communication, mobility, living skills, leisure and vocational skills.  The programs are designed to enable students to reach their potential and lead a fulfilling life as a member of the community.

Unique features of this school include:

  • A community-based learning approach - enables regular local and wider community access to enhance students' life skills.
  • Key learning areas - adapted and modified to meet the learning needs of all students.
