Established in 1954 by the concerned parents of four children, the school was established with a specific focus on children with Cerebral Palsy and has grown to an enrolment of over 420 pupils, some 120 staff members and a full time bus service provided by a fleet of 6 busses. It is a remarkable story of how a need developed into a necessity. This school has 117 staff members, consisting of educators, psychologists, therapists, medical staff, librarians, administration staff, fundraisers, class assistants, estate manager, drivers, cleaners and groundsmen. Of these only fifty-seven (57) staff members are paid by the Government. At the school they provide a wide variety of extra-mural activities including school sports such as soccer, mini-cricket, swimming, hockey etc. Learners are also taken on various cultural outings during the course of the year, and are entertained by groups coming to the school. 


Depending on the specific needs of a learner, therapy is given on an individual or group basis. Therapies include:
Physiotherapy Speech and Language Therapy
Occupational Therapy
As an intern in any the above departments you will work alongside the therapists at the school who complement the work of the teachers. Most children leave their classroom for treatment but Occupational and Speech therapists also conduct weekly group sessions in classrooms, particularly in the lower grades, where developmental needs might be quite similar. Interns assist with both the individual sessions and the weekly group sessions.
