Principal's Message

Welcome to St Gabriel’s a Catholic school in the Edmund Rice tradition for students with a hearing impairment and other special needs. We very much appreciate your visit to our website and hope the experience is informative.

St Gabriel’s is a specialist educational facility catering for over 80 students with a range of disabilities. We are inspired by the very strong belief that the young people we serve have a fundamental right to a quality education that is meaningful, purposeful and hope-filled. At St Gabriel’s we believe that all children have great potential and an enormous amount to offer the world and our work as an educational community is to support students to achieve this.

St Gabriel’s is an educational institution that seeks to live out the Gospel values of respect, acceptance and inclusivity amongst all members of the community. We seek to give active witness to the four Touchstones of our Charter as an Edmund Rice Education Australia school. These touchstones: Liberating Education, Inclusive Community, Gospel Spirituality and Justice Solidarity form an inseparable part of who we are.

When considering St Gabriel’s as the right school for your child, I’d ask you to take time to explore the website as it offers insights into the culture, values and ethos of the school as well as practical and detailed information about our educational and pastoral programs.

I would encourage and welcome you to make direct contact with us to arrange a visit and experience first hand the many possibilities available to your child at St Gabriel’s School.

Mr. Jon Franzin, Principal
