St Kieran has supported students with a disability since parents in the early 1980’s requested supported from the newly formed Catholic Education Office to set up a support centre for the northern suburbs at the school.

In 2011 the needs of our youngest students led to the development of an early intervention program with students with a disability in the 3-year-old to 6-year-old age range. This led to the creation of a CEOWA supported program that has evolved in the current regional early intervention program that supports students enrolled in a catholic school in the metropolitan area.

The "C Centre: supports the most vulnerable students in their first years of education, preparing them for reintegration into a mainstream environment in their home school. Since 2011 the centre has successfully integrated over 60 students back into a mainstream setting across a number of Catholic schools in both the Northern and Southern suburbs of Perth.

Students with a disability are well supported within our school with a mix of support centre, small group work and individual programs being utilised depending on the particular needs of each student at that point of time.
