...a futures focused senior secondary college

Special Education Centre


Four annual events are flagship days for SEC students including:

  • Harmony Day
  • Palmerston and rural inter-school sports day
  • The end of year awards ceremony
  • Annual Christmas lunch and activity week

Students are actively involved in the organisation and delivery of all of these events, ensuring they are key dates in the calendar that all SEC students look forward to.


Reward, recognition and positive reinforcement are key at the SEC.

Each school week, a class hosts the whole school assembly and students who have achieved an exceptional personal goal or enjoyed individual success are rewarded at assemblies with a certificate of achievement. These certificates include Mathletics or Reading Eggs milestones.

Every term, the Member for Drysdale, Ms Lia Finocchiaro, presents an outstanding community all-rounder with an award.

At the End of Year assembly, all students are awarded a certificate recognising their gains for the year in a celebration of achievement.
