The Rainbow classes in Kilcoona NS caters for children with special needs education within Kilcoona NS. The classes offer an Autism specific learning environment within the mainstream school.
Maria, the Junior Rainbow Room teacher, together with the parents of children attending the Rainbow rooms did extensive fundraising to create a special education environment for the children.
Over a few different phases as funds allowed, we added 2 Cosy Cocoons, a Junior Table and 4 Stools in one area and in the play area we added a Full Vertical Board, 10 Traverse Boards, a Bridge, an A Frame, a Balance Beam, a Target Board, some target discs and for extra safety surface mats were added for the vertical board, the A frame and Bridge.
This has been one of our main installations to date and was carried out in 3 phases.
Special thanks to Maria and the teachers in Kilcoona for the dedication and great work they carry out for the school and students.
