Welcome to The Salvation Army Independent Schools

ABOUTUS

YOS Lawnton and YOS Lawnton (Riverview) are part of The Salvation Army Independent Schools located in the North Brisbane and Ipswich areas. 

 

Both schools work with young people aged between 14 and 18 years, that have disengaged from mainstream education due to individual, relational or social factors, to help them re-commence their education. 

 

YOS Lawnton and YOS Lawnton (Riverview) currently operate for students in years 10 to 12.  Our team of teachers, teacher aides and youth workers support young people who are struggling with adversities, such as mental and physical health, legal matters and other educational barriers.  Every opportunity for extra assistance needed to overcome individual adversities and build independence is made available to each young person.

 

The staff at TSA Independent School advocate tirelessly for those who may not be aware of their rights in education, or the resources that are available to them. Young people who have missed large portions of school find it difficult to navigate through the job market, Centrelink services, the legal system and so on.  The staff at our schools provide education, training and employment pathways as well as advocating for young people, especially those who do not have the support of an adult in their lives at home.

The Salvation Army distributes 100% of all Commonwealth and State education funding to the schools for the benefit of our students and the communities we serve. The funding is worked out for each school at a Commonwealth level in accordance with the Australian Education Act 2013 section 78 4(a) under Division 2 of Part 3.
