St. Gabriel’s School & Centre is located in Dooradoyle Limerick. We are a school for children with physical/multiple disabilities and are one of only five similar schools in the country. The age range of the children who attend our school is 4 – 18 yrs, primary and post-primary levels. The pupil/teacher ratio is 6:1, with support from our SNAs. The children have access to all relevant therapies during school hours, including O.T., physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, hydrotherapy and nursing support.
St.Gabriel’s Centre provides two teams of highly qualified clinical specialists who deliver a range of essential health-related therapies and interventions. Up to 600 children with multiple disabilities from within the region attend St.Gabriel’s Centre on an outpatient basis.
St.Gabriel’s hydrotherapy pool opened in 2009.The pool was designed for therapy and rehabilitation purposes in particular to meet the very specific needs of children with disabilities. It has gone from strength to strength over the years. It has evolved into an outstanding social enterprise and is an essential resource used by many adults and children from voluntary, community and disability groups within the region.
