Carmine School is a Kindergarten- Year 12 school that caters for students with special medical needs from disadvantaged backgrounds. It is situated in Sydney's norther region. In a typical year up to 2,000 student study at the school. Students, mostly from regional and remote areas of New South Wales, attend the school for short periods of time, sometimes as short as three to four days. Students may return at intervals during the year depending on their special needs. Commonly a significant proportion of students are of Aboriginal descent. Classes were generally small and grouped into Stages (rather than years) as defined by the New South Wales Department of Education and Training.
