THE a8 Mission

To activate the inner potential of each child and young person to meaningfully participate in and contribute to their community.


A world leading inclusive experience for children and young people (0-25 years old) with additional needs to activate and grow to their full social, emotional and physical potential.


To initiate, innovate and implement extra-curricular activities, therapeutic programs, and services that enable our members and their families to achieve their goals and aspirations.


Program Benefits

All programs are carefully designed and regularly fine-tuned to fit individual and class requirements. Over time you can expect to see your child progressing in the areas we are working on throughout each session. We are very fortunate to have many special schools, allied health professionals and therapists across Brisbane recommend our programs for the social, emotional and physical benefits—providing a truly holistic approach to wellbeing.  

Beyond the Classroom

Active Eight is a welcoming and supportive community that accepts all students and is willing to work with families to make the necessary adaptions to ensure the benefits of group activities can be enjoyed by all. Regularly attending classes is not only beneficial for students but also parents and siblings, as they connect with other like-minded families.
