YOS Lawnton Campus and YOS Goodna Campus are part of YOS Special Assistance School within The Salvation Army Youth Outreach Service (YOS). 


YOS Lawnton and YOS Goodna campuses are about working with young people aged 15-18 who have disengaged from mainstream education due to individual, relational and social factors, to re-commence their education within our school. 


YOS Independent School currently offers students years 10, 11 and 12.  Our team of teachers and youth workers support young people who are struggling with adversities such as mental and physical health, legal and other educational barriers.  Every opportunity for extra assistance they may need to overcome these adversities and build independence is made available to young people.


The staff at YOS 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.  Workers at both campuses 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.

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.

  • As we transition back to school after distance learning during Covid-19, there are some changes to timetables until the end of term (Friday 26 June). There will still be some distance learning during this time to ensure compliance with social distancing and to keep everyone safe. A new timetable for all year levels and classes will be sent home Friday 29 May along with a letter to parents/carers. We would like to thank all our school community for their support over the last couple of months
