Pioneering twice-exceptional education in Australia!

OUR VISION

is to foster an understanding in the world
where all twice-exceptional people recognise
their own boundless potential,
embrace their differences and are accepted
by others for their own uniqueness.

OUR MISSION

is to provide a world-leading education for
twice-exceptional young people.
As the first school of its kind in Australia,
Tombolo aims to provide an educational environment
that is one of the best places in the world for
twice-exceptional young people to develop and
flourish socially, emotionally and academically.

“Influential people are never satisfied with the status quo. They’re the ones who constantly ask, ‘What if?’ and ‘Why not?’ They’re not afraid to challenge conventional wisdom and they don’t disrupt things for the sake of being disruptive; they do it to make things better.”
