Special Education Unit
The primary section has another important mission, the special education unit. New teachers have appointed, and the unit has been renovated to cater for the needs of the special needs children. Zahira College Mawanella is the only one school that offers facilities to cases like Downs Syndrome, cerebral parsley, mental retardation, hyper activities and autism. Although, serious cases are not handled, Zahira is a place for parents with such children to fall upon.
In the upper school, the special needs children are treated separately, or most of the times an inclusive education approach is adopted by the specially trained teachers.
