A Special school for the blind was established at Buranda on 4 February 1963. This school was accommodated in the building previously occupied by the Buranda Infants School which was amalgamated with Buranda Girls State School. The Special school was later called Narbethong Special School no. 3140. Prior to 1963, blind and deaf children were educated at the same school at Annerley.
