A 1966 publication of the Child Welfare Department described the boys at Yarra Bay House as being 'mostly dull or educationally retarded', although 'many would be suitable for foster home placement if foster homes were available.' There was an internal school at Yarra Bay House. In 1977 the Yarra Bay House was listed in the Annual Report of the Department of Youth and Community Services as being 'prepared to provide special resocialization programmes for intellectually handicapped people who are under the Minister's guardianship'.
