St Gabriel's was established in Castle Hill in 1922 by the Christian Brothers. It was a residential home for boys who had a hearing impairment, aged from 5 to 17 years. St Gabriel's stopped serving as a residential school in 1973, and became a co-educational day school. In 2014 it was still a school, but offered a range of programmes to support children with hearing impairment, as well as disabilities in the autism spectrum.
