The school was built to accommodate the growing amount of children in need of a proper education. The South Australian School for the Deaf was founded on October 1, 1874 by William Townsend. Townsend recognized the need for a school in the region, and used his political power to raise the funding. Waratah Deaf and Dumb institute for girls was opened on October 8, 1875.
Sister Gabriel Hogan from Ireland taught at the school, and Catherine Sullivan was the first student. The school was opened to provide a Catholic education to deaf girls. Auslan (Australian Sign language) became officially recognized as a language by the Australian Government. The recognition of Auslan significantly impacted the education of Deaf children, by approving the use of Auslan in any classroom.

It was produced by Trevor Johnston to help the public learn more about Auslan and the Deaf Community. In 1860, Thomas Pattison from Scotland, established the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children. Queensland Adult Deaf and Dumb Mission was established in 1903.
