Learning Support

The support the school community provides in catering for students with special needs is a true reflection of the spirit of the school. The school population not only embraces our students but celebrates them. The success of the special needs unit is dependent upon this support and it enables us to provide the best outcomes for our students.

The mission of the learning centre is focused on fostering core values of performance and improvement that engender achievement and learning for everyone.

Positive beliefs and assumptions about the potential of students to learn and grow leads to high expectations for all students. Together we work toward a caring, safe and stimulating learning environment.

We assist in providing individual programs tailored to meet the needs of our students. Students learn best when instruction embraces their interests and engages them as active participants. We endeavour to provide students with the skills to help them become confident, capable members of our society.

Finding each person’s area of strength is the key to success. Support is provided on a one-to-one basis, in small groups and in the mainstream classroom

Students are able to access special provisions and work experience through the learning centre. These programs are a vital resource that ensure students have the opportunity to demonstrate their full potential and maximise their opportunities for the future.

The learning centre incorporates a variety of strategies in meeting the needs of its students and improving their academic, vocational and social outcomes.

 

The maths tutorial program is a valuable and integral part of the service that supports and encourages students to improve their skills in mathematics.

Life is never dull in the learning centre with all these programs running simultaneously and new initiatives being included daily. This is the nature of a dynamic and resourceful department eager to assist our students to not only reach their full potential but also develop their educational and social skills to enable them to take their place in the post school world with confidence, skills and determination. It is a privilege to be part of their journey.
