Support and resources

This is a responsibility that we take very seriously to ensure all children are supported whether they have learning difficulties, learning disabilities, impairments, special skills and interests, or are more able in specific area of schooling.  We aim to support every child’s level of ability.

To achieve this our teachers are skilled in the delivery of programs that both support the child’s current level of understanding and application, and ensure progress is made in the context of the child’s capability.

Our school is fortunate to have an experienced Guidance Officer who works closely with staff, students and parents to assess student needs and recommend specific programs.

Our student support committee meets weekly to discuss the needs of referred students. Children receiving support are monitored and adjustments are made according to their needs.
