A 7-12 Co-educational College founded by the Sisters of St Joseph 1883
The Learning Support Faculty implements a wide variety of strategies to support students with their learning, as well as any barriers to their learning, encouraging them to achieve their potential. Collaborating with families, staff members and outside agencies is critical to the effectiveness of the support provided by the Learning Support staff to the students.
Personalised Plans are developed for all students by adopting a collaborative approach. Furthermore, students requiring additional assistance with their transition to the College are catered for by arranging additional transition visits, meetings with families and communication with previous schools.
The College has a dedicated Learning Support Centre which provides a space for students to seek assistance with their classwork or assessment tasks, a calm and quiet space for students requiring a ‘time out’ area, delivers various literacy and numeracy programs and is available for Disability Provisions for examinations. Furthermore, Learning Support Aides are in mainstream classes for further support for students with learning needs.
Students receiving Learning Support assistance may be studying a Life Skills program, have a disability or generalised learning difficulty, have difficulties with maintaining attention and/or may have mental health concerns such as anxiety. These students are integrated into mainstream classes with the necessary support.
