Our learning programs are engaging, relevant and functional as they focus on our student’s individual needs, learning styles and abilities. The Education Support Centre has a strong focus on literacy, numeracy and communication skills while building independence and self-management skills for all students. Students are provided learning opportunities through evidence-based teaching and learning practices, play-based learning, community access programs as well as recreational programs. Our students also benefit from attending integration classes for specialist subjects in the primary school where appropriate.
All teaching and support staff have a combined wealth of experience in the field of Special Needs and the high ratio of staff to students, allows for one-on -one and small group instruction and support. Our classrooms are spacious, well-resourced and functional. Our play spaces have engaging equipment and cater for a range of age groups. We share the grounds with the local primary school and have access to a well-resourced library, undercover area and nature garden. The ESC has strong partnerships with other schools in the area which enables students to engage in transition programs and other learning experiences.
