Learning Support Program
The Resource Unit oversees the programs for students in the school who have a diagnosed or funded disability. Two teachers and twenty-four highly skilled Education Assistants currently support students with Autism Spectrum Diagnosis (ASD), anxiety and depression, intellectual disability, hearing Impairment, vision Impairment and physical disability to achieve their educational goals. We pride ourselves on embedding inclusive practices into learning programs which enables the majority of our students to attend a variety of mainstream classes. The unit also caters for a number of students who have difficulty in mainstream classes by providing them with the opportunity to participate in many life-skill based programs such as; ASDAN, transport training, TAFE, community access, gardening, supported work experience and foundation programs in English, Maths, and Science.
The Resource Unit provides a safe and supportive environment for students to learn at their appropriate level. Many of our students attend the Homework club which runs after school Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. This extra-curricular support offers students the opportunity to access assessment and homework guidance in a small group setting.
