Catering for the unique learning needs of your daughter
At the College we endeavour to cater to the unique learning needs of our students. We recognise that students who consistently working beyond the outcomes for their stage have particular intellectual, social and emotional needs.
The College works to meet these needs and to promote the achievements of these students.
Some of the possibilities offered within the College to encourage gifted and talented students to reach their potential are:
- Extension courses in Years 11 and 12
- A differentiated curriculum offering challenges with a greater degree of complexity and higher order thinking
- Leadership opportunities
- A variety of extra-curricular activities such as: choir, orchestra, Amnesty International, St Vincent de Paul, debating, public speaking, Shakespeare Festival, Tournament of Minds, Future Problem Solving, Art Club and Mathematics Challenge.
Special Education Needs
The curriculum at the College provides for equitable access, inclusion, participation and positive outcomes for all students. We anticipate, for most students with special education needs, that they will participate fully in achieving within the regular curriculum but may require additional support.
This support will be determined by the individual needs of each student in collaboration with class teachers. Learning support includes:
- Literacy support
- Numeracy support
- Adjustments to teaching practices, content, assessment and reporting
- Life Skills programs
- Teachers Aides (Learning Support Staff)
