The Special Education Program supports and provides learning opportunities for students with disabilities. These disabilities include hearing impairment, visual impairment, physical impairment, intellectual impairment, speech language impairment and autistic spectrum disorder.
The unit supports an inclusion policy where students can be part of regular subjects with assistance from either a teacher or teacher aide, if necessary. Students are able to choose mainstream subjects from Year 8 to 12 and/or choose alternative subjects which have been designed to address students’ individual needs in the areas of work preparation, leisure skills, relationships, communication, literacy and numeracy skills and community awareness. All students’ timetables are individual and designed to best meet the student’s individual goals.
Supporting extra curricular activities, the staff are committed to providing opportunities outside the classroom. These activities include horse riding, bush gardens and swimming.
