St Mary’s College for the deaf

Thomas Carr College is proud to offer parallel educational services in partnership with St Mary’s College for the deaf.

The partnership and collaboration provide St Mary’s College students the opportunity to learn alongside Thomas Carr College students through a fully integrated experience whilst catering for the unique needs of hearing-impaired students. They participate in all areas of the curriculum and have access to extracurricular activities as well.

These students are welcomed and highly valued members of the Thomas Carr College community. They are supported to develop rich connections and friendships.

Students have access to a range of services such as Teachers of the Deaf, Soundfield systems, Speech and language therapy and note taking. These adjustments are made in close partnership with students and their families and dependent on what each student needs to successfully complete their secondary education.

Senior pathways available include VCE, VET and VCAL.
