The Learning Support Team, under the guidance of the Learning Diversity Leader, ensures all students individual learning requirements are met throughout their journey from Year 7 to 12. Our team is well staffed and resourced with experienced team members who successfully work with subject teachers to foster independent learning abilities in our students.
The types of assistance offered range from curriculum support, help with comprehension and completion of set tasks, through to complete modification of the course offered. This support takes place in the classroom, with Learning Support Officers, or in alternative spaces in a small group setting where our specialist Learning Support Teachers can best address individual learning needs. All students are also most welcome to attend Homework Club, held weekly in the Paul D’Astoli Information Centre.
Students can be referred to the Learning Support Team by teachers and parents. Assessments are undertaken and referrals to specialists made where necessary. Personalised Learning Plans are developed according to the needs of the individual student in collaboration with parents, teaching staff and following the advice of specialist reports. Program Support Group meetings are held regularly to review student progress and update plans.
