At our college your child will be
supported by an extensive and diverse team incorporating every member of the
school community, including teachers, support staff, volunteers and other
agencies, families and students. They will work collaboratively to ensure your
child can access and participate in all aspects of school life. Where curriculum
needs to be adjusted for your child’s age, skills and knowledge, the school
will complete the necessary assessments to ascertain an accurate point of need
to develop a response to your child’s diverse learning need.
Collaboration with students, families and the community

to meet all their learning needs. At our college we work with your child, you,

making at all levels about your child’s holistic education.
Respecting and valuing diversity

barriers and access all necessary resources to ensure your child’s successful
inclusion in all aspects of their education.
