We believe that all children are unique individuals who can learn and that students learn best when they are actively involved and the learning environment supports their needs.
Students with severe multiple disabilities require a balanced curriculum in which their cognitive, physical, emotional and social needs can be catered for.Through collaboration with parents, teachers, conductors and Novita therapists specific learning goals for individual students are identified during the Negotiated Education Planning process. Students are also encouraged to set their own learning goals.
The Department of Education and Child Development employs a Coordinator, Conductors, Teachers and School Services Officers (SSOs) to support student learning in the Unit. Child Youth and Women’s Health Service employ Health Support Officers (HSOs) to cater for students with invasive health care needs such as gastrostomy feeds.
