Learning Support

Learning Support is offered to students who may have learning difficulties or other special needs. All students in the Junior School are tested in the areas of literacy and numeracy at the beginning of each year. The academic achievement of all students in the College is monitored, and further diagnostic testing carried out if a need is identified. The necessary steps are then taken to ensure that appropriate assistance is given. The student support team ensures that all teaching staff have the relevant information and strategies to assist with the education of all students.

Consultation is carried out between the classroom teacher, the Learning Support teacher and the parents, together with outside agencies when appropriate. The latest research is used to design programmes that will assist students in reaching their potential; this may include multisensory activities and the use of assistive technologies. Ongoing assessment monitors progress and programmes are adjusted accordingly. If necessary, students can have intensive one-on-one or group work with a learning support teacher.

The Learning Support staff are members of professional bodies including Learning Difficulties Australia, SPELD NSW and the Learning Difficulties Coalition.

The Independent Learning Centre (ILC)

The ILC is a centrally located classroom within the school that is accessible to all students. We help with individual work and provide assistance in any area of school or creative interest. Specialised external competitions and enrichment opportunities are promoted through the ILC and made available for all interested students.

The drop-in homework centre is run every Monday afternoon from 3.20pm. Maths, Science, English and Humanities specialists are available at this time to assist with prep and assignments.

NEWS 2017

 

Pacific Project 2017

Year 11 All Saints' College students Isabelle Harrison and Georgia Poole have been chosen to attend the United Nation Youth’s Pacific Project 2017.

Pacific Project is a year-long initiative open to students in Years 10, 11 and 12 from around Australia.

Only 12 young leaders from around Australia are chosen for the project, so it is amazing that one sixth of the delegates are from our College!

This is an exciting opportunity to embark on a two-week tour of East Timor exploring the complex realities of development in one of our closest neighbours.

Pacific Project centres around an unforgettable 2-week tour of East Timor during the July holidays.

The girls are required to hold fundraising initiatives prior to their departure to assist with projects undertaken while in East Timor.

They will also continue their philanthropy upon return to Australia by continuing to raise funds with the other delegates to continue the projects developed while on tour.

As part of the Pacific Project, students learn about sustainable development and the challenges of international aid. They will also spend time working with local communities and grassroots organisations, including working closely with the partner school in Maliana, Encouragement House.

Georgia and Isabelle will be holding an ice block stall this Friday at recess and will continue to hold various fundraisers throughout first and second term.

Please support this very worthwhile initiative. Congratulations girls!

Mrs Sarah O’Neill
