We provide students with a real alternative to mainstream education
We encourage our students to take ownership of their own education so they can become capable of growing and developing to meet their own needs, with the ongoing support of our friendly staff.
Students all work to an Individual Education Plan (IEP). These goals are set by students with strategies created by staff, in collaboration with parents/guardians and the students' medical or psychological specialists, to ensure students can achieve their educational goals.
Each student's learning goals will differ from their peers' as everyone has different needs and a different pathway they wish to take out of school. For some students their IEP may contain a goal of specific completion dates for their Certificate in General Education for Adults work, and for others their IEP may contain a goal of increasing their attendance to 3 days per week. It is important that students are involved in setting their IEP goals as this enables them to visualise the steps they need to take to get where they want to be as an adult.
The IEP is an evolving document between teachers, students and their families, and is reviewed at the end of Term 1 and Term 3 each year. Parents/Guardians are sent a copy of the evaluated IEP with comments from the student's teacher outlining their progress and reviewed goals for the following IEP cycle.
