Welcoming students with additional needs

Students with additional needs and their families are very welcome in our schools. An inclusive approach supports the individual needs of each student. It’s all about building confidence, independence and belonging!

We are particularly proud of our three purpose-built, specialised learning centres for students with additional needs.

The learning for students enrolled in our high support needs settings recognises the individual ability of each student and the pace at which they learn.

We work in partnership with families to deliver a personalised and engaging learning program for every student that recognises their abilities, their interests and their skills. Where appropriate, this may also include attendance in some mainstream classes.

ASPECT satellite classes

We value and support all learners, enrolling students on the Autism spectrum in our mainstream schools. Additionally, there are 11 Aspect satellite classes operating in partnership with our schools. These are Autism-specific classes which are operated and managed by Aspect, Australia’s largest service provider for people on the Autism spectrum.

This partnership enables students to learn in a specialist setting and to participate in a welcoming Catholic community.
