Learning Centre (Marist)
Our well-equipped Learning Centre, located on the Marist campus, provides a secure and caring learning environment for our Year 7 -12 students with a range of disabilities.
The Learning Centre caters for the learning and developmental needs of students with low to high support requirements including severe language impairment, Autism and Down syndrome as well as intellectual and multiple disabilities. Each student has a Documented Plan, developed in collaboration with his/her parents, which sets goals for the development of a range of skills and nurtures independence and confidence. Students join their mainstream buddies for Homeroom, specialist classes and activities such as sport, art, music and assemblies. Upper school Transition programs including Work placements, ASDAN units, and recreational programs with outside service providers are also included in the Curriculum.
For your child to be considered for a place in the Learning Centre, it is necessary to complete a general application form upon enrolment. As appropriate, the student and his/her parents or guardians may be required to meet with the relevant staff to discuss the child’s needs and the School’s facilities and accommodations.
