Learning Support

Specific support is available for students with learning difficulties or those from non-English speaking backgrounds. Ms Kaylene Forrester is the Support Teacher – Inclusive Education. Mrs Laura Gillham is the Guidance Counsellor.

Focus group meetings are offered as a support for parents whose children have developmental and/or social and emotional needs. In some cases, concerns can be addressed in one session while in other situations the support may be ongoing. Sometimes there is a need to refer parents to other agencies (e.g., a speech and language therapist). The issues that are addressed are many and varied. Anxiety, lack of concentration, an inability to make and maintain friendships and delayed progress in learning are illustrative of the types of issues that are addressed.
