The College recognises that our academically gifted students have many and varied interests and areas of passion. We recognise that the appropriate understanding and attention to the affective needs of gifted academic students is critical, both to their overall wellbeing and academic success.
The Learning Enrichment staff assist in monitoring the progress of each student. Class teachers are assisted to differentiate the curriculum being delivered and processes are modified where necessary to incorporate higher order thinking and critical skills training, open-ended thinking and enquiry-based learning.
Learning Enrichment provides support for students who need extra assistance, particularly in literacy and numeracy, and with their organisational skills. The program may also provide for enrichment opportunities for students across the grades with appropriate skills and application.
Learning Enrichment staff are involved with a range of activities that facilitate the management of support for students with learning difficulties in the College:
- Training and management of teacher-aides and volunteers;
- Professional development for staff and the College community regarding students with learning disabilities;
- Management and application of funds allocated for learning difficulties support;
- Collaboration with a range of other personnel including the College Counsellor, advisory visiting teachers, speechlanguage pathologist, etc.
- Consultation with personnel from other relevant agencies
