• Class Placement for 2020 - Let us know! As we approach Term 4 it is once again time for us to start planning our classroom environments for next year. When we organise classes in our school we look at each of our students’ academic and social needs and abilities. We use our cumulative teachers’ notes and check friendships with each child. We strive to achieve the best possible learning environments for all of our students and teachers. We actively decide to separate some students and join others, to achieve the best possible learning and teaching outcomes. While providing support, we also work to build resilience and independence in our students, so that they will be able to cope with change and the next steps in their educational journeys ...
