The Learning Support Program is designed to assist students in optimising their well-being and developing their study skills, academic skills and motivation to make educational progress. Students receive assistance to complete their homework and study the mainstream curriculum areas in which they are currently enrolled. They are provided with extra assistance and models to plan, draft and complete essays, projects and reports. The program aims to develop each student’s emotional intelligence, particularly their confidence, problem solving skills, ability to work in a team and to set and achieve personal goals.
The Literacy Support Program provides Secondary Students from Year 7 – 10 with intensive tutorials specifically focusing on oral, expressive and receptive language. The program aims to provide support to students experiencing difficulties with spelling, writing, reading or handwriting. The semantics, syntax and phonemic structure of language are studied. Students work in small groups at their individual level and their development is evaluated at the beginning and end of the semester.
The Numeracy Support Program is designed to provide secondary students from Years 7 – 10 with mathematical tuition in a small group. This program is designed to offer remediation for pupils who may require attention to weaknesses in fundamental mathematical topics. This program will target some areas in which students frequently have difficulties, such as the specialised language incorporated in Mathematics.
