The Learning Centre in the
Junior School provides support to students experiencing difficulty
acquiring literacy and mathematical skills, and, at times, for students
requiring extension. Teachers in the Centre also work with students to
provide strategies to ensure appropriate behaviour and social skills.
The role of the teachers in the Learning Centre is to help identify students with learning difficulties, to provide individual programs and refer to external professional agencies as appropriate. This includes a range of interventions including speech therapy, occupational therapy, counseling and educational assessment.
Students work in small groups, each following an individualized program based on identified needs. All programs are monitored through a system that includes ongoing communication with parents, homeroom teachers and other relevant agencies.
Teachers or parents can refer students to the Learning Centre at any time. We strive to promote early identification and intervention.
