“At WCCS we see every student as uniquely made by God. We endeavour to connect and care for each one individually. I believe we need to ensure students are able to engage before they can learn. By knowing our students well we can teach them well.”
Mrs Melissa McCleary – Assistant Deputy Principal
Student Wellbeing and Learning Support
We understand that each individual deserves to be in a productive learning environment with their unique requirements addressed. In many circumstances this is achieved by the classroom teacher who will know the student best and will be able to cater to their needs. However, in some situations, students may require further assistance in their educational and personal pursuits. In order to ensure that each student can achieve to their full potential, we provide fantastic Learning Support Programs for students who need extra support in developing their academic, social and everyday life skills.
Our Learning Support programs help students to gain access to the curriculum, enjoy involvement in a wide range of learning experiences and develop independence. Students who attend these programs are much loved members of the school community who are integrated with their peers. Individual learning plans are developed in partnership with parents, to identify student strengths as well as areas requiring support and adjustment. Students may be supported by a Learning Support Assistant in classes, and targeted intervention programs are available. We seek to address all learning needs, utilising educational assessments and counselling services which aim to provide a great foundation for learning.
We also deliver a range of Life Skills subjects for High School students who benefit from these specifically designed courses. Years 11 and 12 Life Skills courses can be used to meet the requirements for a Record of School Achievement and Higher School Certificate. Students who have completed Life Skills courses have achieved well in post-school settings, such as completing TAFE courses and gaining employment in a range of workplaces.
