CHARLES FADEL FOUNDER OF THE CENTRE FOR CURRICULUM REDESIGN, AND SCHOLAR AT THE HARVARD GRADUATE SCHOOL OF EDUCATION | 2017

“There is general acknowledgement around the world that to equip young people for success we need to shift from a knowledge-only based education towards incorporating skills such as creative problem solving, collaboration and character skills such as resilience, agility, compassion and respect. These elements are central to the new success.”

Learning Diversity

OUR LEARNING FRAMEWORK

The College is committed to catering for individual learning differences and needs. The Individual Needs Department aims to support students across a broad spectrum of ability – from those requiring academic challenge to those requiring academic support. A range of qualified Special Education teachers and integration aides support our students in this arena.

Individual Needs team’s goal is to work collaboratively with teaching staff, parents and specialist staff to provide a learning setting that acknowledges and supports individual needs through focused and targeted teaching. This includes LNSLN funded students, non LNSLN funded students who have difficulty accessing the mainstream curriculum and students who have been identified as gifted and talented.

When necessary, the Individual Needs team may refer to a broad range of outside educational and health professionals to assist with diagnosis and provision of intervention programs eg. Marist Education Services, Catholic Education Office, curriculum advisers, speech therapists, visiting teachers and educational psychologists.

NCCD Update

Schools must now complete the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD) every year. It counts the number of students who receive additional adjustments or ‘help’ at school because of a disability. The NCCD helps governments plan for the needs of students with disability.
