Special and Inclusive Education - Support Unit

"Our focus is tailoring education so each child can make progress and reach their potential."
- Jeff Bull, Deputy Principal, Special and Inclusive Education

Our Special and Inclusive Education Faculty caters for students with moderate to high learning and support needs. We currently offer the following classes:

  • Two MC classes
  • One IO class
  • One IM class
  • One ED class
  • Two BD classes (also referred to as the Callaghan Tutorial Centre)

Each of our Special Education classes has a dedicated teacher, as well as learning support staff. It is a highly supportive learning environment. 

Our facilities cater for the needs of all our students and all our classrooms are fitted with assistive technologies.

Our teaching and learning programs cover an adjusted curriculum to meet the specific needs, goals and abilities of each of our students. 

In addition, we offer one-on-one intensive literacy support through our GEM literacy program; our students participate in a different sport each term as part of our weekly sport program; and students are invited to select a special interest elective subject each year from Year 8 as part of our school’s EXCEL elective program.

All our students are welcome to participate in our school’s extra-curricular activities. 

We expect our students to adhere to the ethos of the school and become safe, respectful learners who achieve to the best of their ability.
