Head of Curriculum's News

28/07/2017
Unfortunately our purchase of a school-based Speech-Language Pathologist has come to an end due to a vacancy not being filled in the Emerald region.  My sincere thanks to Catherine Ellen who did work in our school one day a fortnight since the start of the year.  Catherine was able to complete a backlog of assessments and provide intervention material to support our students.  Catherine will continue to visit our school one day a term to monitor the progress of some of our students who receive speech intervention.

 

During the week some other students also had assessments completed by the Speech and Language Disorder Awareness team.  This free service is also invaluable to us as it provides reports on the children who have been assessed and also provides intervention programs for us which can be implemented by teachers and teacher aides.  It is greatly appreciated.

 

If you feel that your child is struggling at school and would benefit from further support, please speak to your child’s teacher or myself.  Our sincere aim is to provide a classroom where every child can succeed and feel a sense of achievement.

 

As a staff, we have recently been adding data to the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data for students with a disability.  Please see further information regarding this data collection elsewhere in this newsletter.
