Specialist Support Class
Sydney Catholic Schools provide reasonable adjustments to assist and support students with disability to successfully engage in learning. Students with complex intellectual and developmental disabilities may benefit from a highly personalised program, smaller class size and the additional support provided in a Specialist Support Class located within a mainstream school setting.
The Good Samaritan Specialist Support Class is suitable for students with moderate intellectual and complex disabilities. Students enrolled in these classes will benefit from highly skilled Special Education teachers, contemporary technology and quality resources whilst being active and valued members of our school community.
Whilst literacy, numeracy and living skills are the main focus, students engage with NESA approved Life Skills courses in Mathematics; English; Science; Creative and Practical Arts; Physical Education, Health and Personal Development; Religion; History; Geography, Languages and Technology. Students remain in their classroom for all of their subjects and have many opportunities to integrate with their grade cohort such as during lunch and recess, Thursday sport, assemblies, pastoral care and liturgical celebrations.
