In the Classroom – St Lucy’s High School

St Lucy’s High School continues best practice and holistic education into the secondary years.

As a Special School, St Lucy’s adopts a balanced approach to teaching and learning, using both explicit methods and more child-centred approaches.

St Lucy’s has a social learning model. Students learn within a group, learning from and with one another and from and with staff. St Lucy’s also provides opportunities for individual teaching and learning in the classroom with generous staffing ratios.

Explicit teaching is utilised across all Key Learning Areas and particularly in the KLAs of English and Mathematics where research strongly supports this method of teaching and learning.

“The teachers are amazing authentic individuals who clearly put their souls into our children and promote their interests and learning.”
