At St Lucy’s School High School, we are dedicated to providing an inclusive and enriching educational experience for high school students with disabilities. We believe that every student deserves a supportive and inclusive environment that fosters their growth, independence, and overall well-being. Our high school program is designed to empower students and prepare them for a successful transition into adulthood, while celebrating their unique abilities and talents.
As a specialised high school catering to students with disabilities, St Lucy’s School High School offers exceptional special education programs for Year 10 students. Our comprehensive curriculum is tailored to meet the diverse academic, social, and emotional needs of high school students. We provide a nurturing and inclusive learning environment that focuses on individualised instruction, skill development, and fostering a lifelong love of learning.
We understand the challenges that students with learning disabilities face during their high school years. At St Lucy’s School High School, we offer robust learning disabilities support programs specifically designed for Year 10 students. Our experienced team of educators and learning specialists provide personalised support, interventions, and strategies to help students overcome academic obstacles and achieve their full potential. We believe in empowering Year 10 students with learning disabilities to thrive academically and build a strong foundation for their future.
In recognition that all students are entitled to participate in and progress through the curriculum, NESA provides year 10 students courses based on Life Skills outcomes and content. These provide options for students with special education needs who cannot access the regular course outcomes, particularly for students with an intellectual disability. The Life Skills Curriculum is designed in such a way that students only have to study ‘some’ of the designated outcomes and content from a particular course.
St Lucy’s year 10 students increasingly undertake their learning in the community with a focus on increasing their independence, preparation for work (where appropriate) and recreational options and development of hobbies. St Lucy’s also has a Post School Options Co-ordinator who works with students and their families to create pathways into post-school employment settings and lifestyle opportunities.
Behaviour intervention plays a vital role in supporting students with disabilities. St Lucy’s School High School is equipped with behaviour intervention programs that promote a positive and inclusive environment. Our dedicated team of behaviour specialists works closely with students to address challenging behaviours, develop self-regulation skills, and promote social-emotional growth. Through proactive intervention and individualised behaviour plans, we aim to create a safe and supportive atmosphere where Year 10 students can excel academically and personally.
At St Lucy’s School High School, we recognise the importance of social skills development for Year 10 students. Our comprehensive social skills development programs focus on fostering effective communication, building positive relationships, and enhancing social competence. We provide opportunities for students to engage in collaborative projects, leadership activities, and community involvement, fostering their confidence and independence. Our goal is to equip Year 10 students with the social skills necessary for success in higher education, employment, and life beyond high school.
Selecting students based on their needs and the balance of the class is an important aspect of creating a successful learning environment at St Lucy’s. It is important that we take into consideration the unique learning needs of each student, as well as the overall balance of the class in terms of ability levels, personalities, and interests.
Ensuring that the class is balanced and diverse can help promote inclusivity and improve the overall learning experience for all students. Additionally, selecting students based on their specific needs can help provide more personalised attention and support, ultimately resulting in better academic outcomes. For this reason we have an extensive process at St Lucy’s and we not only take into consideration the needs of your child but also the needs of the year group, when considering enrolment.
