St Lucy's School

A community enriched by difference

St Lucy’s the experts in Special Education for Year 8

As a parent, you want the best for your child, and that includes ensuring they receive an education that meets their unique needs. If you have a child entering Year 8 in 2023 or 2024, you may be interested in our special education programs.

Our school caters to students with a wide range of special needs, including those on the autism spectrum. We have a team of experienced teachers and support staff who are dedicated to providing a safe and supportive learning environment for all our students.

St Lucy’s Specialised Programs for Year 8 Students

Our special education program for Year 8 students is designed to help them build the skills they need to succeed in high school and beyond. We focus on developing their academic abilities, as well as their social and emotional skills. Our goal is to help them become confident, independent learners who are ready to take on the challenges of high school. While St Lucy’s follows the NESA (NSW Education Standards Authority) curriculum, we thoughtfully design teaching and learning experiences to address the diverse learning needs of our students at this crucial stage of their education journey.

If you are looking for an autism school, you have come to the right place. We understand that students on the autism spectrum require a different approach to learning, and we have developed a program that meets their specific needs. Our teachers are trained in evidence-based practices for teaching students with autism, and we provide a range of supports to help them succeed in the classroom.

How does St Lucy’s balance our classes to get the best out of Students

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.
