From the St Clare’s Learning Support Handbook:
To be a truly Catholic school reflecting the gospel values, St Clare’s must be a truly inclusive school.
The Learning Support Faculty at St Clare’s High School exists to ensure that every student enrolled at the school has equitable access to the academic, social and spiritual opportunities and services the school provides, in a supportive and welcoming environment, in order to reach his/her unique potential.
“OMNI PRO CHRISTO - ALL FOR CHRIST”
Our school motto reminds us that our goal and purpose is to serve Christ.
The Learning Support Faculty at St Clare’s serves Christ through our service to others - students, teachers, parents and caregivers, support staff and all other members of our school community. The gospel values of service and respect for the dignity and uniqueness of each individual are imbedded in all of our practices and interactions, as we strive to meet the needs of students with diverse learning needs.
The S.C.I.L Hub - St Clare’s Inclusive Learning Hub is a place all students are welcome. It is a place for quiet study, assessment task support, literacy and numeracy intervention, lunch time games and use of the technology in the hub. This technology includes, laptops and tablets which allows students access online under guidance from Learning Support teachers. S.C.I.L Hub is for all but focuses primarily on students with special needs both diagnosed disabilities or otherwise, to enable them to access the school curriculum at their ability level. Our dedicated staff of teachers and assistants strive to provide opportunities and support to students so that they are happy and feel accepted at school for the people they are and what they can do. The Learning Support staff also support teachers and parents of students with special learning needs. We work using a collaborative method where all groups- Learning support, teachers, students, parents work together to achieve the best results for the students at St Clare’s.
