At St Joseph's, the Learning Support Team collaborate with students, parents and teachers to better understand and provide for the learning needs of our students. Learning Support Assistants and the Learning Support Teacher work both in the classrooms and the playground to provide support for students who may require some additional help. At times, students may join small groups to work on developing specific skills such as literacy or numeracy.
The Learning Support Team also works with teachers in developing and implementing preventative strategies and programs. For example, LS staff operate lunch club on a daily basis. Students are assisted to develop social and communication skills in a play based learning environment. At the core of all we do, we aim to develop a warm and respectful relationship with students.
