Cannington Community Education Support Centre (6083)

School Overview

Cannington Community Education Support Centre caters for over 100 secondary aged students from Years 7 to 12. Independence, achievement and respect are our Centre's core values. Our motto 'Learning for life' reflects our belief that learning occurs throughout life and that our students require specialised curriculum to adequately prepare them.

We have high expectations of our students and work in partnership with parents and other stakeholders to provide authentic and relevant programs. Programs include the Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network's life skills curriculum that focuses on student centred learning. Students in years 10 to 12 study English, Maths, Health and Physical Education, Workplace Learning and participate in community service activities, Fire and Emergency Service Cadets and the Duke of Edinburgh Award. We also offer vocational education and training courses in Visual Arts and Construction.

Each student has a personalised education plan or individual transition plan outlining their priority objectives while at school, at home and in the community. These plans also form the basis for reporting to parents on student progress. Staff use data collection plans to address student needs across learning areas and monitor progress.

We have access to specialised facilities including specialist design and technology workshops, information technology laboratories and a fully equipped business centre and fitness room. All classrooms have an interactive whiteboard, desktop computers, iPads and laptops and a kitchen facility.

We are located near Cannington Train Station. A bus service is available for students from Belmont, Bentley, Maddington and Gosnells who are unable to use public transport.

We are immensely proud of our reputation, growing partnerships with the local community and our students who persistently and enthusiastically work hard to achieve their personal, academic and career goals.
