South Ballajura Education Support Centre (6090)



School Overview



South Ballajura Education Support Centre is a highly successful Independent Public School and is a purpose built Kindergarten to Year 6 multicultural school for students with diagnosed disabilities. We are co-located with our partner primary school. The community continues to maintain a reflective culture and dedication to making a positive and significant difference in the life of every student and their family. Creating a safe, engaging learning environment for our school community is the foundation for student personal and academic success.

We offer 'The Best of Both Worlds' for students, by providing evidenced-based approaches, including contemporary Applied Behaviour Analysis, along with explicit small group instruction, and quality inclusive opportunities with primary school peers. Committed and innovative staff teams provide consistent expectations and have expertise in catering for the wide range our students' learning, social, communication, and sensory needs in collaboration with service providers.

Learning goals are tailored for each student based on individual needs and parent priorities. There is an overall focus on multi-modal communication, literacy, numeracy, social and emotional skills. Emphasis is on positive expectations through the 'You Can Do It' Keys to Success (Confidence, Organisation, Persistence, Getting Along and Resilience). Engaging in our inclusive clubs, signing, drumming and Jump Jam, with performance opportunities, epitomises our motto - Learning Together- Growing Together - enabling students to flourish and shine.

Our valued community access programs provide students with a variety of venues across the year in which to generalise the social and academic skills taught in classrooms. Student motivation and learning is enhanced by integrating innovative technologies, programs and applications.

Building mutually respectful, positive relationships with our whole community is a focus. This is based on our T.E.A.M philosophy - Together Everyone Achieves More. Parents are vital partners in planning and enhancing their own child's individual learning program. They are also encouraged to be active Board members to steer the vision and direction of the school.

We invite you to visit our dynamic, inclusive school community.
