Reaching the full potential

The Learning Support department is a specialised intervention programme that exists to support students who have learning difficulties or differences. The programme is implemented by qualified teachers who possess specialised knowledge and skills. The main goal is to help students reach their full potential and the department aims to do so through provision of academic, social and emotional support.

Working together with class teachers, the Learning Support department also aids with assessments, test completion and provides general academic guidance: reviewing or previewing concepts/skills, planning for homework assignments, as well as modifying strategies and content. Students receive support in small groups or individually.

The Learning Support department also liaises with outside agencies, such as educational psychologists and paediatricians, who provide therapy for students (for e.g. speech or occupational therapy).
