Learning support

What is a School Learning Support team?

A learning support team is a whole school planning and support mechanism. It is formed with the purpose of addressing the learning support needs of students through the coordination, development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of educational programs.

A prime function of a learning Support Team is to ensure that the needs of all students in the school are being met.

A key function of the Learning Support team is the facilitation of collaborative planning between teachers, support staff, parents and students.

Lurnea High School Homework Centre:

Lurnea High School operates a Homework Centre providing support for young people in our school. The centre provides a positive environment for students to complete homework and assignments. While at the centre the students are able to use resources that may not be available to them in the home environment such as computers, printers and books. Most importantly, student receive help to understand and complete their homework and assignments from dedicated teachers in a range of subjects.

The centre operates two afternoons each week on Tuesday and Thursday from 3-5pm at no cost to students and is held in the school library. A light afternoon tea is provided by the school.

Students who are interested in attending the centre need to complete an application and submit it to the Homework Centre Coordinator.

We monitor each student's progress and provide additional learning support if this is required.

Our school uses learning programs and specialised staff where needed and we work in partnership with parents and carers to assist students who have special learning needs.

Our school is committed to working with Aboriginal parents and community members in developing personalised plans for our Aboriginal students.
