Individual Differences

The Student Support Department appreciates that its most important responsibility lies with the successful integration of students with special needs into the mainstream classroom.

At Our Lady of Sion College, we pride ourselves on providing each girl with an inclusive education that challenges, empowers and supports her in meeting her individual potential.

In order to fulfil such an ideal, a great deal of consideration must be given to the creation of a curriculum and environment that recognizes and supports individual differences.

We recognize that at any one year level, the range of physical, emotional, social and cognitive development is incredibly vast and hence, our learning programs must be flexible, adaptable and able to be tailored to meet individual need and circumstance.

The role of the Student Support Department is to coordinate the network of support that is required to successfully integrate a student with special needs.
