SPECIAL NEEDS TEAM
Students at St Columba’s College come from a wide variety of educational environments and learning experiences. Some students also present with additional needs and it is through the Special Needs Team (SNT) that these students are supported and guided in their educational journey.
The SNT consists of qualified Special Needs teachers and Learning Support Officers. Each member of the team works within the College, liaising with subject teachers, parents and individual students.
The SNT is committed to developing the skills and talents of each individual student where the focus of support is on student participation, inclusion and success in all aspects of school life.
In particular, the SNT works with individual students with disabilities, impairments or learning difficulties within the classroom and across a range of learning areas in order to maximise participation within the mainstream curriculum, promote inclusion, support achievement and monitor progress.
St Columba's College offers a small group tutoring service for students in years 7 -10, held after school each week. All students are welcome to attend, regularly or as required, to obtain assistance with assignments, test revision or general skill development.
