Learning Support

In the Primary School we endeavour to provide a programme that enables individual students to reach their full potential.  We have access to a team of professionals that assist in supporting students with their learning journey. These include:

  • Educational Psychologist
  • EAL (English as an Additional Language)
  • Assistant teacher

Educational Psychologist

The full-time school psychologist provides the following services to referred students, their families, teachers and the community. These services include: Counselling and support to address issues including school refusal, anxiety, depression, anger and frustration and peer difficulties. Assessment is also conducted to assess and provide reports and supportive recommendations. Areas often assessed by the School Psychologist include intellectual and academic functioning and evaluations of social, emotional and coping skills.

English as an Additional Language (EAL) Programme

The objective of the EAL programme is to enable the inclusion of students with limited English to access the mainstream class as soon as is possible. Students are required to have a certain level of English proficiency according to the year level they are applying to enter. We work with our EAL team in cooperation with the class/subject teachers, as well as, parents to enable the EAL students’ transition into the mainstream class. Some student is withdrawn from class and others are attended to within the usual class.

Assistant teacher

The assistant teacher works closely with homeroom teachers, providing extra assistance, providing support that enables students to meet their individual needs.
