LIFE SKILLS

Life Skills is a special program that runs two days a week for students in Year 7 to 10.

This program caters for students that have a disability and need a modified curriculum which focuses on skills needed for independence and employment.

Life Skills focuses on functional numeracy & literacy that is used in every day life as well as daily skills needed in the home or for work.

A small unit on the school grounds is used and has been set up to replicate a real home environment as well as a class room.

Students attend this program for two days then join the normal school curriculum for the rest of the school week.
