Inclusion

St. Joseph’s Echuca Enrichment and Inclusion programs and supports are all individualised to best support a student’s educational, wellbeing and social needs.

Extensive student subject choice is available from year 8 onwards thanks to a Vertical Curriculum Structure. This extensive student choice extends to a variety of pathways including VCE, VCAL, VETis, School Based Apprenticeships and Traineeships opportunities in Senior Years aim to improve student engagement.

While St. Joseph’s offers a Differentiated Curriculum for the diverse range of learners in the modern classroom, some students may be overwhelmed. Sometimes these challenges can be overcome through reasonable accommodation. The Learning Enhancement Team supports students and their families navigate these challenges with a student centred approach.

Student interest vary greatly and positive relationships influence engagement and success. Finding work placements in an area of passion for dis-engaged students can be inspirational. Equally, students are able to build relationships through our community partnerships with members of the community such as during the “Mates Mentoring” program. These targeted programs are an effective means to re-engage students. As we move into 2018 St. Joseph’s College will be part of the development of Echuca’s I Can Network, supporting some of our students identifying on the Autism Spectrum and developing a greater understanding and support of Autistic members of our community.

Our School Leader of Enrichment & Inclusion is Mr Adam Prime, and our Learning Enhancement Leader is Mr Glenn Roberts. They can be contacted at learningenhancement@sje.vic.edu.au
