Parkside Base School
We have five classrooms at our base school that offer very high levels of support for students.
In room 3 we aim to foster a sense of belonging by creating connections between staff, students and home. We are all working on developing fundamental skills such as literacy and communication with the use of PODD books, YES/NO symbols and AAC devices. Students are given the opportunity to apply these skills in a variety of contexts and have a stimulating and active learning environment in class. We enjoy creating social connections with the community, (we head out into the community once a week), other schools (through a penpal program) and by participating in programs with other classes.
Our classroom comprises a diverse group of students aged nine to nineteen. Every student will learn and grow in a supportive educational environment where their needs are individually catered for, and learning is based on their strengths and interests. We provide a space where our learners feel accepted and safe, where they can tap into their happiness, enabling them to reach their potential.
