Learning Enrichment Centre
Mackay Christian College’s Learning Enrichment Centre supports the learning needs of students across all Year Levels mostly within the mainstream setting. The Learning Enrichment Centre works with staff, parents and other agencies to provide coordinated services for students.
The Learning Enrichment Centre is committed to providing support to students in a caring environment that reflects the values of the College. The staff and programs offer learning support and curriculum modification in consultation with the student’s subject teachers and family. These include:
- Student Individual Education Plans which focus on meeting individual needs of students to support learning and success.
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students
- Students who have English as an Additional Language or Dialect (EALD)
- Students below NAPLAN benchmark
In general our belief is that the whole school shares the responsibility for educating all students. Therefore students who have been identified as needing extra help receive in-class support by Aides but may attend the Learning Enrichment Centre and receive small group assistance for short or longer term needs. Teacher Aides provide this additional support under the guidance of the Head of the Learning Enrichment Centre.
