Warnbro Community High School (CHS) Education Support Centre is an Independent Public School for students with intellectual disabilities or in the presence of high educational needs, co-located with Warnbro Community High School. Our unique and highly innovated programs support our students to build pathways into their community.
Warnbro CHS Education Support Centre consists of middle school for students in years 7, 8 & 9 and senior school for students in years 10, 11, 12 & 13. In middle school our students work in small groups with the teacher and education assistants to specifically improve their literacy, numeracy and social skills. Our highly trained staff develop challenging learning experiences in English, Mathematics, Health & Physical Education and Humanities & Social Sciences through rich, integrated and meaningful activities. Our Protective Behaviours program supports students to learn how to make sensible decisions for themselves at school, home and in the community. Additionally, students spend approximately 30% of their class time in integrated mainstream classes working alongside their mainstream peers.
Our senior school prepares students for an independent and prosperous life after school. Senior school programs are linked to industry areas such as Business, Transport and Logistics, Hospitality, Agrifoods and Retail. Our senior school students participate in nationally recognised training in these industry areas to achieve Certificate I and II level qualifications. Practical work and life skills are reinforced through participation in Enterprise Education, Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network (ASDAN) programs and Workplace Learning. Our staff structure innovative learning environments that provide realistic and purposeful reasons for engaging in literacy and numeracy activities whilst also supporting students develop their career planning skills. Our programs prepare students to transition from school into meaningful pathways beyond school.
At Warnbro CHS Education Support Centre students’ individual needs are met through a team of dedicated staff with expertise in a wide range of areas. Our Wellbeing Team works with students and staff to care for students’ mental, emotional and behavioural needs. Our Occupational Therapists and Speech Pathologists work with students, teachers and education assistants to cater for students social, emotional, sensory and physical needs. A collaborative response to the needs of our students results in our students having a positive journey through school and supports them to actively create the life they want to live.
