SENIOR SCHOOL PROGRAMME
At Suneden Specialist School, students are offered a diverse curriculum to meet their individual needs. The curriculum provides a foundation to develop and grow in an environment that is supportive, safe, caring and encouraging. The curriculum has an emphasis on communication, literacy, numeracy, daily living skills and community access.
Our curriculum is differentiated to meet the individual needs of our students with reference to the Australian Curriculum and using the General Capabilities. Classroom programs cater for the individual learning styles and needs of students and provide the necessary supports to ensure that all students have the opportunity to learn and experience success in a meaningful and relevant way.
Students at Suneden also participate in a range of activities outside the school to complement classroom programs and to promote and encourage independence. These activities include swimming, kindergym, gymnastics, shopping, visits to local libraries, bowling, visits to local parks, walks in the local area, special events such as movies and Variety parties as well as whole school events such as the Thebarton Ice Arena and Bounce.
Working in partnership with families and external agencies including NDIS providers, teachers utilise their professional knowledge and understanding of each student to develop a Negotiated Education Plan (NEP) which encompasses the academic, functional, social and emotional well-being of the student.
