Education WA introduces Echuca Specialist School in Echuca, for all your education and learning needs.
To ensure that all students develop to their full potential and become respected and respectful members of the community"
Echuca Specialist School in High Street, Echuca, provides specialist education for 64 children aged 5 – 18 years. Students have intellectual and associated disabilities. Students travel by bus from a wide area bounded by Cohuna, Kyabram, Rochester and rural N.S.W. Twelve qualified teachers and 16 aides, all who have extensive experience in special education, presently staff the school.
The basis of our schools’ philosophy is the belief that all children can learn and have a right to be taught by the most suitable teaching methods, in a safe, happy, supportive atmosphere which provides the opportunity to reach their social, academic and physical potential.
Close contact is maintained between staff, families, carers, volunteers and workers from other agencies such as Community Residential Unit staff, Outreach workers, and mainstream Primary and Secondary schools where some students participate in an integrated program. We believe that programs are more effective when applied consistently in all settings.
Welcome to Echuca Specialist School one of the popular educators in your Echuca area. Our aim is help you in your learning journey.
We endeavour to celebrate each otherâ€™s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
