ESC3 is located in Room 21 which is situated amongst Mainstream classes.
In ESC3 we believe all children have potential and it is a privilege to share in the learning journey of our class.
We have seven wonderful students; each with amazing abilities and wonder for learning. The students are in Year 3 and Year 4, and, have successfully transitioned from lower primary to upper primary this year.
Our focus is to apply in-class learning to real world experiences. Each week we venture into the community and demonstrate life skills such as, making purchases, engaging with the Public, travelling on Public transport and ordering food at a local cafe. In class, we cook every week, complete Hygiene tasks role-play social stories and practice basic cleaning skills. This holistic approach to teaching ensures that each child is equipped to face life beyond school with confidence and varying degree of independence.
We encourage families to be involved in their child's schooling as much as possible. This is by inviting parents to parent-help, family picnic day, communication through telephone, emails and communication books and our Facebook page. We love partnering with families as it is encouraging our students to make connections from school life to home life.
