The MacKillop School in Geelong is for students who are disengaged or at risk of disengaging from mainstream education. It is based at MacKillop Education Services Geelong.
Often the young people in our service display social and/or emotional behaviours that are challenging and a mainstream setting is not able to cater for their individual learning and wellbeing needs.
At the MacKillop School in Geelong we provide a trauma-informed learning environment and staff are able to develop relationships with young people that are focussed on meeting their individual needs – academic, social and emotional.
We believe that young people are able to learn when they feel safe and that strong relationships create a safe environment.
What we can offer:
- a flexible learning program
- individual or small group learning support
- wellbeing support
- internal or external referrals to access specialist support services
- alternative programs to develop school readiness (on-site and off-site available)
- support to access educational pathways.
