Diverse Learning Needs

Within the Catholic context, a fundamental principle at St Joseph's is that each child is created in the image of God. 

Working collaboratively with parents/carers and teachers, Catholic Education Diocese of Wollongong and the community, we aim to respond to student diversity and endeavour to cater for every student’s strengths, aspirations and challenges.

Learners have diverse needs and come from diverse backgrounds, cultures and contexts including:

  • Students with a disability and diverse learning needs
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students
  • Students for whom English is an Additional Language or Dialect (EAL/D)
  • Gifted students
  • Students requiring counselling support
