Learning Intervention and Extension

Learning Intervention and Extension Programs

We offer learning intervention and extension programs for our students as required. For extra support in reading, we run a well-known and researched one to one reading intervention program called, ‘Cracking the ABC Code’. This program is recommended by speech pathologists and all of our teachers have received comprehensive training in the program.

We also provide learning support through the Tutor Learning Initiative, aimed at supporting students negatively impacted by COVID to catch up and close learning gaps. Students in this program have one to one sessions with a teacher for 15 minutes per day, supported by an Individual Learning Plan.

For students requiring extension, our multi-age groupings mean that they can work with peers of different ages based on their next point of learning. Our STEM program and opportunities such as the Australian Mathematic Competition and Melbourne Writers Festival Writing Competition provide opportunities for students who excel, to challenge themselves and their learning. We also have students participating in the Victorian High Abilities Program.

We acknowledge the Taungurung people as the first peoples of Buxton and the surrounding areas. The Taungurung have been custodians and caretakers of the land, animals and waters for many thousands of years and continue to perform age-old ceremonies of celebration, initiation and renewal. We also recognise other Indigenous peoples living and working in the Buxton area.

In our school, the focus is on treating everyone with respect and dignity, developing personal, social and emotional skills and contributing to early intervention through education.
