Congratulations to Hume Valley who are one of 3 finalist in the outstanding inclusive education awards

 

Hume Valley School provides education to students with mild intellectual disabilities.  Many children have had no pre-school education and almost half of the 260 students come from homes where English is an additional language.

 

The complexities faced by the school's Student Wellbeing Team make their significant achievements all the more impressive.

 

Through a range of education, peer and social interaction programs, meaningful experiences are created for every student – building life skills, caring relationships and vital community connectedness.

 

Fostering positive relationships with families has also empowered parents to become learners, and to understand and be proud of their children's progress at school.

 

The academic, behavioural and social outcomes being achieved at Hume Valley School have been sector-recognised as best practice in Positive Behaviour Support.
