Support Unit

Support Unit

The Support Unit at Georges River College Hurstville Boys Campus was established in 2014 with one Multi Categorical class (SR4). In 2016 an Autism class (SR1) was established and in 2017 the third class (SR2) was set up. In 2019 there was a third Autism class (SR3) set up. Students range from years 7 to 10. There are four Special Education teachers and four School Learning Support Officers (SLSOs)  in the Support Unit.

Students work towards an individualised curriculum that is relevant to the students’ needs and abilities. The curriculum consists  of English, Mathematics, Science, HSIE, PDHPE, Music, LOTE, TAS and Work Education.  Some students follow a mainstream curriculum with adjustments. Several students attend mainstream classes whilst most students follow the NESA Life Skills curriculum.

Students also participate in Community Access visits on a weekly basis. This is a fundamental aspect of the curriculum as it encourages students to apply their knowledge and skills gained in the classroom to real life situations. The aim of this program is to allow students to be independent, express needs and wants and access services independently.

Students in years 9 & 10 also participate in work experience programs in the local community.

Students in the Support Unit participate in all whole school events such as School carnivals, Camp, Sport, and excursions.
