In the Senior School, there is an in-depth focus on supporting each students’ journey through adolescence and ensuring that their physical and emotional wellbeing is key at all times.
The Giant Steps Senior School teaches across a diverse range of subject areas within the Victorian Curriculum.
Our trans-disciplinary team supports students from Year 7 to Year 10. Our team of teachers and therapists draw on their expertise to provide an innovative and individualised education and therapy program for each student. These programs are based on the Victorian Curriculum and incorporate all of the key learning areas.
There is an in-depth focus on supporting students’ journey through adolescence, and ensuring that their physical and emotional wellbeing is key at all times. Subsequently, our curriculum is centred on developing independence in eating, hygiene and self-care. We aim to develop students’ understanding of safety, privacy, and the changes that they go through during adolescence.
To support students’ transition into post-school environments, there are extensive vocation education activities which include both off- and on-site programs, as well as teaching students the skills, independence and knowledge that they will need into young adulthood and beyond.
Each year, families receive two academic reports pertaining to individual student learning goals. Regular communication is conducted via newsletters, emails, phone calls, photographs and face to face meetings.
