Learning Enhancement

The St Hilda’s Learning Enhancement department aims to provide students with the opportunity to develop the necessary academic skills needed to ensure a positive school experience. Learning Enhancement staff are responsible for the development of appropriate programs for students with learning difficulties, including individual education programs for students eligible for special funding. The staff work closely with the classroom teachers to support learning, enabling the students to achieve success while discovering strategies and structures that accommodate their learning needs.

There are a number of avenues available to students who need support with their learning. The Learning Enhancement class is available to students and is taken instead of a language in Years 7 and 8, or as an elective in Years 9 and 10. Every student needs to have a diagnosis of a learning difficulty from a specialist before being accepted into the class. Students are also assisted in class by a teacher aide who works with the class teacher to offer further assistance.

In addition, a Homework Help Club is held after school each week and is open to all students who require help with their homework or assignments.

The Learning Enhancement department also takes responsibility for providing English as Another Language (EAL) support. EAL support is available through the EAL class or support in mainstream classes according to each individual student’s needs.
