|this school is definitely not for those who have really specific needs. |
i have multiple learning issues and several chronic illness plus anxiety and the school did not make it easy for me.
from the start they were definitely not accomidating and helpful with my anxiety towards school events etc, i was pushed to do things i didn't want to especially in year 7. I struggled with this and haven't liked any school events e.g. aths carnival, swim carnival. They tried to help with a school counsellor but with my difficulties this was hard and they all started to talk to each other and i felt violated.
When i became ill, at the start everyone was ok with helping me with work, making sure i was ok, but i relied on my friends a lot because the teachers weren't great in communicating things, eventually as i hit the 3 year mark with my illness's everything became crashing down, the teachers said i needed to communicate instead of my mum, ( i was not able to write emails etc) they said i needed to be more responsible, they weren't very accommodating with helping me with my VCE beginning, the school continued with saying it was not a long distance school, and the teachers couldn't take photos or record themselves in the lessons. i was missing out on a lot of work. and it wasn't helping, I'm still in school and I'm having trouble still. even after several meetings things still haven't been sorted out and its very tiring. my mum wants to move me but I'm already halfway through year 11, and i only have 1 year to go. My friends are their and i think the toll of moving and making new friends would be more destructive than helpful
its not worth the hassle thinking about sending your kids here if they have complex needs, medically and learning.
I must say this is a great school if your child is really outgoing, confident, sporty or talented.
