Learning Enrichment

The Learning Enrichment program at Chinchilla Christian College aims to provide support to all students who require additional assistance in key learning areas, as well as extending and developing their knowledge, understanding and skills. Our Enrichment Coordinator oversees the learning support provided at the College. The Enrichment Coordinator works in partnership with staff, parents and outside agencies to provide an environment for students to experience success and achieve their full potential.

With the help of funding and grants from the government, support is provided to eligible students by College staff in an inclusive environment to assist them in their learning. Some students are a part of the Education Adjustment Profile (EAP) and this is an ongoing, consultative process with the College, parents and outside agencies for students diagnosed with the following disabilities:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder

  • Intellectual Impairment

  • Physical Impairment

  • Vision Impairment

  • Hearing Impairment

  • Speech & Language Impairment

  • Social Emotional Disorder

We also provide support for students with other areas of needs such as:

  • English Language Learners

  • Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Heritage

  • Attention difficulties

  • Processing difficulties

  • Dyslexia or Dysgraphia

  • Learning Differences or Difficulties

Our aim is to ensure that the curriculum in the classroom is paced and pitched to a level which is challenging and focusses on developing children’s areas of strength, regardless of their level of development. The responsibility for inclusion and its enactment is predominantly that of classroom teachers who create a safe, yet challenging, environment where students develop a sense of belonging. Class teachers are supported by the Enrichment Coordinator to facilitate student participation in meaningful and relevant activities. Withdrawal of students for work on an individualised or small group program occurs when the need for such an approach is considered appropriate and is implemented in consultation with families and staff.
