The Montrose Integration Program focuses on recognising and celebrating individual successes and differences. Our school embraces the contribution our special needs students bring to the whole school community and the impact they have on our values and the acceptance of all people.
Montrose Primary School is proud that its curriculum is inclusive of all children. We believe in naturally integrating and supporting special needs children within their classroom setting. Our integration aides work closely with classroom teachers to provide access to the curriculum and activities being undertaken in the classroom and specialist settings such as Art, Music, Drama, LOTE and P.E.
Targeted Support Groups
In addition to support in the classroom
setting, the school offers a range of targeted
groups that support students with their
development. These include:
- Social Skills Groups
