The Centre of Enhancement

A new Department in the school, find out more here...

The Centre of Enhancement, (CoE), is a new department incorporating:

  • Learning Support
  • Careers Education and Guidance
  • Gifted and Talented Education
  • English as a Second Language
  • High Performance Sport and Culture

The aim for this department is to enhance learning opportunities and holistic supports for students who would benefit from specific, specialised and targeted support to reach their potential.

At the core of this Centre’s educational philosophy is the Response to Intervention model. This is the case for all aspects of the Centre of Enhancement. Response to intervention as a model is in line with the school’s Catholic and Marist special character. The underlying principles of knowing and understanding our students in order to best provide for them, is at the core of Fr Colin’s vision of education and is the same for RTI; acknowledging and encouraging potential both seen and unseen.

We would like to extend an invitation to those parents who have or potentially will have students involved, to attend a parent’s information evening to meet the teachers involved. This will be a fantastic opportunity to get an overview of how the CoE will work and to ask any questions you may have.

The parent evening will take place

  • In the Library
  • Wednesday, 7 February
  • 7pm

Please RSVP by 6 February to:
