Our Junior School – Prep to Year 6

Our youngest students’ learning is focused on developing skills essential for their education, such as social and emotional development, play, oral language, literacy, and numeracy. 

At Mancel College we are experts in supporting students with language disorder to learn and thrive.

Our specialised classrooms involve teachers and therapists working together to support our learners. Examples of this unique learning environment include teachers and allied health professionals collaborating in daily literacy lessons (Sounds Write), provision of multimodal learning opportunities and enhancing the language learning environment through use of Key Word Sign and integrated access to augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices.

Our education team recognise the unique strengths and needs of all our learners and work in partnership with their families to create engaging and targeted individualised learning plans.

Learning encompasses all areas of the Australian Curriculum, including English, Mathematics, Science, Human and Social Science (HASS), the Arts, Health and Physical Education (HPE) and Technologies. All students are supported to access the curriculum through evidenced-based teaching and therapeutic strategies within and beyond the classroom.
