The Learning Centre (ext: 888) offers a range of services designed to promote and support learning for students with diverse needs.
Most students have Individual Education Plans (IEP) or Action Plans where collaboration takes place with parents/caregivers/whānau and the student, to personalise learning. This may involve teachers, specialist teachers, RTLB service, GSE, Ministry of Education staff, medical specialists, and outside agencies.
Students with higher level learning needs, and their caregivers and team, are invited to take part in a transition planning meeting and programme during the final year of their contributing school to support their move to MGC.
Parents with concerns about any of their daughter’s learning needs are advised to discuss these with HOD Learning Centre at or before enrolment time, so that appropriate supports can be planned and put into place as early as possible.
Supports may include:
- Individualised programmes for students with ORS funding or Specific Learning Needs
- Testing and dissemination of information to support learning in mainstream classes, for example, asTTle English and Maths, reading, spelling, dyslexia, and learning strategies
- Computer-based individualised learning, e.g. Success Maker, Lexia, “Maths Made Easy” and “Reading for Literacy”
- Dual enrolment with Correspondence School/ Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu
- Modified timetable
