Student services and support programs

Student Services​

 

Pacific Paradise State School provides a flexible and comprehensive support services program across varying levels for students with learning needs.
 
Students requiring support are identified by the monitoring of data collection on behaviour and academic progress.  They are referred to the Support Services Committee which meets fortnightly. 
 

This Committee includes the Principal or Deputy Principal, Guidance Officer, Inclusion Support Teacher, Support Teacher, Literacy and Numeracy (StLan), a representative from Sunnykids and a representative from Child Youth Mental Health Services  (CYMHS).  This team makes decisions as to the individual learning needs of a student and the level of support required.

Students identified with a disability through Education Queensland’s verification process are supported within our Special Education Program.
 
The students spend the majority of each day in the regular classrooms, accessing the Australian Curriculum, with the support of special education teachers and aides. We also have a Support Services Block, where students may work individually or in small groups for targeted intervention. Students also have access to Education Queensland Advisory Visiting Teachers, Occupational Therapists, Speech-Language Pathologists and other specialists as required.
 

 

At Pacific Paradise State School we believe that every child has the capacity to learn, that all children should have access to a quality education, and that the social-emotional development of the child is just as important as the academic.
