“We are so thrilled to be able to now offer alternative education for these year levels; amazing achievement.”
NEW BUS SERVICE
Cire Community School has experienced considerable growth this year due to the inclusion of years 7 to 9. In response to an increased level of interest in our junior high school program which is based at Yarra Junction, the school will be offering an additional bus service from the start of next term. We currently provide a dedicated bus service linking the Healesville and Badger Creek communities to our school. From the start of term 3, we will expand this service to Chirnside Park, Mooroolbark, Mt Evelyn and Lilydale.
“We recognise that many of our students need an extra level of support in order to have a successful high school experience and we are committed to providing theses extra services to our school community”.
Cire Community School has been specifically established as a not for profit co-educational secondary school. We provide positive educational experiences and social and behavioural support to enable our students to successfully engage in their secondary schooling.
Cire Community School caters for over 100 students who have experienced difficulty with mainstream schooling and provides quality education and personal development opportunities that are hands-on, engaging and relevant to our students. Each class is well resourced and staffed with quality programs to assist students in their individual learning styles. The class sizes are small and welcoming.
Our Years 7 to 10 program is delivered from our purpose built campus in Yarra Junction. We offer Foundation, Intermediate and Senior VCAL as a Senior Secondary Qualifications from both our Mt Evelyn and Yarra Junction campuses.
Committed to providing students with a range of educational pathways and assisting the young people who attend our school to achieve the goals that they have identified for themselves. Graduates from our school go on to follow a range of training and employment pathways as a result of their learning. All students will complete a pathways plan at the commencement of enrolment which is reviewed throughout their time at the school.
Cire Community School strives to provide a learning environment where:
Students can create and experience success in their learning, personal and social development.
Students can engage in structured and positive community activities to foster their sense of connection to their community as a valued and active member.
Students are supported to develop the academic and social skills to successfully transition from childhood to young adulthood and beyond.
Individual learning needs can be met in a supportive and flexible manner.
The highest standards of Applied Learning are delivered.
Success is not just measured in academic terms but in the development of resilience and maturity
Cire Community School provides an educational environment that is framed in the emerging understandings of childhood development, including the impacts of childhood trauma and student learning. We believe that all young people should be able to positively engage in their education regardless of their life circumstances and any barriers to learning. Education should not just focus on academic attributes but on the whole person, providing active support for their social and emotional development while supporting the development of knowledge and skills needed for a rapidly changing world.
VCAL incorporates the following units:
Literacy, reading and writing
Literacy oral communication
Work related skills
Personal development skills
