All of our students are part of a caring and supportive community which encourages them to realise their full potential. Students can face a broad range of challenges, from social to physical or emotional difficulties that may impact on their learning.
Our learning support team works collaboratively with teachers, families and external service providers to ensure each individual child’s needs are catered for. At Kearnan, our aim is to provide the resources and environment needed to support the education and development of the whole person.
