In our commitment to personalised learning and care, we provide a range of opportunities to enhance your child’s interests and education.
A few examples of these programs are:
Support for deaf and hard of hearing students
Through a partnership with Telethon Speech & Hearing (TSH), the Outpost School Support Program allows deaf and hard of hearing students in Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 to take a full and active part in school life. Students attend classes while receiving support and individual assistance from a Teacher of the Deaf. Individual assistance may include developing areas of language, speech, auditory and academic support tailored to meet the individual needs of the students.
Children are assisted in the management of their audiological equipment, including hearing aids and cochlear implants. Education Assistants provide support for children in the classroom and Notetakers provide support for secondary students.
TSH staff are based on campus and run the program in partnership with St Stephen’s School. An Audiologist, Speech Pathologist, Occupational Therapist and Psychologist, based at the TSH Wembley campus, provide support, and visit the school on a regular basis.
For children with a hearing loss, the opportunity to access the same educational options as their peers is invaluable.

An onsite Outside School Hours Care Program (OSHClub) allows students to arrive at School early or stay late in a safe and supervised space.
OSHClub works in partnership with the School, providing a fun and interactive space for students from 7am before school and until 6pm after school. Enrolling with OSHClub is easy and completely free.
