Student Wellbeing and Support

Elwood College recognises the integral role that schools play in promoting the social and emotional development and wellbeing of young Australians. Student resilience and wellbeing are essential components for both academic and social development, which are encouraged by being in environments that promote safe, supported and respectful learning. Schools share this responsibility with the whole community. 

 

Learning Enhancement

Learning Enhancement provides individual support to ensure that all students are able to access the curriculum and thrive.   We provide continuity throughout the sub schools and create a place for para professionals to support students. 

Our students on the Program for Students with Disabilities and students with diverse needs are supported with expert teacher capacity, differentiated and modified curriculum, Teacher Aide Support in class and out, and the development of alternate and support/intervention programs.

Languages

To further our students’ global outlook, studying a language is compulsory from Years 7 to 8. Students learn either Japanese or French from Year 7, and both languages are available in the VCE.

Studying a language can be one of the most rewarding parts of high school, with additional languages allowing students the opportunity to travel and work overseas as well as make friends with people from different cultures.
