Our Programs

Riverside ESC Office and SignPrograms have been developed by Riverside ESC that respond to individual abilities and age-appropriate learning. Although program has evolved over several years, it retains the flexibility to incorporate new approaches and understanding, enabling a fresh approach to each and every enrolment.

Programs are explained via the links below where you will find information about priority learning areas and other school activities.

Education Programs

Riverside Education Support Centre has selected three Priority Learning Areas to focus on within its educational and social development planning. These are:

  • English - Reading
  • Mathematics - Number
  • Health, Safety and Well Being

Health, Safety and Wellbeing

Heath, Safety and Well Being is presented to the students in three linked programs: Physical Education, Protective Behaviours, and Health

The imparting of Protective Behaviours skills is considered vital for preparing the student for the challenges of later life. Accordingly it has been designated a high focus or priority learning area. See more information here: Protective Behaviours (pdf file).

Other Activities

Community Access

Students are introduced to an array of skills needed for healthy and safe participation in the community outside school, such as shopping, pedestrian safety, using public transport, safe use of public conveniences, borrowing books from the library and asking for help. Riverside Education Support Centre covers all these learning activities and more as part of its individualised learning programs for Years 1 to 7. Students can replicate these tasks in a classroom setting but transference of skills from school to community receives a major investment in time, energy and resources.
