Learning principles

The student programs at MSIS are influenced and informed by a range of professionals. Classroom Teachers, Specialists Teachers in the area of Dance, Music, Art and Drama work with Therapists within a shared co-teaching environment. That is, the therapists work in the classroom to demonstrate and teach staff how to use appropriate therapy approaches with your children. This enables professional skills and knowledge to be imparted to the class teacher. The teacher is then able to utilise therapy strategies consistently throughout the day and week to meet the individual needs of all the students in their classes. Students access the input of this range of disciplines based on their priority needs. These priorities may change at different points of a student’s life and circumstance. Each students’ progress, priorities, needs, and services are reviewed at the Students Support Group (SSG) meeting twice per year. MSIS places a major emphasis on the teaching and learning environment which exists both within and outside the classroom environment.

Students in the foundation and pathways sub schools have the opportunity to learn and practice skills from a number of sports including soccer, basketball and Australian Rules Football (AFL). The Aquatic Program is an engaging experience for students aimed at developing physical, social and cognitive skills in a safe and enjoyable environment. Students are given the opportunity and support to build confidence in the pool and gain respect for the water as they participate in water familiarisation, stroke development, and safety and survival activities. During swimming sessions the main focus is on developing independence, exploring the water, active participation, developing water confidence, learning water safety skills and learning how to move through the water.
