Green Gum is a Year 1 to Year 5 Conductive Education classroom. We have 7 wonderful students; Imogen, Evie, Lucas, Damien, Tyrese, Tyler and Lincoln this year.

In Semester 1, our topics are ‘Our class’, ‘On the beach’ and ‘The Zoo’. In Semester 2, we learn about ‘Australian Sport’ and ‘The Seasons’. In our classroom we focus on developing physical skills such as sitting, standing and walking to increase independency and using our hands effectively on a everyday basis. Also, our other priority is communication. Our goal is to find the best solution to our students so they can all have a “voice” through AAC methods. In Green Gum, we practise self/life care skills as well as self-feeding and toileting. We are looking forward to a very exciting year ahead with lots of fun and learning opportunities.
