Green Gum is a Kindy to Year 4 Conductive Education classroom. We have 9 wonderful students; Luca, Ridhan, Alisa, Zhiqing, Tyrese, Jun Hao (Lukie), Charlotte, Faris and Einas this year. In Semester 1, our topics are ‘All about me’, ‘My family’ and ‘Australian animals’. In Semester 2, we learn about ‘Environment’, ‘Pirates’, ‘Princesses’ and ‘Superheros’.

In our classroom we focus on developing physical skills such as sitting, standing and walking to increase independence and using our hands effectively on 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 such as self-feeding and toileting. We are looking forward to have a very exciting year ahead with lots of fun and learning opportunities.
