Red Gum

Classroom Teacher:  Talicia Dodd

Education Assistants: Gill, Sam, Daniel & Kathy

Welcome to Red Gum in 2020.

Six students make up Redgum this year on Monday to Wednesday ranging from Year two to four. On Thursdays and Fridays, we will have three friends from Room 9 join us; Ririwai, Russell and Tyler. 

Redgum will be following the principles of Conductive Education as an Aspects of Conductive Education classroom with the ongoing support of a Teacher Conductor, Shona Ballantyne; as well as Conductor Tyran Van Biljon.

Students will be learning to move their bodies task series twice a week, as well as daily changes of position to access materials in the world around them, support posture and transfer in the class. Students will also participate in other specialist programs weekly including Swimming, Music and Sensory Time.

Redgum students will also participate in Literacy, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), Art, and Play. Redgum will have weekly news sharing sessions this year to help practice our communication skills. Communication with electronic and non-electronic Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) will underpin all activities. We will be engaging in the ‘Rainbow Way’ by attending assemblies, Rainbow Rallies and exploring the ‘Six Kinds of Best’ values in class.

We are excited for a fun-filled year of learning in Redgum!
