Welcome to Room 8 2021!

Room 8 is an Aspects of Conductive Education class with seven students from Kindy to Year Four.  Room 8 has the support of Teacher Conductor, Shona Ballantyne and Conductor Tyran Van Biljon. Students learn to move their bodies in lying or sitting task series twice a week, practice fine motor skills with hand task series and other activities, as well as active transfers move from one place to another and promote independence and daily changes of position to access materials in the world around them and support posture. All Room 8 students participate in specialist programs weekly including Swimming and Sensory. The Pre-Primary to Year Four students will also participate in Music and the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics),  program in the specialised STEM room. Communication is a big focus which underpins everything that students are taught.
