Welcome to Rose Gum 2019! My name is Josie Vanweerden.  I am the teacher in Rose Gum. In university, I specialised in both Early Childhood Education and Special Needs. Our class has seven students this year ranging from kindy to year two. This year we have an amazing team of Education Assistants. Their names are Kaoru, Jo, Michelle, Nikki and Ros.


Our focus in Rose Gum is to develop strong independent long life skills for the purpose of students to effectively integrate into their community .In the classroom we recognise the importance of communication and language (including early literacy and numeracy), social and emotional and physical development. We corporate and teach these skills through a play based and structured task work program. Other programs include Art, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), Six Kind of Best Values, cooking and a daily obstacle course.
