Havelock North High School operates one Learning Support class at both Year 9 and Year 10. The students are carefully selected based on their individual learning needs and requirements. The students are based in the same learning centre for their English and Social Studies lessons which provides the stability and routine required for success. The grouping of students remains constant for all other core subjects, however a teacher aid is permanently assigned to the class.
We provide students with support as they enter into a high school setting. The following points outline the core principles of the Learning Support programme:
Students are provided with supported learning in English, mathematics, social studies, science and physical education. Teacher aids provide continuity of support for many students in their option classes.
'Students are provided with supported learning in English, mathematics, social studies, science and physical education'
'Students are supported by teacher aids in option subjects (ICT, soft and hard materials technology, art and languages)'
'Teachers and teacher aids, working with students requiring learning support, participate in professional development to provide them with appropriate teaching strategies'
