Eastwood Deaf Facility was the first Primary Deaf Facility established in Victoria in 1992.

Eastwood is a fully integrated educational (P-6) setting, where Deaf and Hard of Hearing students are engaged in purposeful learning, working alongside their hearing peers supported by trained Teachers of the Deaf and classroom teachers in a caring, supportive environment.

 

Our Goal
Eastwood Deaf Facility is committed to providing rich, diverse learning experiences that will assist our students to achieve their full academic and personal potential.

About the Facility
Students participate in all aspects of the School Curriculum and Specialist classes, with support from trained Teachers of the Deaf.

We strongly value our relationships with Parents/Guardians and hold scheduled School Support Group (SSG) Meetings to share information as to how best support each Facility student, both at home and school.

We respect the role that families play in the education of their child as well as family’s choice regarding preferred mode of communication.

Individual Learning Plans (ILP’s) are developed to support each child’s educational experience. This includes small group or individual sessions out of the classroom, working with Facility Staff, on a regular basis.

 

Services
Eastwood Deaf Facility provides the following services to their students and families.

Entry to Facility
Students must have a bilateral, sensorineural moderate/severe to profound hearing loss at 40dB or greater.

Transport
The Department of Education and Training (DET) provides a Conveyance Allowance for families that live more than 4.8kms (one way) from their closest Deaf Facility.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/4″][vc_column_text]eastwood-IMG_5720eastwood-IMG_5273eastwood-Sen Facilityeastwood-January Birthdayseastwood-IMG_6845eastwood-IMG_5268[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
