Shepparton High School Deaf Facility was established in 2003. Individual student’s programs are based on recommendations from their Program Support Group (PSG) and parent participation in decisions impacting on their child’s education is welcome and encouraged. All methods of communication are offered, depending on each student’s preferences.
Deaf and hard of hearing students attend mainstream classes alongside their hearing peers with support from staff within the Deaf Facility. Camps, sporting events, excursions and other school events which deaf and hard of hearing students are involved in are supported by staff from the Deaf Facility.
Individual students may attend tutorial classes in the Deaf Facility itself if agreed on by the PSG. These classes may involve tutoring in:
- English-Language/Literacy support
- Individual subject tutorials
- Deaf Studies
- Speech Therapy is available upon request (private tutoring)
Shepparton High School offers Auslan as a LOTE subject from Years 7 to 12 and employs a Deaf adult to assist in these classes.
Visitors and enquiries are always very welcome at Shepparton High School Deaf Facility. Please arrange an appointment with the Coordinator.
