Talent and Learning Development
Talent Development is primarily delivered within curriculum programs at Carey. It is designed to allow students to maintain curiosity, creativity and motivation by fostering their skills in thinking and research, and providing extension in their area of talent.
Through individual programs, small groups, whole-class and whole-school activities, students are supported to reach their academic and personal goals.
We monitor all of our students’ development very closely. The classroom teachers, with the support of Learning Development staff and allied educators, cater for children who are identified as having special learning needs. This includes students who have genuine difficulties with their learning, including problems with literacy and numeracy and organisational issues.
Individual Learning Plans are created, with clearly defined learning goals where appropriate. Learning Development teachers meet with classroom teachers weekly to plan for the needs of all students, including those with special needs.
