We strive to provide all students with an education and school community that gives them the best start to a happy, healthy and fulfilling life.
At Harvest Home Primary School, we draw on the knowledge and insight of our regional Koorie Education Support Office (KESO). We proudly fly three flags at the front of our school (Australian, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander). Our staff and families collaborate to support the learning of our Koorie students through Individual Education Plans and regular Student Support Group meetings. Our Koorie students are invited to collaborate on special school projects such as designing our interschool sport AFL jumpers and Acknowledgement to Country video.
The Program for Students with Disabilities (PSD) provides funding for eligible students with disabilities who attend a mainstream or specialist school. The seven funding categories are:
At Harvest Home Primary school we ensure reasonable adjustments are made to provide all students with a disability or learning difficulty with the opportunity to access learning and experience success. Students who are funded under the Program for Students with Disabilities also receive a level of support from our wonderful Education Support Staff.
Along with various engagement clubs offered during break times, we have a supervised Passive Play area. Passive Play provides students with a range of developmental toys and games. The Passive Play area supports students to feel engaged and connected. It also provides them with the opportunity to develop social skills and discover new interests.
