Supporting the needs of our students
The philosophy of the Learning Support Department at Kaiapoi High School is to ensure that teaching and learning occurs in an inclusive environment. Inclusion means where everyone belongs, is accepted, supports and is supported by his or her peers and other members of the school community in the course of having his or her educational needs met.
We value working collaboratively with students, whanau, parents/caregivers, school staff and other professionals involved with the students. We value all of our students and their diversity.
Mainstreaming is the underlying philosophy of the school and drives our procedures.
Our Learning Support Coordinator is Geraldine Enersen and our Learning Associates for 2017 are Jill Cassidy, Linda Bowen, Jan Brown, Julie Brown, Wendy McNally and Anita Malcolm.
