Learning Support Coordinators
By working with parents and faculty, the Learning Support Coordinators guide caregivers regarding learning-related matters. The primary role of our Learning Support Coordinators is to support boys who may not be performing to grade level expectations and/or are experiencing learning difficulties. This support can include any of the following: academic screening, observation of the student in different learning environments, meetings with parents and teachers to make recommendations to help the student, consultation regarding strategies and modifications, discussion of student work and referrals to external services.
The Learning Support Coordinators recruit and advise high school boys who tutor younger students. The Learning Support Coordinators are also involved in admissions screening for RP and grade 1, and consult with principals at all levels as needed for admissions.
The school aims to provide an environment conducive to the promotion and maintenance of good health. A full-time nurse is available during the school day, and care is provided for any health-related condition which impairs learning. The nurse provides liaison among the school, home, community agencies, physicians and other medical personnel.
St. Mary’s does not have the facilities to serve children who have serious learning, emotional or physical disabilities, and all students are enrolled in mainstream classes. Students must be able to learn in the mainstream classes with a minimum of special assistance.
