The goal for St Lucy's students is to develop their natural curiosity about the world, their attitude of enquiry and problem-solving into a lifelong interest in learning.
Knowledge and understanding of the natural and man-made environment for students with cognitive challenges comes particularly from asking questions of their known world. It also comes from practical and direct experience of the phenomena in which they are interested.
Computer and assistive technology skills are critical for students with above-average physical and cognitive needs. These skills also provide expanding opportunities for scaffolding, supporting communication and independence.
Outcome: Students learn to ask questions and solve problems as part of coming to understand, appreciate and care for the environment around them. They use technology to enhance their learning, performance and experience across social, leisure and academic aspects of their lives.
