The Greystanes High School support unit's aim is to teach our students the skills and knowledge they need now and in the future to live and work as successfully and independently as possible.
The support unit at Greystanes High School consists of three classes; two IM classes for students with a mild intellectual disability and one IO class for students with a moderate intellectual disability. The students are primarily taught a life skills curriculum which is set by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA). Focus areas include literacy and numeracy skills for life, social competence and work readiness. Each student in the support unit sets individual goals that are negotiated with their teachers and parents/carers and we work towards the achievement of these goals together.
Our students are considered part of the whole school student body. They are included in whole school events. The students in the support unit have to observe the school values of responsible, respectful, active learners.
