Every child is different and so is his or her learning journey

Our approach to learning puts the growth of each individual child at the heart of schooling. Schools in the Diocese of Parramatta are places of wonder, exploration and endless possibilities. St Monica's welcomes and truly values each student in our diverse and multicultural learning community.

Each child’s unique strengths and needs guide the design of the learning opportunities we provide to our students.

After all, learning how to learn is equally important as what we learn!

Aspect Learning Support Centre

St Monica’s is a host school for one of eleven satellite classes supported from the Western Sydney School for children with Autism. As the host school, we work in partnership with Aspect by providing integration involving spiritual, social, academic and sporting opportunities. We offer an inclusive and welcoming environment for all students.

The class is a primary class for children aged from five to twelve years and is supported by a teacher and teacher's aides. Integration is accommodated in the mainstream classroom, with the assistance of an aide, with a view to independent integration where possible. Students are included in mainstream school life as often as possible, participating in whole school activities, playground activities, assemblies and some excursions.

If you are interested in enrolling your child in the Aspect class, contact Aspect Western Sydney School, Wetherill Park on 8786 3000, or via email at westsyd@autismspectrum.org.au
